Storyline

Bart way-too-easily wins a bank in a poker game, because it's mysteriously missing a pile of money. The relieved loser advises Bart not to worry because "in banking, a little dignity can cover up a lot of ignorance." When the ex-owner instigates the small town's depositors into a bank run, the Sheriff (who resembles a dimwitted Marshal Matt Dillon) and his deputy (a Hoss Cartwright lookalike) can't wait to get their mitts on ignorant stranger Bart Maverick. Bart begs his gunslinging pal Doc Holiday to help him get flush any way possible, but the gallant dentist's very preoccupied when he meets a young beauty whose lonely hearts ad he answered - she's Bart's teller.

Bart Maverick: [narrating] As my pappy used to say about money, "It's always there, only the pockets change." Well, so it was with Major Sims. His money was going so fast, it didn't even have time to say goodbye to him.

Good Fun

Expertly played episode with more than its share of laughs. Bart wins a bank in a poker game. But why, we wonder, does banker Sims want to lose it. The answer involves Bart in a whole wagon-load of difficulties, more twists and turns than the proverbial stick to shake at. I get the impression the writers were also having fun taking shots at trading stamps (of all things) and highbrow Yale University.

Those boardroom sessions with roughneck Blackjack (deKova) are a real hoot. Add a terminally coy Penelope (Brand), a conniving Doc Holliday (Breck), an equally conniving banker Sims (Owen), and it's near classic Maverick, though you may need a scorecard to keep up with all the twists and turns.
