James Garner - 'Maverick' Marathon July 4 Encore Movie Channel

Airing Friday July 4, a 'Maverick' marathon on the cable Encore Movie Channel.

'Maverick' ran from 1957-1962 on ABC, and stars James Garner as Bret Maverick and Jack Kelly as Bret's brother, Bart Maverick.


The fastest hand (of poker) in the Old West is coming to Encore. MAVERICK, featuring the Maverick boys Bret (James Garner), Bart (Jack Kelly), Beau (Roger Moore) and Brent (Robert Colbert) ruled the airwaves with a heady mixture of quick draws and even quicker wits. Combining comedy and action with everyone’s favorite anti-heroes, Maverick’s skillful blend of twisting plots and stacked decks is unforgettable…and it’s only on Encore.
