I loved James Garner. The Rockford Files and Maverick are two of the best TV shows ever made and The Great Escape is one of my favorite movies.
Fun fact: the movie Chicken Run is based on The Great Escape.
My dad and James Garner were the same age and both served with the 5th Regimental Combat Team in the Korean War.

He was before my time. Really the only thing I know him from was The Notebook, which he was great in.

Sail on...

If you ever get a chance to watch this, I highly recommend it. The sequel (Support Your Local Gunfighter) wasn't bad either.

Actually, he was good in pretty much everything he did. The character's he played in the movies Jah recommended, as well, as the characters he played on TV (Maverick and Rockford) were all pretty similar. They were wisecrackers who preferred to talk their way out of a fight, but could handle themselves if push came to shove.

The Rockford Files is on Netflix. It's worth watching. I'm sure some of his other work is on there, too.

Always loved watching James Garner. He was also good in the Sitcom "8 Simple Rules.." that he joined after John Ritter passed away. He was the kind of guy I wished was my grandfather.

But for some reason, with much respect and admiration for the man, I thought he had already passed a few years ago.
