Storyline

Fleeing sore losers, Bret is saved from death by stage robber Lefty Dolan who obligates Bret with a dying wish - free the man wrongly convicted in another heist, instead of Lefty. Lefty lives long enough to clue in Bret to a bank robbery he and three others were involved in when the mistaken identity occurred. When Bret goes to the prison to talk to the innocent prisoner Jedd, Bret is pledged to an even stranger promise - don't tell Jedd's wife there's any hope of saving him. Citizen Kane-style cinematography, in the first of many Maverick episodes directed or written by Doug Heyes. Written by David Stevens
