Nothing Special
23 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

A complex plot done in straight dramatic style with little trademark Maverick humor. Crooked sheriff of Hollow Rock (Griffin) blackjacks Bret out of poker winnings after Bret has exposed stacked poker set-up the sheriff was part of. Now Bret wants his money back, but how to do that when the thief is also the law. But then, Bret is nothing if not clever as the episode builds up to the big 4th of July horse race.

It's a convoluted plot involving many elements that work better as parts than as a rather murky whole. It's not classic Maverick. Still, Reynolds does well as the likable young guy, while old pro Meyer shines as the roughneck Colonel. But perhaps the most interesting feature is Saundra Edwards as the Colonel's daughter. She's almost breath-takingly gorgeous in her high fashion get-up, so it doesn't much matter that her acting talent is limited, to say the least. But check out her bio—it's surprising and, shows why you've probably never heard of her.

(In passing—that's former cowboy star Bob Steele in the cell next to Bret. He's got about 10-seconds of screen time and one line of dialog. I hope he got a good paycheck.)
