Storyline

On his way to the bank to collect a gambling debt, Bart rescues a petulant young woman from a runaway horse. On returning to the bank, Bart and the woman find that the bank president has absconded with all the money, including the money to pay Bart's debt and all of the woman's money from sale of her land. The woman hires Bart to get her to Dodge City with the promise that her fiancé will pay him when they arrive. So they set out essentially penniless for Dodge city, only to later find that they are being tracked by a ruthless bounty hunter because they are now wanted for robbing the bank and killing the bank president.

Dodge City Or Bust
9 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Bart learns a weird game of cards in Dangerfield. It is called "Jack and the Beanstalk," and fives and one-eyed jacks are wild. He rescues the unappreciative Diana, then has to get her to Dodge City. Diana is Diana Millay, a typical Maverick girl. Bart is fined for gambling on Sunday. The shows always employed humor and comedy. To me, the Maverick legacy continued in movies like Cat Ballou in 1965 and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in 1969. Traditional westerns took a beating in the 1960s. In his book about Maverick, Ed Robertson disapproved of the way Maverick's wit and humor degenerated into comedy and finally into something resembling slapstick.
