Maverick is an American Western television series with comedic overtones created by Roy Huggins. The show ran from September 22, 1957 to July 8, 1962 on ABC and stars James Garner as Bret Maverick, an adroitly articulate cardsharp. Eight episodes into the first season, he was joined by Jack Kelly as his brother Bart, and from that point on, Garner and Kelly alternated leads from week to week, sometimes teaming up for the occasional two-brother episode. The Mavericks were poker players from Texas who traveled all over the American Old West and on Mississippi riverboats, constantly getting into and out of life-threatening trouble of one sort or another, usually involving money, women, or both. They would typically find themselves weighing a financial windfall against a moral dilemma. More often than not, their consciences trumped their wallets since both Mavericks were intensely ethical.
When Garner left the series after the third season due to a legal dispute, Roger Moore was added to the cast as their cousin Beau Maverick. Robert Colbert appeared later in the fourth season as a third Maverick brother, Brent Maverick. No more than two of the series leads ever appeared together in the same episode, and usually only one.
Livornese with a short and tormented life, Dedo or Modì, as he was nicknamed, is narrated here from an original point of view: that of Jeanne Hébuterne, the last young companion who committed suicide two days after the death of her beloved, which occurred at Hôpital de la Charité in Paris on January 24, 1920. Jeanne was pregnant at the time and left behind a one-year-old daughter. It is precisely starting from his figure and from reading a passage from the “Canti di Maldoror”, the book that Modigliani always kept with him, that the docu-film opens which also draws inspiration from the exhibition “Modigliani - Picasso. The Primitivist Revolution "¬- curated by Marc Restellini and scheduled at the Albertina in Vienna ¬- and is enriched by the images of works exhibited both at the Albertina and at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, in museums and collections in Paris and in the large exhibition “Modigliani and the Montparnasse Adventure” of the Museum of the City of Livorno.
Young Maverick is a 1979 television series that unsuccessfully attempted to recapture some of the magic of the highly successful 1957 series Maverick, which had starred James Garner as roving gambler Bret Maverick.

Frank's real-life wife Susan Blanchard played his girlfriend Nell, while John Dehner appeared as a frontier marshal who had arrested Ben's father Beau decades before. The series was cancelled by CBS after only eight hour-long episodes had been shown, leaving several which were never aired.
The 1978 TV-movie The New Maverick, featuring Garner as Bret, Frank as Ben, Jack Kelly as Bret's brother Bart Maverick, and Blanchard as Nell, served as the pilot for the series.

Among the actors appearing on the series were Howard Duff, John McIntire, James Woods, Donna Mills, and Harry Dean Stanton. Roger Moore, who played Beau Maverick in the original series, never appeared in Young Maverick. Despite the title, Frank was three years older than Garner had been at the launch of the original series.
