James Garner (1928-2014)

I know I liked him when I was a kid because in the album of movie star photos I collectd back then is this picture:

on the back I wrote the year Warner Brothers sent it to me -- 1958.

Garner was a terrific actor. he was equally at home with comedy & drama. I think his reputation is less than it shd be because he was one of those actors who didn't show off. he workd so hard at his craft that he made it look easy. we rarely catch him acting.

He did a great made for TV film with James Woods about 2 brothers; Garner was the older brother who had to keep tabs on Woods, who played a schizophrenic. Excellent acting on both sides.
