    I always looked forward to watching this series on Sunday nights. Rock Hudson was a very cool guy back then, as well as a very good actor. The series lost it’s edge after the 1975 season with the departure of Susan St. James. Rock Hudson began to really show his age that last season at age 50, and was reported to be drinking heavily. In some of the last shows that were filmed his face looked bloated, and he had definitely put on weight. NBC probably did him a favor by ending the show.

    Plane crash,his orgiinal housekeeper played by Rhoda star Nancy Walker left and was replaced by her sister (Martha Raye) in the show.

    Rock Hudson and Susan Saint James LOATHED each other!

  16. patsaxon says:

    Wow! Rock Hudsan was a very good looking man, especially with his longer hair and mustache!

  17. TheREWF says:

    how did she die off of this show?

  18. inkey2 says:

    to deerfieldproductions: yeah, i agree, The plots were a little weak but with Susan St James in it…..i couldn’t care how weak it was. To me the best one they ever did was a Halloween episode where it started by a spooky masked face outside their 2nd floor bedroom window. I remember seeing this halloween episode for the first time and it was really creepy

  19. inkey2 says:

    OMG Susan St James was so hot and cute. When this show premiered I was in high school and I had such a crush on her. When she left the show……thats when I said goodbye to it. No Susan St James…..I don’t watch it.

  20. deerfieldproductions says:

    This show is great, though more than a little campy. One episode had Mac & Enright stopping at a bath house on their way to the office… in San Francisco?!?! The earliest episodes seemed like movies that someone cut down. Their plots were weaker than the Rockford Files though, because the often needed a sudden resolution. Still the Star Power alone….

    Fair enough but why do you feel you have to say “IM NOT GAY ! but….” ? ; Why would you care about making a point of YOUR sexuality when probably no one was questioning it

  22. TheREWF says:

    NO. i had the biggest crush on susan st james and still do. but as for Mr. Rock Hudson he lived his life like he wanted to. IM NOT GAY! but i loved his body of work like this show. we all have to live in this world together and live and let live.

  23. selloutasaurus says:

    had the biggest crush on Susan St James when I was a kid!

  24. edybeast says:

    Susan St. James was a doll.
