    But I'm pretty sure Jim Rockford was not inspired in any way by Perry Mason. The similar rough edges was just a coincidence. I seem to recall reading that the creators of The Rockford Files just wanted the title character to be a modern day Bret Maverick.

I'm not implying a direct lift. Just felt like they were cut from the same cloth, at least that first Mason book, how they worked the streets and always got paid.
