Incognito
27 November 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Maverick episode has Jack Kelly going incognito because he's in a town where Beau recently cleaned up and Bart doesn't want another Maverick plowing the same field of suckers.

Yet it's Kelly who is conned out of Fay Spain's valuable necklace and schemes to get it back. All he gets is a trip to the pokey where he meets veteran outlaw Edgar Buchanan.

Kelly also meets his two thick as a brick sons Tom Gilson and Robert Logan. It's they who fall for the Maverick con. In fact in this somewhat muddled script acting honors go to Gilson and Logan.

Far from the best and I'm noticing a deterioration in the quality of the stories in the later years.
