Actor James Garner passed on July 19, 2014 at the age of 86. When I jump on IMDb, he is accredited with an incredible 95 movies; which includes roles as an actor and voice. As the writers at LTBM discussed Mr. Garner’s passing, it quickly became apparent that I had the most knowledge about and experience with his movies. (Another reflection of my age.) Having gone through the list, I have seen a little over 75% of the things that Mr. Garner has been in. It is my pleasure to offer the following as a small glimpse into the movie life of Mr. James Garner as I touch on some of the more prominent roles that I have enjoyed.

Draft Day Release Date April 11, 2014
That’s right, faithful readers,Draft Day!
Thanks to a good friend of mine (fellow blogger for LTBM, Gene) my lovely wife and I were able to catch a special early screening of DRAFT DAY.
Kevin Costner makes it back to the big screen, after what seems like a long drought, for what is being predicted to be a pretty big hit among sports fans. He plays Sonny Weaver Jr, the General Manager for the Cleveland Browns. (Yes, the Browns.) I loved the opening of the movie. A radio DJ is heard talking on the morning of the NFL Draft Day about how the city is full of dedicated and loyal sports fans though their franchises have not done much of anything good for decades. He then addresses Sonny and he tells him to do something for these fans who have suffered this lack-of-successful-sport-team drought.
