RIP James Garner

Recommended Posts

So sad to read of the death of James Garner at the age of 86. I loved the films he made with Doris Day - Move Over, Darling and The Thrill Of It All, and remember watching The Rockford Files when I was younger, and still enjoy watching a couple of his later films, Maverick and The Notebook. In fact, I think I might look out one of his films to watch this evening.

I always enjoyed his performances, and got the impression that he was a good man in life, with no gossip or revelations about him.

 

I had no idea he was 86!

He was a very good actor and one of my favorites. Garner was good in both TV and movies. May he RIP.

 

As Chrissy states, the impression is that he was a good man in life. He was well liked by many.

I was sad to hear about this.  I used to enjoy The Rockford Files a lot, and I loved him in the Support Your Local Sheriff/Gunfighter movies.  But my favourite will always be Hendley, The Scrounger, in The Great Escape and his friendship with Blythe, The Forger.  Marvellous.

Loved him in The Great Escape. :smile:

The Great Escape was a "great' film. James Garner and Steve McQueen were both excellent in the film.

 

James Garner was married to the same wife for about 58 years, says a lot about him. another great, Paul Newman, also had a long marriage to his wife....50 years.

'I don’t know a lady who isn’t a little bit in love with him'--Julie Andrews on James Garner.

 

An easy to like actor with an under-stated acting style that delivered the goods superlatively time and time again; Bret Maverick, Hendley, Nichols, Jim Rockford, Jim Doyle, or Duke...to name a few...James Garner was a delight to watch.

 

R.I.P Mr Garner, and thank you for the celluloid memories. :)
