According to the Associated Press, few actors could register disbelief, exasperation or annoyance with more comic subtlety than the late James Garner. " Garner had a way of widening his eyes while the corner of his mouth sagged ever so slightly. Maybe he would swallow once to further make his point. This portrait of fleeting disquiet could be understood, and identified by every member of the audience. " Garner took these rare talents and molded himself into an unlikely, quiet hero of such TV favorites as "Maverick" and "The Rockford Files." Garner died Sunday at age 86 in Los Angeles. He will be remembered for "his quick – witted avoidance of conflict" that "offered a refreshing new take on the American hero…" He will be missed. Aloha, Russ.
