reviewed Maverick: Legend of the West on
Like most legends, Maverick's history is based as much on myth as on fact. Maverick: Legend of the West examines the myths and the realities, what made the show work during its first two seasons and how the backstage sturggles drove away the two key components behind the show's success-creator/producer Roy Huggins and star James Garner.

Bret Maverick, the thinking person's Wild West hero, rides again in this thorough documentation of the Emmy award-winning TV series. Maverick tells the inside story of the classic series, which catapulted James Garner to stardom and which inspired the 1994 Warner Brothers film starring Mel Gibson, James Garner, and Jodie Foster.
