- FLOOD’S FOLLY
Original Airdate: February 19, 1961
Synopsis. Near Denver, Colorado, Beau and his friend Judge John Scott find shelter from a blizzard in the home of widow Martha Flood and her niece Sally. Maverick soon discovers that Martha and the judge are plotting to institutionalize Sally in order to take over her inheritance.
