Maverick: Shady Deal at Sunny Acres

Maverick: Shady Deal at Sunny Acres

Director: Leslie Martinson Cast: Diane Brewster, James Garner, Leo Gordon



In one of Maverick's all-time greatest episodes, Bret (James Garner) is cheated out of $15,000 by "respectable" banker John Bates (John Dehner). Since Bret is unable to reclaim the money through legal means, his brother Bart (Jack Kelly) devises an elaborate sting operation to beat Bates at his own game. Participants in this grand-scale swindle include an honor roll of the series' most popular (and sneakiest) recurring characters: Gentleman Jack Darby (Richard Long), Dandy Jim Buckley (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.), Samantha Crawford (Diane Brewster), Cindy Lou Brown (Arlene Howell) and Big Mike McComb (Leo Gordon). And what about Bret? Well, he spends virtually the entire episode sitting on a hotel porch, calmly whittling away at a block of wood...and when anybody asks what he's doing about his problem, he replies casually that he's "workin' on it."
