James Garner was an American actor and producer whose charming demeanor and wry humor made him a beloved figure in American television and film. While Garner had a long and very successful career, he passed away at 86 years old on July 19, 2014.


Garner first gained fame as the easygoing Bret Maverick in the 1950s Western comedy series "Maverick" and went on to solidify his status as a leading man in the 1970s detective series "The Rockford Files," for which he received an Emmy Award. His portrayal of Jim Rockford, a private investigator with a knack for getting into trouble, became one of television's most enduring characters.


Garner's film career was equally distinguished, with memorable roles in "The Great Escape" (1963), "Murphy's Romance" (1985), for which he received an Academy Award nomination, and "The Notebook" (2004). His on-screen persona, often that of a charismatic and slightly flawed everyman, endeared him to generations of fans.


Beyond his acting career, Garner was known for his advocacy work and participation in civil rights movements. He remained active in both film and television into the early 21st century, leaving behind a legacy of versatility, charm, and an everyman appeal that few have matched.
