RIP James Garner

James Garner, star of 'Maverick' and 'The Rockford Files,' dies at 86 - LA Times

My first Hollywood crush. It is sad to know he is no longer in this world.

Always a favorite. Sad to see him go.

Loved Maverick, and especially Rockford Files! I had a serious crush on Mr. Garner too. RIP.

When I hear reports like this I feel my youth is sliding away. I had a serious crush on JG in "Maverick", too. I was about 10.
Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

RIP, James Garner. Dang, I loved the "Rockford turnaround!"

I actually tried that once in Mom's Pontiac Bonneville. It didn't go very well.
