John on the Sunset Coast Obit: Actor James Garner (1928-2014) (24) RE: Obit: Actor James Garner (1928-2014) 20 Jul 14


Generally speaking, frogprince, the stars before the seventies had a long film apprenticeship, so to speak coming up through the studios, or stage, or non-public types of work, and came to stardom at a more mature age--late twenties/early thirties. Some example: Garner, Jason Robards,Jr., Clark Gable, Rock Hudson, Spencer Tracy, Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster and James Cagney. Now, many are stars barely out of their teens, and do not have the training, guidance and work ethic. Of course, there were the John Barrymores, Errol Flynns and Charlie Chaplains who were, for their period, the the bad boys...but still had long careers.
