- GHOST RIDER
Original Airdate: October 13, 1957
Synopsis. Maverick has a bad day in the town of White Rock. First, he’s robbed of $3,000 by a young punk known as “The Kid” (played by Edd Byrnes). Then he discovers that The Kid not only lost all of his money playing poker, but was shot and killed for cheating. Then Bret loses his coat (containing the $1,000 bill he keeps for emergencies) after helping out a red-haired woman who, according to the townsfolk, died ten days earlier. When Maverick returns to town, he’s nearly shot to death by the undertaker. When the undertaker, a very popular man in town, is later gunned down by a man named Foster (who matches Bret’s general physical appearance), Maverick becomes the likely suspect.
