Watch Bret Maverick


James Garner reprised the role that made him a star, Old West gambler Bret Maverick, in this revival series that aired on NBC during the 1981-82 TV season. The storyline concerned Maverick giving up his days of wandering and attempting to settle down and lead a quiet life as a rancher in the town of Sweetwater located in the Arizona Territory. Though Maverick wanted to lead a quiet life something always seemed to get in his way as he tried to adjust to the changing times and get along with his fellow townspeople which included his business partner, former lawman Tom Guthrie (Ed Bruce), spunky female newspaper editor Mary Lou Springer (Darleen Carr), salty ranch foreman Cy Whittaker (Richard Hamilton), banker Elijah Crow (Ramon Bieri), newly elected sheriff Mitchell Dowd (John Shearin), and a sleazy half-breed con man named Philo Sandine (Stuart Margolin).
