  1. THE FORBIDDEN CITY
    Original Airdate:
    March 26, 1961

Synopsis. The first of Robert Colbert’s two appearances as Brent Maverick, Bret and Bart’s younger brother.

Little is known about young Brent Maverick, the “other brother” who came and went after only two appearances. Whatever background Brent may have, it can’t be anywhere nearly as interesting as that of the actor who played him. The path that led Robert Colbert to film and television—and, eventually, Warner Bros.—is a remarkable story in which a radio commercial, a poem, and actor Mickey Shaughnessy all play pivotal parts.

LEARN MORE about this episode in the revised third edition of Maverick: Legend of the West, featuring more than 100 pages of new information about the show that made James Garner a star. 25 percent of the net proceeds from the sales of the third edition will be donated to The James Garner Animal Rescue Fund, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds to help rescue organizations, shelters, individuals, fosters, and veterans with emergencies, evacuations, medical care, adoptions, training, pet supplies, shelter, rehabilitation, boarding, transportation, food, and other pressing needs. JGARF is one way for Garner fans to honor Jim’s memory and extend his legacy. The revised third edition of Maverick: Legend of the West is available both in softcover and, very soon, as an eBook through Black Pawn Press, Amazon.com, and wherever books are sold online.
