Storyline

A fellow's got to kill the fellow who kills a fellow's brother. At least, that's the Code of the West. At first mistaken for the fellow who killed a fellow's brother, Bret sends the brother off in search of brother Bart as the alleged killer. When word comes back that Bart has been killed, the locals expect Bret to seek his own revenge. But Bret seems nonchalant about the news and has other plans. If only the idolizing Smoky would stay out of the way. Written by graymatters

Quotes

[first lines]
[When Smoky enters town, his horse steps in a mud puddle and splashes George Arnett by accident]
Smoky Vaughn: Well, I'm sorry, mister, I didn't mean to splash ya.
George Henry Arnett: Can you see that puddle?
Smoky Vaughn: I thought-I'm sorry, now lay off.
George Henry Arnett: Not so fast, sonny. Seems like you need to be taught a lesson. Like... for instance, there's a puddle in the street... which you don't know. Well, maybe this will help you find out where it is.

A Fellow's Brother
12 February 2016 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

"When a fellow's brother's killed, it's up to the fellow's brother to get the fellow who killed the fellow's brother." "I've heard that!" replies Bret. The plot is familiar. Bret needs a stake to get into a poker game and sets out to collect gambling debts. There is a bank robbery and a murder, and he is accused of both. Diane McBain is Polly. She achieved fame as the sexpot in 1961's Claudelle Inglish. It is significant that a western about two poker playing drifters could run for 5 years and win an Emmy in an era of law and order westerns. But Maverick did it because of the charm and personalities of James Garner and Jack Kelly.
