The Gambler, the Señiorita, and the Cup of Gold Coins
When I was a youngster, and even a young adult, I never missed a chance to watch the television re-runs of Maverick, with James Garner as a professional gambler who muddles his way through the west, always getting into trouble himself, and at the same time getting poor victims of other gamblers and gangsters out of trouble. I never thought I'd ever find a cowboy western movie that had the spirit of Maverick, but I have found one, and this is it!
As our story opens, we learn about the origins of the term ‘aces and eights’ - the hand that Wild Bill Hickock had in his hand when he was shot in the back and killed by an enemy. But that deadly hand was a very lucky hand for the poker player in this movie, and it provided that salvation for the Hernandez Rancho, and helped prove two men innocent of murder.
Gentleman Tim Madigan, played by Tim McCoy, is one of the best-known poker players and card cheaters in the west, but he seems to be a pretty good-natured fellow, and only cheats other cheaters. Tim exposes a card cheater, but before the two men can fight it out, the town marshal runs them both out of town.
Unfortunately, someone kills the card cheater that Tim exposed, and Tim will be hunted down and accused of killing the card sharp. When the marshal finds Tim and tells him that the man is deader than his Aunt Emma’s chances at matrimony, Tim goes into hiding at the Hernandez ranch while he tries to clear his name. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
