    Wanted to vote for Hour of the Gun but The Great Escape is such a superior overall film that had to go with it anyway, even though his was a good role in both movies, as my first choice!

      You’re supposed to be voting on James Garner’s performance, not the quality of the film.

    36 Hours.How did they leave that out?Classic WW2 film.

    • Mark Malak

      I’m with you on 36 Hours.This outstanding picture is often overlooked for some reason,can’ even imagine why.Certainly my favorite Garner picture.

    James Garner was one of the few who could handle both comedy and serious acting. He was and is superb.

  • Cara

    I love The Americanization of Emily, and the chemistry between Julie Andrews and Garner was palpable. This was a message movie, and the screen writer went a bit Paddy Chayefsky giving Garner a number of long ‘speeches.’ A lesser actor couldn’t have pulled them off, but Garner did beautifully.

  • Nostromo

    His Wyatt Earp was such a pleasant fellow. It was great seeing him working with Jason Robards.

    THE GREAT ESCAPE….hands down…..Classic James Garner!!! You have Steve McQueen,Charles Bronson and James Coburn in one of the greatest World War II adventure movies ever made!

    I started to say something about Darby’s Rangers but I’m not sure if it was made in the 50′s or the 60′s
