Introduction:James Garner is a handsome, talented actor. I like his no-nonsense style. It's hard to believe he'll be 83 this year! He's made more than 90 movies. Here are my five favorite James Garner movies.
This 1969 movie is a showcase for James Garner's wry sense of humor. He plays a sheriff who uses his wits to bring law to the old west.
This quiet movie starred James Garner and Sally Field. James Garner plays a pharmacist who helps Sally Field, a newcomer in a small town, get settled. The age difference between the two poses little problem.
James Garner and Doris Day and Polly Bergen star in this movie where he is married to both women. One of his first non-Western or military movies, this shows off Garner's leading man persona.
Okay, this isn't a movie, but I came to absolutely love James Garner from his role as Jim Rockford in The Rockford Files that ran from 1974 to 1980. He played an ex-con turned private eye who lived in a dumpy trailer who would rather be fishing.
James Garner and Joanne Woodward starred in this movie based on an Anne Tyler novel. His subtle acting ability was just right to bring the book to life.
