James Garner RIP

The original Maverick is gone :( The Scrounger too....Legendarul actor american James Garner (Marea Evadare, Grand Prix, Marlowe, Support Your Local Sheriff! & Support Your Local Gunfighter, Tancul, Space Cowboys, serialele Maverick, The Rockford Files),a murit pe 19 iulie la Los Angeles. Avea 86 de ani. Considerat un exponent al "actoriei invizibile", old-school Hollywood. In 1973 John Wayne l-a numit "cel mai bun actor din Hollywood".
Star de cinema in anii 60, apoi star TV in anii 70 si 80. Pilot de formula unu, veteren de razboi, calaret de mare clasa. L-a jucat pe Wyatt Earp de 2 ori, in Hour of the Gun (John Sturges, 1967) si Sunset (Blake Edwards, 1988), in care Bruce Willis este Tom Mix. Tot pentru Blake Edwards a facut un rol superb in Victor/Victoria (1982). Nominalizare la Oscar pentru Murphy's Romance al lui Martin Ritt (1985), alaturi de Sally Field. Preferatul meu cultissim, 36 Hours (1965, thriller de George Seaton). O sa dau in memoriam Garner la Cinemateca Patria, in luna august, filmul sau din 1984, Tancul /Tank.
Tribut din The Guardian

si twitter de catre toti cei din Hollywood aici: "Tip of the hat to James Garner. Charm, humor, but most of all - class." (-Bruce Campbell
"I have long thought Jim Garner was one of the best actors around. He is often overlooked because he makes it so easy, and that is not easy to do. I don't know anyone in the business with his charm and charisma who can act so well.”
Robert Altman in 1979.

"Garner opened the door for people like Steve McQueen and myself”.
Clint Eastwood

"I’m a Spencer Tracy-type actor. His idea was to be on time, know your words, hit your marks and tell the truth."
James Garner: 1928-2014

Hunter Of Invisible Game - Bruce Springsteen -SOTD & Video

"Hunter Of Invisible Game" -A short film by Thom Zimny and Bruce Springsteen.
"I wrote [the title] down years ago, and I don't remember a lot about it except I said, 'That's a nice title.' I wrote it down and it sat there. Then I did more reading of other things. And I started to get into this sort of post-apocalyptic idea. The idea of these travellers in the wasteland, and what's the guy trying to do? He's trying to hold onto their humanness, their humanity in all of this ruin. That was the idea. That's who this guy is, the guy who is hunting out remnants of what makes the spirit. It was one of those songs that came together a certain way and I didn't think much about it when I wrote it. I put it away. Now it's probably one of my favorite things on the record."

Bruce Springsteen in Rolling Stone

Debutul lui The Boss in regie, un video-clip post apocaliptic de 10 min. reminiscent de The Road, The Postman, piesa de pe albumul HIGH HOPES, unul din putinele preferate de mine anul acesta. I relate too.

"Hunter Of Invisible Game"

I hauled myself up out of the ditch
And built me an ark of gopher wood and pitch
Sat down by the roadside and waited on the rain
I am the hunter of invisible game

Well I awoke last night to the heavy clickin' and clack
And a scarecrow on fire 'long the railroad tracks
There were empty cities and burnin' plains
I am the hunter of invisible game

We all come up a little short and we go down hard
These days I spend my time skipping through the dark
Through the empires of dust, I chant your name
I am the hunter of invisible game

Through the bone yard rattle and black smoke, we rolled on
Down into the valley, where the beast has his throne
There I sing my song and I sharpen my blade
I am the hunter of invisible game

Strength is vanity and time is illusion
I feel you breathin', the rest is confusion
Your skin touches mine, what else to explain
I am the hunter of invisible game

Now pray for yourself that you may not fall
When the hour of deliverance comes on us all
When our hope and faith and courage and trust
Can rise or vanish like dust into dust
There's a kingdom of love waiting to be reclaimed
I am the hunter of invisible game

I am the hunter of invisible game
I am the hunter of invisible game
