Actor James Garner died Saturday (July 19) at his home in California. He was 86.

Best known for his television roles in "Maverick" and "The Rockford Files," and in the 1963 film "The Great Escape," he portrayed Senator Norman Grant in the 1985 small screen adaptation of James Michener's "SPACE" and astronaut Tank Sullivan in 2000's "Space Cowboys."

You may remember that one of his first roles was as a young test pilot at Edwards AFB in "Towards the Unknown" opposite William Holden.

He never flew the X-2 in that film, but he died testing the "Gilbert XF-120" (the Martin XB-51 bomber).

Back in the early 1960s my family would watch "Maverick" one night and then the next week it would be "Sugarfoot" on the same channel; the following week it was "Cheyenne," and finally "Bronco." Then the order would be repeated, so once a month I used to love watching James Garner and Jack Kelly as the rascally Maverick brothers - certainly my favourite of those four cowboy shows. James Garner was the consummate actor and created a truly unforgettable character (as he later did with Jim Rockford). I never took to the later "substitute" Mavericks such as Brent (Robert Colbert) and Beau (Roger Moore). And who can ever forget Garner in "Space Cowboys" - still for me playing Bret Maverick, but in a different outfit.
