Goofs

When the stagecoach is held up (both times), the driver slams on the brakes, as it were, but the passengers, including Maverick, show no reaction. They should have been thrown forward. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bret Maverick: [narrating] I wasn't going anywhere in particular at that time, except, maybe, into bankruptcy. In the last town, I'd put all my faith into two pair, and three tiny little deuces have wrecked my faith... and my bankroll.

But when he drinks
24 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The Maverik writers really fell down with this episode. There are a few funny spots in it. But the character that William Reynolds portrays was just way too unreal.

Reynolds is a likeable young kid who just delights in doing good deeds and the town loves him. But when he gets enough booze in him he turns to robbery, egged on and supplied with drink by saloon girl Dolores Donlon.

In the meantime as the proceeds pile up Donlon plans to take it with her tinhorn gambler boyfriend John Vivyan.

A lot of people liked this one. I just found it horribly dumb.
