"That Packsaddle Affair"
5 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was based on the short story "That Packsaddle Affair" by the legendary western writer Louis L'Amour. The director of the episode was Leslie H. Martinson. The teleplay was written by George Slavin. "Stage West" was later adapted to the Maverick comic book published by Dell. Quotable Maverick "Nothing's for certain, but some things I'll put money on, like a straight flush or a crooked mind." Quotable Maverick "Where money's concerned it could be dirty, dusty or soggy, just so long as it's money." Like many of the Warner Brothers television shows many actors appeared as guests before they went on to become stars. Peter Brown who plays Rip Fallon, later went on to star in Lawman and later in Laredo. Edd Byrnes of course later became famous as Kookie in the detective classic 77 Sunset Strip. Ray Teal later became Sheriff Roy Coffee on the long running western Bonanza.
