Trivia

Even though the sheriff is more supportive in this episode, Gordon Jones and Robert Lowery come together, again, as protagonists to John Wayne in McClintock; which, ironically, was also Jones final role. See more »

Foxy Smith: Well, that's it. What's the damage?
Bret Maverick: Oh, make it an even two thousand.
Foxy Smith: Fair enough. I enjoyed the action. That's strange.
Bret Maverick: What's strange?
Foxy Smith: My wallet. I'm sure I had it when I left the hotel.
Bret Maverick: I'm sure you did. Try your back pocket.
Foxy Smith: It's not there. Somebody must have clipped it. I'm sorry, but if you will give me your address...

An all star lineup
14 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Maverick story has James Garner mistaken for Robert Lowery who is a Dr. Riedenschneider like planner of old west capers. Garner is mistaken for Lowery who after losing to Garner at poker says he's broke and Garner wants that expensive diamond stickpin for collateral. He get it, but when he moves on to Denver he's mistaken for Lowery by that all star lineup of old west outlaws Lowery has gathered for an immense caper.

After this Garner is just playing for time until he can get away from this crew which includes the James Brothers, Cole Younger, Black Bart, Sam Bass, Bob Dalton and Joel Grey as Billy the Kid.

Grey and Jean Willes as Belle Starr stand out in the cast. Garner plays them both like piccolos.

Add Gordon Jones as a suspicious sheriff and you have the ingredients of a great Maverick story.
