Overview

Synopsis

Although the departure of James Garner seemed to spell the doom of the long-running satirical western series Maverick at the end of its fourth season, ABC renewed the property for a fifth and final season in the fall of 1961, albeit shunted away to a less-than-desirable late Sunday afternoon timeslot. Jack Kelly soldiered on alone as frontier gambler Bart Maverick, who though he lacked Garner's deft comic touch could still be counted on to deliver the goods in the fast-action department. Only thirteen new episodes were filmed for the series' climactic season, beginning with "Dade City Dodge" and ending with "One of Our Trains is Missing"; the remainder of the season was filled out with reruns from the James Garner era. Although for the most part the final thirteen were but pale shadows of what Maverick had been in its glory days, the series managed to yield one last classic: "Three Queens Full", a riotous spoof of rival western Bonanza, with Jim Backus as millionaire rancher Jim Wheelwright, presiding not only over his vast "Subrosa" spread but also over his three rambunctious sons Henry, Moose and Small Paul! ~ Hal Erickson
