Quotes

Bret Maverick: If her husband weren't alive... I think I'd have to consider falling in love with her. But, she's hoping he is alive, so that's your only hope, too. Whatever I feel about her doesn't matter.
Big Mike McComb: Oh fine. Well, if he ain't alive, do come to me hangin'. I'll give ya me gold watch as a weddin' present.
Bret Maverick: Well, that's a real nice thought, Mike, 'cause way down deep, I'm sentimental.

Bret the groupie
9 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Maverick story has James Garner chasing singer Peggy King like a groupie and attending all her performances the way Deadheads used to travel with The Grateful Dead and go to all of those shows. Can you blame the woman for thinking Bret Maverick is a stalker?

Of course that's not his reason. Maverick pal Big Mike McComb is in jail charged with robbing a stagecoach and killing several people. Leo Gordon recognizes the leader of the gang as King's husband reputed to have been killed in an explosion months earlier. Garner is sticking close to King on her tour and King continues to tour because she also thinks he's alive.

Peggy King sings several public domain ballads and also Some Sunday Morning which came from the Errol Flynn/Alexis Smith western San Antonio. Cost Warner Brothers nothing since they produced San Antonio.

The episode also has William Schallert as King's pianist and Sig Ruman as her concert manager. It ends on a sad and somber note as Garner has fallen for her, but she says this won't work out.

And Season 2 of Maverick also ends with this show.
