TCM clears its previous film schedule today to present a dozen movies featuring the late James Garner. The tribute begins early, at 6 a.m. ET, with 1956’s Toward the Unknown, one of the Wartner Bros. studio movies he made as a supporting player before breaking out as a star, for the studio’s newly formed TV division, in the classic Western Maverick. Shoot-Out at Medicine Bend, made in 1957, follows at 8 a.m. ET, and the first real Garner starring vehicle of the day begins at 9:30 a.m. ET, with him driving a vehicle in 1966’s Grand Prix (pictured). Among the rest of the day’s Garner films are these especially worthy examples: 1966’s Mister Buddwing, co-starring Jean Simmons, Suzanne Pleshette and a pre-Graduate Katharine Ross, at 6:15 p.m. ET; 1964’s The Americanization of Emily, co-starring Julie Andrews, at 10 p.m. ET; and his version of Marlowe, from 1969, at 4:30 a.m. ET.
