 Sad  Jim Garner has passed

Bret Maverick, Jim Rockford & in several Westerns "Duel at Diablo," ''Hour of the Gun," ''Support Your Local Sheriff "
and ''Support Your Local Gunfighter"

One of my favorite rolls was Hendley 'The Scrounger' in The Great Escape...

Like him Grand Prix too....

I read that Garner was paid a pittance for the "Rockford Files" series. He accepted the deal as it kept him working and paid the bills.

How many times did his trailer get blown to smithereens? The show was head and shoulders above some of it's contemporaries and definitely better fare than the current wave of "reality" shows. Kept Noah Beery Jr. in a job as well.

I believe that the actor who played his cop nemesis "Dennis"(?) preceded Garner's passage by a few years.

His older Brother "Jack" died a few years ago, he had appeared in the Rockford Files, a recurring roll in Maverick.

Read his autobiography awhile back. Great book with loads of info from his entire career. What a great entertainer, he will be greatly missed.

The guy with the Armenian name that played "Angel" in the series was a great character actor. I really enjoyed those episodes.

He was a man's man. I don't want to be any of this current crop but a lot of us wanted to BE James Garner.

One of my all time favorite films is the Great Escape .....
Garner, McQueen, Colburn , Bronson ( Magnificent 7 trio ) these guys were COOL !

Garner ( like McQueen & later Paul Newman) was quite the avid Auto Racer , both Road Racing & Off Road Racing
He was hooked after "Grand Prix" .
I attended the 1969 Daytona 24 Hours race and recall the American International Racing Lolas .
I also remember his road racing L88 Corvettes and his Off Road Oldsmobile 442.

I also mention here, I was at Sebring , when Steve McQueen ( with a broken foot ) & Peter Revson finished second in Porsche 908
23 seconds behind Mario Andretti & Chris Amon in a Ferrari . The 908 was a dated car as the 917's were the factory & John Wyre entries.

But I digress, this is about James Garner .....

One of my favorite Garner scenes is between him and Bruce Dern in Support Your Local Sheriff. Dern has just attempted to slip away from the jail with no bars and is intercepted by Garner. When Dern pulls his gun, Garner tells him he took the precaution of unloading it. Dern hands over the gun and as they continue to talk, Garner calmly begins to remove the bullets one by one. Dern sees this and says,  "Oh that's funny!  That's real funny! " Later, while complaining to his father, the great Walter Brennan, about the new sheriff, Dern says "...and he lies to me about my gun! "
Hysterical  !

Hysterical  !

And when the father and two sons try to break him out of jail, he trys to tell them the bars are set in too tight to be pulled out by horses...because he helped set them in himself. Wasn't anything else to do. But the peas-de-resistance is when they have Dern chained to the canon, and his kin finally surrender, and Dern is led away. Garner says the old canon isn't loaded, and to prove it he uses his cigar to demonstrate the fact. Whereupon the canon fires send a ball into Madam Orr's house, and Dern faints dead away! Wonder what the jury decided about Dern's guilt or innocence???  Wink
