He was a major player in one of the most loved TV shows of the 1970s.
Stuart Margolin, James Garner’s sidekick “Angel” on the hit series “The Rockford Files,” has died.

Margolin also turned up in dozens of other shows and joined Garner in a program called “Bret Maverick” after the Rockford Files went off the air.
His family said the cause of death was complications of pancreatic cancer.
Stuart Margolin was 82.
