  • The gang's all here.

    Hadley's Hunters was the second episode of Season Four of Maverick. By this time, star James Garner had walked off the series and was suing studio Warner Brothers to get out of his contract. Roger Moore was added to the cast to replace(?) Garner but he thankfully does not appear here. Jack Kelly, as Bart Maverick, goes it alone in this tale of Bart being framed for a crime by a crooked sheriff and having to go on the run. During the course of this run, Bart meets up with nearly every cowboy star on the Warner Brothers back lot plus Kookie from 77 Sunset Strip. Robert Colbert also puts in a guest appearance in this one. Colbert would be brought back to the show later in Season Four playing yet another Maverick relative, Brent. He was cast when Roger Moore departed the series after his contract with Warner Brothers expired.
