Maverick had all of the underpinnings of a series starter.  Big names, quality set decorations, a respected director (Richard Donner) at the helm...  

... unfortunately, more than one movie just wasn't in the cards.  What we do have, though, is arguable a modern classic.  It's Mel Gibson and Jodi Foster at their respective heights (Mel would go on to Braveheart, Jodie Foster to Nell).  James Garner and James Coburn each ground the film with their solid performances, and a host of cameos pepper every scene for flavor.

This movie works on so many levels and we're breaking down all the great stuff behind the scenes to help explain why!
