9/10 and I think this quiz has made a very important discovery...James Garner is quite possibly the only working actor from the fifties, sixties and seventies who DIDN'T appear on an episode of Gunsmoke!

9 out of 10...I never knew he was considered for the lead role in Cheyenne.

Regarding #1: Someone suggested to Jack Warner that he take a look at this young actor who had a lead role on stage in The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial. Warner was indeed impressed and asked the person he was with for that actor's name. When told his name was James Bumgarner, Warner showed his classic sense of humor when he responded, "Take the 'bum' out and give him a seven-year contract!".

Wish they had kept Nichols on longer. Maybe it was a victim of the "rural purge"?

I think my favorite Garner role is probably Jim Rockford, with his performance in the Support Your Local Sheriff movie as a close second. :)

6, not bad, not good. I always liked Garner, from the first time I watched Maverick when I was a kid. His performance in Murphy's Romance, but my favorite of his will always be Grand Prix.
