    That's really sad, I never knew him but saw him a lot on my Grandmother's tv who watches westerns all the time. Have to break the news to her I guess.

    Thanks for posting this, apdst. I saw it earlier on Yahoo and meant to post it, but I got sidetracked! My bad! I can't think of any role that he played that I didn't like! Great actor, and I loved his smile. R.I.P James Garner. You were one of the great ones! Condolences to his family and friends! :

    Greeting, apdst.

    When I was a kid, dad would watch Rockford Files religiously. At first it was just time to be with dad, but I got to where I enjoyed the show in its own right.

    RIP James. Loved the Rockford Files and dozens of his movies. He was always entertaining. One of my all time faves.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Yes, he was one of those rare actors who was always himself, yet nevertheless became whatever role he was playing without becoming type cast. One of those actors that no matter what role he played, you could not not watch. Rockford Files became iconic as did his starring role in the TV series "Maverick". I think my favorite movie of his was "Murphy's Romance" with Sally Fields.
