Trivia

The "Wilhelm Scream" is heard as Gilespie McKensie goes overboard near the end of the story. The "Wilhelm Scream" was a stock sound effect used hundreds of times. It was attributed to Sheb Wooley. The sound effect was named for his character Pvt. Wilhelm, in the 1953 western "The at Feather River", even though it was first heard in 1951 in the movie "Distant Drums". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bret Maverick: [narrating] Toward the end of the summer, I had pretty well exhausted the possibilities of the poker tables at Kansas City... and they had exhausted me. They had exhausted me to the point where I was traveling to St. Louis with all my worldly possessions... in the shape of a thousand dollar bill pinned inside my coat.

Maverick: Cruise Of The Cynthia B.
13 June 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

"Cruise Of The Cynthia B." is patterned after an Agatha Christie story. Bret is one of seven owners of a riverboat. When they take it down the Mississippi to Memphis to sell it, the owners meet mysterious deaths. Mona Freeman is featured as Modesty Blaine. Modesty was ruthless in "The Cats Of Parasise," so when the ratings dropped the next week, her character was cleaned up. Bret is reacquainted with Modesty when she becomes the seventh sucker to purchase the Cynthis B. Bret asks Modesty if she is out on parole and insults her cooking before easing up on her. They kiss as the suspense grows. The killer is the man who sold them the boat. Pappyism: "A man does what he has to do -- if he can't get out of it."
