That's too bad. Seems like he certainly had a productive and memorable life as an actor though.
It always pains me to see the older generation disappear. I've always been one to hang on to the good things of the past....and James Garner was one of them.

I was definitely saddened when I heard the Mr Garner had passed. I really enjoyed the movies and shows he was in and him being a car guy too helped! RIP sir.

RIP. Few have an automotive stunt named after their character-- and he did his own stunts.

He'll never be replaced by anyone that is better.

A true loss, considering what passes for 'talent' anymore.

Demonstrated comedy chops admirably in "Victor Victoria." That was one of my favorite Garner performances along with "Barbarians at the Gate."

If you happen to get the METV channel- they show The Rockford Files (Central Time) at 5 PM Sun, and 11 AM M-F. I've been recording & watching on the DVD/HD recorder & the shows hold up real well even now. Love that gold Firebird too. thumbsup
Too bad Pontiac never made a Rockford Edition Firebird.

How sad to hear! I grew up watching him & Rocky & Angel in The Rockford Files. Lots of good memories. They surely don't make shows like RF anymore....

What? No mention of his Firebird and the patented J-turns?

(Plenty of YouTube vids.)
