Maverick men are suckers for female con artists
6 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In the tradition of Diane Brewster as Samantha Crawford, Paticia Breslin cons Bart Maverick into holding two men whom she claims are wanted for the sheriff who is with a posse chasing robbers. She promises $300.00 and then skips out leaving a much embarassed Jack Kelly.

Breslin is on her way to head up a cattle drive where she and others have pooled their resources. When Kelly arrives it's clear that he knows more about cattle herding than the rest put together so he gets the job of trail boss.

But that leads to more problems because on the drive a few of the men are knifed to death. It would make the pot at the end give bigger shares to the survivors.

I'll say no more, but Peter Miles is cast in a role that was truly rare back in those days of television.

Hope I've stimulated your curiousity.
