RIP James Garner

Many an hour were spent watching James Garner in Maverick and The Rockford Files (his gold Pontiac Firebird was a welcome bonus), but I remember him best for Flight Lieutenant Bob Hendley DFC RAF aka 'The Scrounger' in The Great Escape and as Pete Aron in Grand Prix.
That film inspired him to take a further interest in motorsport, becoming part-owner of the American International Racers team from 1967 to 1969, which inspired the 1970 documentary The Racing Scene.
