I read this and said “Oh NO!” Cannell’s a story-teller. He creates interesting characters with personalities, good plots and great dialogue. He’s an amazing American. This is sad.
I read this and said "Oh NO!" He's so YOUNG. I have been enjoying his TV series forever, it seems. He must have been a genius and very well connected and quite charming to enjoy such success at such an early age. Since the Rockford Files debuted in 1974, Cannell must have been only about 31 or 32 when he wrote it.
