A fine Maverick episode
25 July 2008 | by (Calgary AB Canada) – See all my reviews

Hadley's Hunters is a feast of nostalgia today while it was an exciting fun-fest back in 1960. Bart is penniless in a town dominated by Sheriff Hadley and his gang. He embarks on a quest to capture an outlaw and it is in this action that he runs into Dan Troop and his deputy from "Lawman", Tom Brewster the "Sugarfoot" ("Tenderfoot" in Britain), Bronco Lane from his eponymous series, and barely misses Cheyenne Bodie. Each of these is from another Warner Bros. Western. A tearful moment is skilfully created when Bart finds the distinctive gear of the already cancelled "Colt .45". The outlaw is played by the actor who would very briefly play yet another Maverick relative in the dying weeks of the series. In the midst of all this, the story is also very good. Jack Kelly has always been considered a poor shadow of James Garner in this series but in watching a number of episodes lately I find myself enjoying his portrayal of Bart even more than I did when the series was first broadcast. Bart is different and has a different flavour but he is still very much a Maverick, as this episode proves.
