James Garner: Tribute to
a Marvelous Maverick

TIME, by Richard Corliss

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 7/20/2014 5:15:54 PM

As a TV and movie star for nearly six decades, the Oklahoma kid made the hard art of acting seem like a game — as deft and persuasive as a gambler´s con He was a man’s man who relied on his wits instead of his fists; a ladies’ man who wouldn’t steal a fella’s girl. Famous for his Maverick Western series in the 1950s and The Rockford Files in the ’70s, and in movies like The Great Escape and Grand Prix in between, James Garner played amiable, independent characters for more than a half-century, and never lost his comforting, enduring appeal.

Garner was drafted in 1950, served in the infantry in Korea, and was wounded twice.

We used to see him on the circuit when we were racing. He seemed like a very nice, down-to-earth guy. Not pretentious. And not overtly political.

It is possible that anything negative he had to say about Reagan might have stemmed from the days when Reagan (a Democrat) was president of the Screen Actors Guild. Garner had a few go-arounds with producers of shows who didn´t pay him what he deserved under his contract.

He was not a chest-thumping politician - just a remarkably entertaining actor - so we enjoyed him and will remember him kindly. I doubt that Ronald Reagan is bearing him any grudges....

In a Rockford Files episode, Garner´s character remarked to a big obnoxious biker, "Your mother wears army boots!" to which the biker responded, "Yeah We´re all proud of her. She graduated top in her class at Ford Ord."

Unexpected humor in tangential situations.

Good stuff.

The passing of a non-family member rarely makes me misty. It did when the only celebrity I ever met died (Jonathan Harris, Dr. Smith on "Lost In Space"), and I always said the only good Marxist was of the Groucho type. I knew time was short for Rockfish but I was still lousy news to wake up to. Big whoop that he was a big lib but I always had the impression he was that way for reasons that made sense for him, unlike most know-nothing know-it-all libs. I will watch "Support Your Local Sheriff" tonight even though I have seen it a number of times. And I am still on the lookout for a gold late 70s Firebird Formula.

The greats always made it look easy - the mark of good acting. Jim, John Wayne and Fred MacMurray were so magically charismatic on screen that they were accused of just playing themselves. In fact, they worked terribly hard and took pride in doing every role with excellence.
Thank you Mr. Garner for an unforgettable movie and TV career! I liked the Christmas movie he did about fifteen years ago with Julie Andrews. Sorry do not recall the name of the film. The two of them were awesome together.

He was a Hollywood liberal but I liked the Maverick and Rockford Files series as well as his many movies.

He was a decorated Korean War veteran who served in the Army shortly before I did. I volunteered 6 months before the Korean War ended. I have the greatest respect and admiration for all who bravely fought in that needless war.

#18, I´d like to believe he was a nice guy in real life... but he made some really nasty remarks about Reagan and other conservatives that were mean and beyond mere disagreement. He also thought what Clinton did was no big deal... which made me wonder what he´d say to Juanita Broaddrick if he met her... would that be ´no big deal´?

I may in the future still enjoy his movies/shows, but they will always be somewhat tarnished as a result of knowing how shallow and nasty his politics were.

A new report showing the continued pileup of unpaid medical bills in states that didn’t expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act is escalating criticism on these Republican-led areas of the country to expand the health insurance program for the poor. The report out last week from the Obama administration shows the costs of uncompensated care are projected to fall by $5.7 billion this year largely because millions of Americans are eligible for expanded Medicaid insurance for the poor under the Affordable Care Act and they are taking advantage. About half of U.S. states opted in favor of expanding Medicaid which

Andrew McCarthy exposes the same fraud we have continued to share. In a recent column for NRO McCarthy explains how the White House had come up with the “Khorosan” al-Qaeda group as nothing more than a political ploy to avoid being ridiculed for their inept and detached prior espousals.

A fire at an FAA radar center in Aurora that grounded hundreds of flights in Chicago and across the country was deliberately set but "is no terrorist act," police said this morning. "There is no terrorist act," said Aurora police Chief Greg Thomas. "This is a local issue with a contract employee and nothing else." The employee was found in the basement of the radar facility suffering from self-inflicted wounds, police said. He was taken to a hospital and the radar center was shut down and evacuated.That prompted a groundstop order that halted all flights in and out of O´Hare and Midway airports.

Las Vegas schools are considering plans to teach children as young as 5 about masturbation and homosexuality. Clark County School District proposed the changes during closed-door meetings with community members last week, EAG News reported. Among the changes include education of homosexuality as early as age 5 and giving everyone “respect regardless of who they are attracted to,” the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Students of that age would also be taught that “touching and rubbing one’s genitals to feel good is called masturbation,” the newspaper said. Parents who weren’t invited to the previous meeting showed up Monday to express their anger. “I felt (the

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,
