For Jim Garner, the stakes were big: if he lost, he’d lose his career. He was riding high as TV’s “Maverick!” But when a strike cut off his salary and his studio refused to let him accept other offers, it became a real-life gamble. He rolled the dice and became the first actor to sue his studio-and win. At first, the wanted roles still didn’t come, but now with “Thrill of It All” and “Great Escape” he’s riding high again!
