After getting off a stage and checking into a hotel room, Bart is tricked into slipping out of his room just long enough for the suitcase he is carrying with $2,600 to be stolen. Looking for the men on the stage who knew he was carrying the money, he finds one of them dead and another has left the hotel. But then another, a town judge, returns Bart's suitcase with the money intact. The suitcase Bart left the stage with was the judge's identical looking one which held a valuable document in it that many believe Bart has hidden, and are willing to kill for. Written by
It is the 4th of July, 1876, and the United States is celebrating 100 years of freedom. North Dakota is not named as the 39th state nor is the territorial capital of Yankton. Bart is "just passing through" and mentions that he is from east Texas. He is on his way to a poker game in Denver. Denver is the hub of the entire series. Jack Kelly was a great actor, every bit as good as James Garner and probably better when it came to dramatic roles. Ed Robertson, in his book, "Maverick: Legend Of The West," suggests Garner got the big movie career because of personality. Kelly got into real estate and local politics and died in 1992. Even though Marion Hargrove wrote The 39th Star, it is boring and confusing.
