A gambler's lot is not a happy one
14 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Bart Maverick manages to make himself very unpopular with the law in three different neighboring towns in this story. Jack Kelly manages to get himself robbed in one town by pretty Pat Crowley. Kelly's poker winnings in that town were what she took, but since it was the mayor Kelly cleaned out, he's the one who is asked to leave.

City number two is the town of Brotherly where an ironfisted duty bound sheriff enforces the law or at least his hidebound view of it. Because in city number 3 run by Ed Kemmer it's an open town except when Kemmer loses.

I won't go any further as this does all get a bit confusing. Ben Gage who was at one time married to Esther Williams is outstanding as the rigid hidebound sheriff of Brotherly.

In the end it all works out though Kemmer feels taken even though he does get what's owed him.
