Not too bad...but not that good.
17 August 2005 | by (southwestern Arizona) – See all my reviews

Charles Frank, who plays the "new Maverick" rides into town. He's a young dashing man just like his two uncles. The three set out to capture the train robbers and return the gold for the reward. Garner, of course, always does a great job as Bret Maverick and when one thinks of "Maverick" they think of James Garner. Jack Kelly is back as his brother Bart and again does another good job. Susaan Blanchard plays the young love object in the movie and she is definitely a pretty woman which any young man would enjoy courting with the one exception of a "fiesty tongue." Which appeals to the new Maverick and he never lets it get him down as he goes after her. One of the funniest, in my view, scenes is when Bret Maverick has to borrow some money so he can play Poker Alice (played by a charming and beautiful Susan Sullivan). Imagine a professional gambler having to borrow money to play a hand...LOL Anyway, I would watch the movie again and would recommend it to those who for years enjoyed Maverick.
