Storyline

Bret Maverick is on his way to a high stakes poker game, when an injured friend with a hidden agenda, begs him to visit. After Bret arrives, the friend's beautiful daughter draws Bret into a plot of her own. Both plots revolve around cold-blooded Red Hardigan (a lanky, young Clint Eastwood). Red demands Bret leave Sundown immediately - or rest in Sundown forever. Written by David Stevens

Two legends
5 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Film legends James Garner and Clint Eastwood worked together for the first time in this Maverick story. It would be 40 years before they would be together again, this time on the big screen in Space Cowboys.

James Garner while visiting Edgar Buchanan at his ranch gets caught up in the wily old codger's machinations. Buchanan starts pushing him toward daughter Abby Dalton because he doesn't like the fact she's seeing young Clint Eastwood.

Eastwood is a bully and a lout, unfortunately he's also a fast gun and he's the jealous type. Maverick has to use his own wily brain to avoid a shootout with him.

This is a different kind of role than what you normally might see from Clint Eastwood on the big screen. He handles it well.

And the episode itself is small and big screen history.
