A fine actor and a classy man. That’s the way Andrea King remembered him.
“And so handsome!” she was quick to add.
Andrea had the pleasure of working with James on “Maverick” in an episode entitled “Two Tickets to Ten Strike,” and they both appeared in the feature film “Darby’s Rangers” from Warner Bros. This was one of his first leading roles on the big screen, and although they shared no scenes together, Andrea visited with him at length while on the set. He was a bit nervous about the project, but very excited, too.
Turner Classic Movies will be airing a day-long tribute to James Garner, including the film “Darby’s Rangers” with Andrea King.
