Bret is picked clean & stranded in Sunny Acres by the burg's arrogant banker, so he puts together an M Team of con artists to take down & embarrass the handle-barred buzzard in Denver, while Bret sits whittling & rocking in a chair on a shady Sunny Acres porch, poor-mouthing all by-passers that he's "just working on" a plan. The small-town banker is way out of his league in silver-rich Denver with seductive Sam Crawford, intimidating Big Mike, slicksters Gentleman Jack & Dandy Jim etc. as Maverick's operatives in this classic episode.Written by
[Bret knocks on the window of the bank]
[Bret knocks again]
I said, the bank is closed.
[Bret knocks a third time and waves his wallet]
I got something for you.
[Bates opens the door with a gun in his hand]
State your business.
I've come to put money in the bank, not take it out.

In the town of Shady Rest Bret Maverick decides to deposit $15,000.00 in poker
winnings in John Dehner's bank. But Dehner as it turns out is a crook who claims
he never got the money. Turns out he needs the money to buy out honest partner
James Garner is not going to take this lying down so he sends for brother Bart
Maverick while Garner sits whittling the hours away and telling one and all who
ask how he's going to get his money back that he's 'working on it'.
Jack Kelly in the meantime pulls together some of the best and sharpest people the brothers have run into in previous stories, Richard Long as
Gentleman Jack Darby, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., as Dandy Jim Buckley, Leo Gordon
as Big Mike McComb, and Diane Brewster as Samantha Crawford.
This group doesn't have the resources that Paul Newman and Robert Redford
did in The Sting. But it's just as neat a con.
One of the best Maverick stories.
