Storyline

Abilene's marshal is bumped off and Bart kills the murderer. But instead of thanks, he's threatened with jail for vagrancy unless he becomes marshal. At least it's only a temp job, because Wyatt Earp's en route to undertake the assignment. In the meantime, Bart proposes a truce with the killer's gang, so he'll survive until Earp shows. When Earp sashays in, he forces Bart to stay on as deputy. Gambler Bart reasons "if we don't protect the lambs, who'll fleece the sheep?" Is the legendary lawman losing his nerve or what?

Trivia

Wyatt Earp is played by Med Flory, who was known for his vocal resemblance to Henry Fonda; his casting was likely a wink at "My Darling Clementine," in which Fonda played Earp. See more »

Maverick: Marshal Maverick
22 May 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

"Marshall Maverick" is the kind of comedy the series resorted to in its final shows. When the marshal is shot in the back during a poker game, the mayor forces Bart to be the marshal until Wyatt Earp arrives. Funny man John Dehner shows up impersonating Earp. He had stolen his gun! Dehner is hilarious when the outlaws try to kill him. The real Wyatt Earp appears, and Dehner comes clean. He just wanted to feel like an important man for a while. His real name is Archibald Walker, and he is "a hole in a donut." Still, he faces his tormentor in a gun fight and even gets the girl. Doc Holliday makes a cameo appearance. Holliday and Earp were friends in real life.
