Quotes

[first lines]
Bret Maverick: [narrating] The trip from Memphis to New Orleans cost forty seven dollars, if you didn't play poker. For me, the price was two thousand, three hundred and fifty eight dollars. Ah, but I wasn't discouraged when we docked at New Orleans. I still had the thousand dollar bill I kept for emergencies fastened to the lining of my coat with a safety pin. One week later, I still had the safety pin.

Everybody comes to Gerald's
29 August 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Gerald Mohr who did two appearances as Doc Holiday in the first season of Maverick is back playing a Rick Blaine type of American expatriate who runs a a Rick like gambling establishment in Tampico. He's wanted for murder in the States, murder of Louis Mercier's son a prominent Creole family in New Orleans.

James Garner gets an offer from Mercier and Paul Picerni his other son to go down to Tampico and somehow trick Mohr into leaving Tampico. Also a whole lot like trying to trick Pepe LeMoko into leaving the Casbah so he can be arrested. And like LeMoko it takes pretty singer Barbara Lang to do the job.

But that's far from all in this nice mixture of both Casablanca and Algiers woven into a Maverick episode.
