Coming to DVD: Maverick - Season 2

The year is starting out with some terrific DVD news, which I learned this morning via ClassicFlix:

This Season 2 release will come on April 23rd, 11 months after Season 1 hit stores. Like Season 1, this is a regular retail release rather than being put out by the Warner Archive.

Season 2 includes the best-known MAVERICK episode, "Shady Deal at Sunny Acres," in which Bret (James Garner) sits in a chair whittling while Bart (Jack Kelly) and several of the brothers' friends run an elaborate scam to get back money stolen from Bret by a crooked banker (John Dehner).

It's great to see Jack Kelly sharing the cover with James Garner this time around, as he was left off the Season 1 box.

As a side note, Jack Kelly fans might be interested to know that SHE DEVIL (1957), a sci-fi film in which he costarred with Mari Blanchard, will be released on DVD by Olive Films on February 26th.

Other Kelly films on DVD include DRIVE A CROOKED ROAD (1954), which came out a year ago in the TCM Vault Collection's Columbia Pictures Film Noir Classics Vol. III; THE NIGHT HOLDS TERROR (1955), a DVD-R from Sony Choice; and JULIE (1956) from the Warner Archive.
