Synopsis. Bart wins $5,000 playing poker in Fairview and stores the money in a hotel safe. The next day, he discovers that the money has been stolen, and the hotel clerk killed. Needing money, he applies for a loan at the bank, where he discovers that the bank president, a widow named Wilma White (guest star Julie Adams), is being threatened. Wilma hires Maverick to protect her.   

Julie Adams, whom we also saw as the queen of King City in “Brasada Spur,” had previously co-starred with Jack Kelly in a live presentation of “Just Across the Street” that aired on Lux Video Theatre in January 1957.
