Bart protects a cattle drive and woos the owner of the herd.
21 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

I thought that I had seen the worst of the "Maverick" series before but that was before I saw this one. "Maverick" was undoubtedly (IMHO) the best of the TV westerns in that era and, being a teenager living out west in Wyoming at that time, I probably saw them all. Thank goodness I never saw this one or maybe it made such a bad impression that my memory rejected it. Watch it once and you'll appreciate the efforts that Roy Huggins put into the excellent "Maverick" episodes, of which there have been many. It's no wonder that James Garner (and later Jack Kelly) left for greener pastures with writing and scripting of this caliber. Watch it a second time, if you can stand it, to catch one of the young Robert Redford's first roles.
