Maverick: Pappy
13 June 2015 | by jcolyer1229See all my reviews

This kicked off the third season. I found it entertaining even if it did diminish the pappy mystique. It is Troy Donahue who informs the Maverick brothers that their pappy is about to marry an 18-year-old. Kaye Elhardt is Josephine. James Garner plays pappy, and Jack Kelly shows up as Uncle Bentley. "Pappy" opens with Bret's 3 treys winning at poker. Bart, in jail, beats the sheriff with the same hand. The brothers reluctantly head for Texas to check on their reprobate father, and Bret visits the Lady Gida Show Boat. Gida wants pappy and resents the 18-year-old. Bart is hired to kill his own father in a duel as the plot thickens. Duels were fought near oak trees in the south. There is little trust between characters in the Maverick series.
