Personality: DUDER
Distinguishing Features: JAWLINE HEWN FROM GRANITE
Attainability: NOT A CHANCE

Here’s a great fact about JG: he married his wife, Lois (a single mother with a seven year old child who was recovering from polio), fourteen days after meeting her. That was in 1956. They are still together. She told him that if he even played a Republican character she would leave him, such is their Democratic loyalty. He was sat in the third row when Martin Luther King gave his ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. He’s a total dude. Sadly now in ill health after a series of strokes, James was once the pinnacle of manliness. Not as hirsute as Burt Reynolds or as wife-beatery as Sean Connery, Garner straddled the small and big screens with comparative ease, his testosterone worn like a magic cape. It’s a good job he changed his name from Bumgarner, which was his moniker from birth. And God bless those Cherokee genes – he’s had skin to die for his whole life.

    I will miss “Ole Jimmy” and Rockford files is one of my favorite old shows. He was one of the oldies but goodies. I’m sad to hear he died. Another ‘end-of-an-era’. Rest In Peace! James.
