Seed of Deception - Maverick

Video thumbnail. Click to play

Seed of Deception adapted for radio aired April 13, 1958. Riding through the town of Bonita, Bret and Bart are mistaken for Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday and stumble onto a bank robbery plot. When Maverick first premiered it went up against Steve Allen and The Ed Sullivan Show, a pair of heavyweight programs at the time. Maverick would eventually surpass both in the ratings for a short time. Though it began as a traditional western upon its premiere in 1957, Maverick soon developed into something much more than that. Elements of humor and parody were soon added and the show's popularity quickly took off. Maverick made a star out of James Garner, who played gambler Bret Maverick, and Jack Kelly lent fine support as brother Bart.
