1 James Garner R I P on Sun Jul 20, 2014 5:09 pm


Amiable film and television actor James Garner, who starred in popular television series, "Maverick" and "The Rockford Files," died Saturday at his home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. He was 86.

Like many popular leading men of Hollywood's heyday, Garner boasted all-American good looks and a winning personality that carried him through comedy and drama alike. Garner won two Emmys and racked up a total of 15 nominations. He had his greatest impact in television, first on "Maverick" in the '50s and then in the '70s on "The Rockford Files," for which he won an Emmy in 1977. He later appeared in several quality telepics including "Promise," "My Name Is Bill W." and "Barbarians at the Gate," as well as the occasional strong feature such as "Victor/Victoria" and "Murphy's Romance," for which he captured his sole Oscar nomination for lead actor.
