James Garner Movies You Need To See

James Garner has died. The 86-year-old passed away on Saturday. Law enforcement told TMZ that the veteran actor – who died of natural causes – was already gone when the ambulance arrived on the scene Saturday evening.

He had a long career, including some movies that have been pushed to the way side. Until now.

Garner was one of the first actors to be successful on both film and TV. He’s best known for his work on the 70s drama, “The Rockford Files.” He also appeared in “Maverick,” On the film front, he was nominated for an Academy Award for his work in “Murphy’s Romance,” and in “The Notebook” as the older version of Ryan Gosling’s characters.

Here’s a quick list of James Garner movies you need to see if you get a chance.



The Great Escape



A 1963 classic that had a phenomenal cast that included Garner and Steve McQueen. The movie was about a group of soldiers from different countries that band together to plot their way out of a German stalag.



Grand Prix



A ’60s look at Formula One racing and the jet-set lifestyle that followed it. The movie was a box office smash, but is more well know for its cutting edge cinematography.



Murphy’s Romance



A goofy 1985 rom-com that also starred Sally Field and the hot kid of the year, the late Corey Haim.







A listener turned me on to this film, which stars Garner as a retired Army General who defends a young lady’s honor, mainly by using an old Sherman tank he owns.
