    Good actor and a very likable guy. I used to watch MAVERICK as a kid with my dad - he just loved westerns.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    I highly recommend The Ultimate Gift, a later Garner film.

    Another talented actor passes. Condolences to his family and his many fans around the world.
    Its so sad John. All the great ones are dying off....Kirk Douglas is about the only one left.......I remember Garner well for his parts in the old TV series Maverick and for one of my favorite movies of all times "The Great Escape.. God Bless him and may he rest in Peace.

    Growing old can be hell - either you die or all those you knew and enjoyed life with die before you.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You're very kind not to mention whatever it is he has up his nose - now that isn't something you see every day! I didn't even notice the haircut till you mentioned it! :
