Introduces brother Bart (Jack Kelly) teaming with Bret to board a riverboat's maiden voyage, sold out to Creole aristocrats with gambling fever. To crash the private cruise, the Mavericks introduce themselves to the ship's French owner, whose lovely daughter, Yvette, is shanghaied right after the Mavericks are rebuffed. The brothers pursue the kidnappers, hoping to free the jeune fille, get an invitation, and a reward. At the New Orleans cabaret where the Mavericks meet Yvette, pop singer Don Durant ("Johnny Ringo") croons "Get Along Home Cindy" to her. Durant was a runner-up for the role of Bart.

Maverick: Hostage
29 June 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

"Hostage" brought brother Bart into the series. My first impression of Bart is that he looks young. He and Bret meet in New Orleans, and they are broke. Bret has an idea, to play poker on the River Princess with Creoles. They meet Henri Devereax, the boat owner, to try to gain passage. Henri is arrogant and protective of his daughter Yvette. Yvette thinks she is being whisked away to her lover, Jody. In fact, Jody kidnaps her and holds her for ransom. Bret and Bart pretend to join the kidnappers, and when the bad guys turn on each other, Yvette gets free. Henri learns humility, and the brothers do well at poker. Bringing Jack Kelly into the series made it better.
