James Garner, the understated, wisecracking everyman actor who enjoyed multi-generational success on both the small and big screen, has died. He was 86. He will be truly missed!  Come August 17th, he would've been married for 58 years to his wife. What a wonderful example they were to the Hollywood scene and the world..... Blue

He was a great guy. One of the few who never took himself too seriously.....I'll never forget him in "The Notebook"........"Look guys, that's my sweetheart in there."

RIP Jim......................................

I loved him! Have an autographed pic from when I joined his fan club years and years ago. His has a great autobiography out, not trashy, but great stories of his childhood and how he got to where he is now. Only a little marriage trouble if you could call it that, they lasted a very long time in an arena many don't.

I don't think I've seen any of his movies, but I remember him on 8 Simple Rules, which I watched all the time when it was still on television. R.I.P.

When I was younger I had a crush on him as Jim Rockford. I still adore him. My girls actually enjoy the Rockford Files. I think I have his autobiography here. I'll have to see.

This is my favorite quote from The Notebook....my guess is it meant a lot to James too, knowing what his long marriage meant to him.  James always reminded me of my dad, especially in this movie:

“I am no one special – just a common man with common thoughts. I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I’ve succeeded as gloriously as anyone who ever lived: I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul and for me that has always been enough.”


He lived life well, I'd say.  His acting in that movie in particular was impeccable.  He really left a legacy that he can be proud of with that one. May he rest in peace.


(To Dave, as a sidenote...that scene you shared always ripped my heart out....means even more now that my dad is caring for my mom, who also has Alzheimers.  He would say the same thing "Duke" did in that scene).


“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”

That was a beautiful quote. I'm going to have to watch that movie again, I remember I was surprised how good it was.
I always liked him more than the "glossy" stars, would much rather would have had lunch with him. Although he wasn't "Rockford" a part of him was, he understood the regular guy because he was him for a good part of his life and he never forgot, which is what matters.
