Fun Episode for Any Fan of the "Maverick" television Series
31 October 2015 | by (Orlando, United States) – See all my reviews

Jack Kelly plays a modern version of his Bart Maverick character. He is as whimsical, witty, romantic here as he was on "Maverick." He is also a professional gambler, or a "player" as he calls it, as he was on "Maverick." This actually could have been a Maverick script. Pat Hingle plays a wealthy man obsessed with breaking the bank at a casino. He sees Kelly gambling and decides that he is the man he needs to do the job. Both Hingle and Kelly do some great acting under Sidney Pollack's superb direction. Somebody mentioned the "Star Trek" connection with three future "Star Trek" actresses playing here. Of the three Nancy Kovack is really the star here, playing the love interest of Jack Kelly, as she was the love interest of William Shatner in her Star Trek episode. I would like to mention a "Batman" connection. Jack Kelly played in a couple of episodes of the 60's television series and Pat Hingle played Commissioner Gordon in the first three "Batman" movies. Thus, if you are a "Maverick," "Star Trek" or "Batman" fan, you should enjoy this episode.
