I remember "The Rockford Files" fondly.

He brought a humorous and human side to

being a P.I.

One of my favorite movies is "Murphy's Romance". He

embraced the role, and brought rural Americana to the screen

in a way we will cherish forever.

Mr. Garner was one of my all time favorite actors.
He will be missed.

I am going to miss his characters. I am quite certain that all of the times he was knocked-out as Rockford must have contributed to his demise.

He was a Korean vet with two purple hearts.

I liked almost everything he did but I really liked him in the movie "Grand Prix"

One of my favorite racing movies. The sequence of Monaco, with the split screens and narrative about walking the course, and the number of shifts performed, artfully showed why that level of racing is truly a sport. It also emphasized how tough it was back then.
