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.

Standing on a barricaded sidewalk with a handful of residents in a quiet, upscale Gold Coast neighborhood last week, I watched President Obama’s motorcade drive by on its way to a private fund-raising event. Six Chicago Police Department motorcycles with their blue lights flashing headed a motorcade resembling some kind of mobile military fortress. Another 26 vehicles flanking the one carrying the president paraded by, including a small truck, several vans carrying the press pool, an ambulance, then SUV after SUV -- including one with its back hatch open, revealing agents bearing visible weapons. My first thought: a 26-vehicle

First lady Michelle Obama believes that Democrats running for Congress eagerly desire her presence on the campaign trail during the run-up to the 2014 midterm elections. However, she has avoided helping some Senate Democrats because she’s mad at them for failing to show adequate support for her deeply unpopular attempt to change people’s diets. The Daily Caller is not making this up. The New York Times has reported it.

STOCKHOLM-A Swedish woman has become the world´s first to give birth after having a womb transplant, opening up the possibility for thousands of infertile women to have babies, the doctor in charge of the research project said on Saturday. The unnamed Swede in her mid-30s delivered a healthy baby boy by caesarean section in early September, around two years after receiving a uterus donated by an unrelated, 61-year-old. She was one of seven women who successfully underwent a womb transplant from a live donor – in most cases the recipient’s mother - and subsequently had in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment.

There is enough energy in the ground right now to supply the needs of the U.S. for the next 100 years, and we can get to it economically.

KYOTO, Japan — North and South Korea have agreed to hold another round of high-level talks after a top-level Northern delegation, including the men thought to be second and third in command behind Kim Jong Un, paid a surprise visit to the South on Saturday. The unusual and unannounced trip — the first such high-level visit in more than five years — comes at a time of intense speculation about North Korea’s leadership, given that Kim, the third-generation leader of the communist state, has not been seen in public for a month. It also comes amid a steady stream of disparaging comments

Dallas hospital changes story

Officials at the Dallas hospital treating the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the U.S. have conceded that doctors handling the case knew when the patient was initially turned away that he had traveled to Texas from Africa. They said the miscommunication was due to a flaw in the electronic medical record system. But a new statement suggests that doctors were indeed made aware of Duncan´s travel history. Earlier this week, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital officials said that emergency room doctors who first treated the man, Thomas Eric Duncan, were not aware that had recently arrived from Africa, even though a nurse who questioned

Thomas Eric Duncan has the distinction of being America´s Patient Zero - the first but not the last person to develop Ebola symptoms in the United States. Is he a US citizen? No, he´s Liberian. Is he a resident of the United States? No, he landed at Washington´s Dulles Airport on September 20th, in order to visit his sister and having quit his job in Monrovia a few weeks earlier. So he´s a single unemployed man with relatives in the US and no compelling reason to return to his native land. That alone is supposed to be cause for immigration scrutiny. In addition, visitors

I don’t think any single story has the potential to reveal so much about what is wrong, fundamentally wrong, with political correctness and law enforcement. The scope of avoidance is so unbelievable it’s taking hours of assembly and reconfiguration just to comprehend. And let me be absolutely clear the timeline where the broadcasted BOLO’s were needed is 2009 to 2014. Between 2002 and 2009 there was MORE than enough connective information and factual forensic evidence to know there was a serial rapist/abductor around VA college campuses. Hundreds of rapes, and sexual assaults (2002-2014); dozens of abductions and murders, all kept

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.
