    Three Westerns You Won't See At The Top Of Film Buffs's Lists But I Love 'em.

    And Maverick Is The Best

    Maverick was witty and fun and didn't dumb things down.  Many of the plots were fairly intricate and involved but a casual viewer could still follow them.  Even  though each show involved one or more of the boys needing money and then devising some crazy scheme...

    Peter Breck As 'doc Holiday'

    I love it when Peter Breck (as Doc Holiday) joined the Maverick cast alongside of Jack Kelly (as Bart Maverick) and rarely with James Garner (as Bret Maverick).  Almost as handsome Bart, Doc Holiday was always getting into trouble and also was a gambler and ladies man like...
