rip james garner


a beloved actor....a dedicated democrat.

"on august 28, 1963, garner was one of several celebrities to join martin luther king jr. in the "march on washington for jobs and freedom." in his autobiography, garner recalled sitting in third row listening to king's "i have a dream" speech.

 for his role in the 1985 cbs miniseries space, the character's party affiliation was changed from republican as in the book to reflect Garner's personal views. garner said, "my wife would leave me if I played a republican."
