Mr. Garner brought class and a wry sense of humor that laughed with you, not at you, to everything he did. His like won't be seen again. He did such an excellent job with Rockford Files--named the supporting cast and did a terrif job choosing the players: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071042/?ref_=nv_sr_1 << ran for 7 seasons--good run by any measure. And natch we shouldn't forget Maverick: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050037/?ref_=nv_sr_3 << ran for 6 seasons in the late 50's-early 60's.
A man accustomed to hear only the echo of his own sentiments, soon bars all the common avenues of delight, and has no part in the general gratification of mankind--Dr. Johnson

A sad loss! I liked Jim, the movie Notebook was exceptional !
" WHEN I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD, MY MOTHER ALWAYS TOLD ME THAT HAPPINESS WAS THE KEY TO LIFE. WHEN I WENT TO SCHOOL, THEY ASKED ME WHAT I WANTED TO BE WHEN I GREW UP. I WROTE DOWN "HAPPY". THEY TOLD ME I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE ASSIGNMENT AND I TOLD THEM THEY DIDN'T UNDERSTAND LIFE."
- JOHN LENNON
Rockford Files was my all-time favorite. I've always been a Garner fan.
