 Wayne Newton's ranch was used in the filming of this episode, Casa de Shenandoah, is still owned by Wayne Newton and is located in Henderson NV. 

 The Whittlesea Blue Cab Co. is still in business today in Las Vegas and it still uses the same phone number of 384-6111. In this photo the cab was dropping off Jim Rockford at the Monarch Hotel which was located directly behind The Fremont and The Mint Casinos. It is no longer there, it was replaced with a large parking garage.

Some extra photos from this episode:










The opening scene in this episode was at a golf range. The above vehicle used to pick up the golf balls was shown. If you look closely you will see actor Luis Delgado driving it. Luis was a regular on the Rockford Files, usually playing a uniform police officer. Delgado was the brother-in-law to one of the show's producers, Roy Huggins.

Old Vegas was great. Yes the new Vegas is big abd beautiful but the 1960's and 70's Vegas was crazy.

I once banged a escort gal in the Gold Key Motel. The magic fingers mattress was great.
