Despite his liberal leanings, actor James Garner, who died last weekend, provided some of the most conservative role models U.S. television has ever seen — role models that rarely exist now.
Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western "Maverick" led to a stellar career in TV and films such as "The Rockford Files" and his Oscar-nominated "Murphy's Romance," has died, police said. He was 86.
Few actors could register disbelief, exasperation or annoyance with more comic subtlety.
More than two decades after “Maverick” made him a star, James Garner revisited the character for the series “Bret Maverick,” which is making its DVD debut this week.
The popular black-and-white comedy-Western series “Maverick” loses James Garner but gains Roger Moore as the fourth season makes its DVD debut.
