Complicated comedy of errors
5 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Roger Moore who later joined the cast as English cousin Beau Maverick plays an American millionaire, the wastrel son of Neil Hamilton. Hamilton has lost patience with Moore whom he wants to just grow up and settle down. Actually Moore has someone in mind, Patricia Crowley who has some silly romantic notions about marry a poor, but honest yeoman. She's got a few shekels herself.

On the train to Denver he arranges for James Garner to exchange identities with him so that Maverick can get into an exclusive Denver hotel only open to the filthy rich where there's a high stakes poker game.

No more to be said in this complicated comedy of errors. The laughs come pretty good. Wait till you see poor Bret Maverick's payoff in the end.
