Maverick: Arizona Black Maria
24 June 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

An Indian tries to scalp Bart to prove his manhood, but Bart keeps getting rescued. Joanna Barnes is a lady prisoner. A "black maria" is a covered wagon used to transport prisoners, and Bart calls it a "traveling hoosgow" "Hoosgow" is a Mexican Spanish word for "jail." Lots of humor! Bart and Joanna kiss, and she wants Bart to help her escape. He removes her ball and chain long enough for her to bathe, and she gets away. She returns to free the others, then they all come under attack. Joanna played in 5 episodes of Maverick. The Indian's persistence in trying to scalp Bart is silly, but it comes to a head when he tries to scalp a sleeping man and the man is wearing a toupee.
