Summary, etc.:
"In The Essential James Garner, Stephen H. Ryan and Paul J. Ryan consider the prolific output of one of America's most beloved actors. This book looks at the key feature films, made-for-television movies, and television episodes of Garner's career. The authors discuss each of the actor's most well-known films,The Great Escape, The Americanization of Emily, Support Your Local Sheriff! and Murphy's Romance, among others, as well as critically acclaimed television movies including Barbarians at the Gate, Breathing Lessons, Decoration Day, Heartsounds, My Names Is Bill W., and Promise. Each entry provides details about the film production, critical reception, and commercial success. The best episodes of Garner's two iconic television, Maverick and The Rockford Files, as well as his highly regarded but little seen series Nichols are also identified. The authors make clear why these choices are indispensable viewings, not only for those already familiar with Garner, but also for those who have yet to enjoy the work of this Oscar nominee and multiple Emmy winner. A tribute to the career of a Hollywood legend, The Essential James Garner will appeal to anyone wanting to know more about the actor's best films and programs." --
