Twenty years ago when my daughter was eight we were coming home from an L A dance competition and who should be on that plane but Mr.James Garner who spoke directly to Sarah asking her about her day. I was beside myself. We have his autograph on a napkin and a photo of the two.

Just dropping by to say hello from a long time James Garner fan in Australia. I don't think there's anything he made I haven't watched. I really wish they'd brought Heartsounds out on dvd. He's a wonderful actor.
I wish they would put Heartsounds on DVD too! I would love to watch it again.

Hi Gigi,Are you the little girl I met at theNewporter Inn in the early 60's. At the time you said you were going to be a movie star, I just wondered if you became one.

I've never admired anyone more than this man. Talking about presence, he lived the fullest life any man ever could. God bless his beautiful soul.

What a lovely post! I absolutely agree, and I've been following him since Maverick in 1957. I admired him then, and I admire him even more now. I'm in touch with his daughter, Gigi Garner, and she is devoted to him, says he's a "wonderful father."

He's written his memoirs - believe it or not! They will be published by Simon & Schuster in November.

What a great post! I couldn't agree more. Jim has written his memoirs, and the book will be published by Simon & Schuster in November. Definitely looking forward to that.

He was 6'3" but has lost some height over the years due to collapsing cartilage in his back and knees.

Hi, I was wondering if James Garner ever owned a black 1971 Cadillac Limo, I know he loved cars and racing. Best wishes to him & his family.

I know way back in the late 50s - early 60s he owned a black Cadillac convertible.

Cars and racing definitely high on his list!

I have always enjoyed James Garner's work. I watched Sayonara as a little girl in Radio City Music Hall and wondered why the geisha liked Marlon Brando better than his handsome friend. I have always enjoyed his work. Am finishing his autobiography now and have not changed my opinion. Please send him my best wishes and thanks for many smiles.

Hi Everyone
Ilike everyone else have been concerned after Mr Garners health. Living here in the UK there has been no update at all.

I must admit when I have visited LA last year I did drive to the Garner house just in case he was around, maybe in the garden. I did not have the courage to press the intercom and ask after his health.

It would be great to find out how he is getting along.

Best wishes

Richard

I hope James Garner is recovering from his stroke. We really miss him. He is a great actor and I've seen everything he ever made. I will watch a movie strictly on the fact that he is in it, because I know his performance will always be brilliant. I'm still watching "Maverick" and "Rockford Files" reruns!
I always see the same names come up in the credits of his shows and movies and its obvious that he has incredible loyalty to the people who work with him.
I was just watching "The Thrill of it All" with James Garner and Doris Day; very funny. He is a great comic actor as well as dramatic. Love "The Americanization of Emily". I watch it every time it comes on.
Hope he gets well soon!

To everyone who is concerned about Jim's health! He is just fine. He recovered completely from his stroke some time ago. There were no permanent aftereffects at all.
His real problem is arthritis after all the injuries he has had during his life - football, Korea, Rockford Files... If you have arthritis, you know how that can slow you down!
For all of you who love Jim Garner his daughter, Gigi, has a tribute blog for him at http://mavrock1.tumblr.com/

James Garner has always very simply been a class act. As I read more about his life, I am astounded by everything he has been through and yet he still conducts his life with dignity and style. Bravo, James, Bravo. He probably has no Iidea how loved and admired he is.

I've always been an admirer of Mr. Gardner. As a child I remember wanting him to be my father. His tv personalities were often of a calm, cool and collected type, much like my grandfather, whom I adored. Sorry he is gone.
