An excellent Kelly episode
18 May 2014 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

The Jack Kelly episodes have always tended to get the short shrift but this is a great example of the stylistic differences between what went to Garner and what went to Kelly. Here, as often happens to a Maverick brother, we see Bart winning a nice pot in the opening, only to lose it.

This time it comes from the hotel safe being robbed so in order to generate some cash, Bart accepts the job of body guard to the bank president played by lovely Julie Adams. She just happens to be receiving threatening notes and is the target of an errant shot from a would-be assassin. Of course, she and Bart become an item, much to the dismay of the town Mayor.

It's a good yarn with several twists, well worth seeing to catch Bart as a lover and a fighter and to appreciate Mr. Kelly's talents in both departments.
