Trivia

Stephen J. Cannell created a character named Rockford for a script he wrote for this series. That script was based on a story idea by his boss, Roy Huggins. That script was rejected by ABC, so it was rewritten and eventually became the pilot for the classic NBC series, The Rockford Files: Backlash of the Hunter (1974). See more »

Netfilx doesn't have Toma but it does have the 1st season of Baretta movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Baretta_Season_1/60030521?trkid=2361637 I wasn't much a Tony Musante fan.....as an actor in rolls I thought him to stiff, unbelievable and self absorbed.

What, you say makes a good actor? An actor that sweeps one into the character, e.g., Jimmy Stewart. When I watch a Jimmy Stewart movie I do not see Jimmy Stewart I see the character he's portraying.

John Wayne - I watch John Wayne because he WAS John Wayne. I could care less about the character he was playing unless it was a world figure....to me HE was bigger than the characters he portrayed The difference between the 2? None really....

John Wayne was America...(every male kid thought secretly he was really their Dad [-grin] or wanted to be John Wayne when they grew into a man ). John Wayne was The Greatest Male Movie Star ever Jimmy Stewart was a Great Star BUT he was "The" BEST character actor that ever lived and performed in movies
