Maverick: The Day They Hanged Bret Maverick
27 June 2015 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

His stone reads: "Bret Maverick, Born April 7, 1847." April 7 was James Garner's birthday. Of course, Bret is not hanged. Crooked sheriff Ray Teal comes up with a plan to fake a hanging because he wants the money Bret was falsely accused of stealing. It begins with Wells Fargo being robbed and the robber framing Bret. Bret plays on the sheriff's greed to cheat the hangman. A similar scene occurred in Cat Ballou to save Jane Fonda. Whitney Blake shows up posing as Bret's widow, and Bret is enamored. El Paso can wait! Bret kills Whitney's husband, and the sheriff goes to jail. Bret's stone says he died, September 21, 1876, the date this episode aired in 1958.
