James Garner–Maverick

What a night! The room was filled to capacity, at least 300 hundred cowboys and cowgirls, all duded up in their Western finest.I attended the ceremonies with Elaine Palance, who accepted the award for her husband, Jack. Elaine gave a great speech which got everybody laughing. She’s a natural, shouda been an actress herself.

We were seated at one of the head tables. I was surrounded by some of Hollywood’s top stars. At the table on my right sat Morgan Woodward, a really tall and striking Texan and a couple of seats past him was James Garner.

Garner will always be Maverick, that fast-talking, quick-drawin’ gambler. His most recent role was in the “The Notebook.” What a tear-jerker that was! He got a giggle from the audience when he announced that he’d just gotten another job! As if we thought he wouldn’t.

Stay tuned, more pictures to come………………………….
