    RIP: Oscar-nominated actor James Garner died at age 86 in his Los Angeles home Saturday

     

    James was famous for playing gun-slinger Bret Maverick in the 1957 western TV series as well as the 1994 film version.

    Garner also starred in The Great Escape in 1963, Victor Victoria in 1982, Murphy’s Romance in 1985, and Space Cowboys in 2000.

    Born
    in Oklahoma as the youngest of three, the legendary actor was also a
    serviceman for the Merchant Marines, the National Guard, and the Army
    where he was awarded two purple hearts in Korea.

    The acting veteran’s final screen role was opposite Abigail Breslin in the 2007 family drama The Ultimate Gift.

    James is survived by his longtime wife Lois – whom he wed in 1956 – and their 56-year-old daughter Greta ‘Gigi’ Garner.

    Another grand veteran (both on- and off-screen) gone. This rustles my heart a bit. 

    RIP Jim Rockford.

    I read this news this morning and I felt very very sad. I adored this man’s decades long work in film and on the small screen. He had a “presence” that endeared us all.

    RIP. Hope he’s listening to some great tunes by Johnny Winter right now.

    One of my all-time favorite TV actors, in fact one of the five best ever on the small screen. If you’ve never watch “The Rockford Files,” “Maverick,” and some of his TV movies, check out some of the better installments. He seemed to be effortless, kind of the Gene Hackman of television.
