    RIP James Garner. Watching Rockford Files was a favorite! Plus, the theme music for R.F. still resonates to this day. His character usually had the temerity to beat the bad guys at their game no matter what their ploy! He was easy on the eyes to gaze upon, too. 🙂

    Its no secret I’m a big fan of the old TV Westerns,where the good guy always won.The Encore Western Channel still shows episodes of Maverick in the afternoon.All the heroes we looked up to are just about gone.There was nothing phony about him.He was all man.

    Brett Maverick. Quite a likable character. They picked the right guy for that part.
    I felt this scene from “Darby’s Rangers” (James Garner as William O. Darby) was kinda fitting…
