I want to dedicate today’s post to James Garner who sadly died today aged 86.

I don’t have many acting heroes, but James Garner has always been one of them. If you don’t know his work then check out TV shows like “The Rockford Files” and “Maverick”, and films such as “The Great Escape” and “Support Your Local Gunfighter”. The Rockford Files is one of my earliest TV memories and James Garner’s laid back style and wit in this and many other roles really spoke to me.

Not only was he a fantastic actor, but he fought in the Korean War and earned two purple hearts.

Rest in peace.
