James Garner on Pioneers of Television: Westerns

During one of my semi-regular YouTube searches for new James Garner or Robert Culp content (hey c’mon – back in the 60s and 70s people got these guys on the TV regularly, a fan in 2011 isn’t so lucky) I found this excerpt from a recent US documentary, Pioneers of Television: Westerns.

It features Maverick and Jim Garner in equal measure, with a new Garner interview that I suspect was filmed in the last year or so. It’s great to see him again as he doesn’t do too many of these things nowadays: I’m still hoping we get a new Maverick TV show with a handover from Jimbo in the pilot…

There’s also a clip on there featuring Garner and The Rockford Files. Both clips feature the late, great, Stephen J Cannell:

    This interview was done in Feb. 2010, so it is quite recent. You will be glad to know that Jim is in good health and is working on his memoirs – if you can believe it! There is a fan page for him on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Official-James-Garner-Fan-Page/137716439595713 It is quite active and interesting.

    I also have a blog about him called The Quintessential American at http://garnerphile.blogspot.com/

    Excellent post!
