Dandy Jim convinces Bret to partner with him to buy horses for cavalry remounts and Bret learns too late it's just another of Jim's swindles. Worse, Jim steals all Bret's money and leaves him tied up in the wilderness. Bret soon tracks Dandy Jim to a Wyoming town with a long memory - when a notorious outlaw broke out of jail eight years earlier, the town fathers determined to build an escape-proof jail. Now Dandy Jim's behind bars for a crime he didn't commit - for a change - and he refuses to tell Bret where he's hid the money he stole from the gambler unless he breaks him out of jail. Time's short because a lynch mob is beginning to form. Written by
Dandy Jim Buckley comes up with a scheme to buy and sell horses after gold is supposedly found. Of course, there is no gold. Nor are there cars or planes in Maverick, but there sure are lots of horses. Bret says, "I love money, but I hate jail!" Both Bret and Buckley spend time in the jail at Junction Flats. Nearly episode centers around money. Crooks swindle the Mavericks, and they try to recoup their losses. Twists and turns are endless, and the writing is brilliant. Buckley is played by Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. He was great at tongue-in-cheek comedy and was sorely missed when he left the show. The Buckley character was Maverick without a conscience.
