“With A Smile”

A genuine man left us. James Garner.

When he was asked by Barbara Walters how he would like to be remembered, he answered “With a smile”.

Just a mensch that made it a pleasure to be on the set for 12-16 hours a day. I heard it  from a 1st AD who was there, on his TV show and all the TV movies (more or less) he later made.

And now I found this:

From that experience, Garner developed a lifelong sympathy for the underdog. “I cannot stand to see little people picked on by big people,” he said. “If a director starts abusing people, I’ll just jump in.”



As I said, we will miss him dearly, in this industry that ‘throwing people under the bus’ is an every day occurrence.
