The old Maverick charm doesn't work
6 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Bart Maverick is in town looking to crash a poker game that only the rich and famous get into. His way in is to con wealthy widow Julie Adams and it works and you have to see what he does or rather overdoes to make her suspicious.

But he gets in and wins himself stock in a failing railroad spur line. Adding insult Julie Adams actually goes to court and puts a lien on his poker winnings. Novel, I'll admit. She really has it in for him.

Old film fans will immediately recognize footage from Saratoga Trunk used in this episode. Jack Kelly even gets to wear the same kind of stetson Gary Cooper did in that film.

Can Julie Adams hold out. Tune in and find out.
