Description by OLDIES.com:

MAVERICK: LEGEND OF THE WEST is a behind-the-scenes look at the iconic TV Western series that turned the genre inside out. Bret Maverick (James Garner), and later his brother Bart (Jack Kelly), neither looked nor behaved like a traditional cowboy hero. He dressed in black, played cards for a living, and wasn't above sneaking out the back door if it meant avoiding trouble. At a time when television was chock full of Westerns, "Maverick" (ABC, 1957-1962) stood out from the pack, putting series creator Roy Huggins on the map as a producer while making James Garner a star.

"Maverick" quickly became a bona fide TV legend, burning itself indelibly in the hearts and minds of Baby Boomers around the world. But like most legends, the show's history on television is a mixture of fact and fiction. Maverick: Legend of the West examines the myths and the realities, probing what made "Maverick" such a huge success in its first two seasons, while also revealing the backstage struggles with Warner Bros. that eventually drove away Huggins and Garner, the show's two key components.

This revised second edition features additional interviews with actor Efrem Zimbalist Jr. ("Dandy Jim Buckley") and guest stars Sherry Jackson, Julie Adams, and Linda Lawson, plus new information about the series, behind-the-scenes photographs, three appendices, and much, much more.
