Synopsis

The first six episodes seen during the inaugural season of Maverick features James Garner alone as travelling frontier gambler Bret Maverick, who hasn't quite developed into the delightfully duplicitious and self-protective character he was to become. In Episode Seven, Jack Kelly joins the cast as Bret's brother Bart Maverick, also a gambler. At this point, the contrast between the flippant Bret and the sobersided Bart was played for all it was worth, with Bret handling the more lighthearted episodes and Bart headlining those episodes in which action and adventure carried the day. By mid-season, the series' writers are capitalizing on Garner's deft comic touch, including such stage directions in their scripts as "Bret narrows his beady little eyes" and emphasizing the more "cowardly" aspects of his character, such as trying to make a quick exit from town whenever challenged to a gunfight--or even closing his eyes in agony while branding a calf! Many observers trace the series tongue-in-cheek ambience to its third episode, "According to Hoyle", which introduces Diane Brewster in the recurring role of glamorous con artist Samantha Crawford--a marked contrast to the simpering ingenues who usually showed up in TV westerns, and a worthy adversary (and sometimes lover) for the cagey Bret Maverick. Also introduced during Season One is another of the Maverick brothers' recurring nemeses, the larcenous Dandy Jim Buckley, played con brio by a pre-77 Sunset Strip Efrem Zimbalist Jr.; Dandy Jim makes his inaugural appearance in the episode "Stampede". Other noteworthy first-season Maverick guest stars include future Mannix leading man Mike Connors in "Point Blank" and "The Naked Gallows"; Werner Klemperer, aka Hogan's Heroes' Colonel Klink, in "Comstock Conspiracy", Edd Byrnes, not yet 77 Sunset Strip's inimitable "Kookie", in "Ghost Rider" and "Stage West"; and the versatile Hans Conried, rather surprisingly playing it straight (that is, avoiding his usual Shakespearean flamboyance) in "Black Fire". Although Maverick did not crack the "top thirty" television shows during its first season, its loyal fan base was rapidly accumulating thanks to word of mouth. ~ Hal Erickson
