    I'm not into romance movies but 'Murphy's Romance' was just such a lovely, lighthearted movie starring the wonderful James Garner and Sally Field.

    My favorite James Garner films include "The Children's Hour" with Shirley MacLaine and Audrey Hepburn and "Move Over Darling" with Doris Day and Polly Bergen.

    I liked him right from the start in Maverick - never watched Rockford Files much. Unfortunately, most younger individuals will only know him from that dreadful "sitcom" 8 Simple Rules. R.I.P. Jim
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    True but at least they picked a goodie to come in and attempt to replace the void left by John Ritter -- also a very good actor who never received the credit he deserved (mostly because they weren't aware of his theatrical and vocal performances or they weren't aware of his brilliant comedic timing)... imo
    HOPING I CAN HELP
    but, what if .... ?

    We had just finished watching back-to-back Maverick episodes, on Me TV, when I pulled up the internet and read that he had passed… such a sad passing, but he sure did leave his mark. He was my favorite Maverick, all dressed in black… such a good-looking man! Beloved is the one that got me hooked on spending Saturday nights with the Maverick brothers, but he will tell you that he is more of a Rockford Files man. Thankfully, Me TV also runs it daily, during the week, and on Sunday evenings at 6. RIP Mr. Garner… your work means your spirit will live on.

    I heart James Garner. Even when he did those Kodak commercials with Mariette Hartley.

    But mostly as Jim Rockford.......cutey patootie.

    Grew up with Maverick and loved him as Rockford.....but the Notebook wow -- that was an amazing performance. He played that from the heart.

    Jim Rockford was/is the best Private Eye bar none. The Rockford Files was one of my favorite shows.

    How very sad. Such a handsome man, and seemed to be a really nice guy too. I am really sad today.
