    @optio4 Now I saw her!

    @cwazny1 I was refering to the girl in the second commercial….according to IMDb’s website Kim Richards appeared in a 1982 Polaroid ad with Garner. Also Garner was very loyal to his colleagues in show business….many of his guest stars on Maverick later on showed up on the Rockford Files twenty years later. I’m not sure of the name of the girl in the first commercial.

    @optio4 That wasn’t Kim Richards. She was born in 1964. So, she would have been 18 in this commercial. I don’t think that girl was 18.

    Didn’t realize that was Kim Richards…..she guest starred in a third season episode of the Rockford Files titled “The Family Hour”

    “He played football?”
    “Well, he used to be a lot taller”
    Funny reference. Garner, a big football fan, says he used to be 6″3′ but never looked it alongside other tall actors. He’s now around 5″11′ and he says he’s shrunk a few inches.

    Yay, James Garner!

    I totally doubt it. Jodie Sweetin was either a baby or not even born yet when this ad was made. Though she kinda looks like her a bit…

    Is the girl in the first ad actress Jody Swentin (SP?) from Full House?
