Synopsis. A research librarian for a historical society coerces Maverick into signing a contract that grants her organization exclusive rights to produce goods that bear our hero’s likeness.  

The third of three attempts to revive Maverick in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Bret Maverick (NBC, 1981-1982) saw James Garner reprise the role that originally made him a star. This episode features Neva Patterson, Garner’s co-star in Nichols (NBC, 1971-1972), the short-lived turn-of-the-nineteenth-century Western that Garner also produced for Warner Bros. Television.

LEARN MORE about this episode in the revised third edition of Maverick: Legend of the West, featuring more than 100 pages of new information about the show that made James Garner a star. 25 percent of the net proceeds from the sales of the third edition will be donated to The James Garner Animal Rescue Fund, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds to help rescue organizations, shelters, individuals, fosters, and veterans with emergencies, evacuations, medical care, adoptions, training, pet supplies, shelter, rehabilitation, boarding, transportation, food, and other pressing needs. JGARF is one way for Garner fans to honor Jim’s memory and extend his legacy. The revised third edition of Maverick: Legend of the West is available both in softcover and, very soon, as an eBook through Black Pawn Press, Amazon.com, and wherever books are sold online.
