I was quite sad about James Garner’s passing, and because he’s an actor I enjoy (I think his work in various types of comedies, whether romantic, western, or drama, speaks for itself), so a dedication him on the blog seemed appropriate. I write mostly about horror, sci-fi, erotica, and cult, but I also have quite a fondness for westerns. One of my favorite roles portrayed by Garner was his intense, gritty Wyatt Earp in Hour of the Gun, quite a different type of character and performance than what you would see in his “Support Your Local…” western comedies. While I did think Robert Ryan was wasted in Hour of the Gun, seeing Garner in a part that required this serious, brooding side rarely seen by him—unlike his charmer television classic characters in the likes of Maverick & The Rockford Files—was neat. I have a second western I’ve never seen I will be reviewing for the blog called A Man Called Sledge I’m looking forward to. I’m even planning to review television episodes of The Rockford Files for the blog. It’s the least I can do to honor Garner in memoriam. His kind of actor is someone I always enjoyed watching in films. He was fun. We still have his resume—an extensive one with lots of roles yet discovered. He seemed to play off any actress with ease and great timing, too. There was even a cult film or two…try They Only Kill Their Masters if you can find it.

Doctor Gogol: Did you ever hear of Galatea?
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: Gala - who? Not wanting a statue of him, are you?
Doctor Gogol: I don't want a statue of Galatea. You see, she was a statue herself. Pygmalion formed her. Out of marble, not wax. And then she came to life in his arms.
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [calling to his assistant] Start the motor, Henry. There's queer people on the streets of Montmartre at this time of night.
Doctor Gogol: [handing him his card] Here, a hundred francs if you deliver the statue to my house.
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [reading card] It's a go, Dr. Go... gol. First thing in the morning.
