- RESURRECTION IN BLACK AND WHITE
Original Air Date: November 7, 1975
Synopsis. Investigative reporter Susan Alexander (played by Joan Van Ark) believes that Dave Krueger was wrongfully convicted of the brutal murder of his girlfriend Cheryl Wilson six years before. Susan hires Rockford to help her prove Krueger innocent.
“Resurrection in Black and White” features some of the most memorable lines of the entire series, including Rockford’s classic retort once he learns that reporter Susan Alexander was nearly killed while investigating the Krueger case.
“Why didn’t you tell me [about the man who nearly drove your car off the road]?” Rockford asks Susan.
“Physical violence has a tendency to put some people off,” explains Susan.
“Yeah,” cracks Rockford. “I’m one of them!”
