Storyline

Mona Lisa rescues Bart from being an indentured servant, after Bart loses a high stakes poker game between nouveau riche art collectors. Oily backer Roger (Jack Cassidy) brought Bart into the game as a "Colonel," but when Bart loses, Roger denies the scheme, so Bart must work off the debt to the winner, a railroad tycoon. The other art collectors are big investors in the tycoon's latest rail project, and they are squeezing him dry, though the tycoon has a priceless ace he's reluctant to take out of the hole: he's acquired the recently-stolen Mona Lisa ! The miffed Roger's a very sore loser, so he enlists the Barbary Coast's fearsome Captain Bly versus Bart Maverick. Written by David Stevens

Trivia

About 7 minutes into the show, one of the gamblers mentions the fact that the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre 'Last year'. The only time the Mona Lisa was stolen was in 1911. The time period of the show appears to have taken place sometimes in the 1870's or 1880's. See more »

Maverick: The Art Lovers
18 May 2015 | by jcolyer1229See all my reviews

When slick Jack Cassidy reneges on his promise to back Bart in a poker game, Bart becomes a servant to pay off his debt. Tycoon Sutton faces bankruptcy but owns what he thinks is the stolen Mona Lisa. Bart discovers that an art dealer is selling fake Mona Lisas to Sutton's associates. When Cassidy tries to have Bart Shanghaied, he gets Shanghaied. No one says "Shanghaied" anymore. I suppose it would be considered politically incorrect. Maverick has been called the thinking man's western, and that is what it is. It's plots demonstrate a world-class knowledge. Sometimes the plots are so intricate that it is better to let go.
