HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Nov. 8 Jack Kelly, who played Bart, the brother of Bret Maverick, played by James Garner, in the popular television series "Maverick," died on Saturday at the Humana Hospital here. He was 65 years old and lived in Huntington Beach.

Mr. Kelly, who was a councilman and former mayor in this Orange County city, had a stroke on Wednesday, said Dave Kelly, a city spokesman, who is not related to the actor.
Mr. Kelly and Mr. Garner played dapper cardsharks on the western, which mixed comedy with drama and ran on ABC from 1957 to 1962.

Unlike typical western heroes, the Maverick brothers were not afraid to show fear in the face of danger or to run from a gunfight whenever possible. Roger Moore appeared as a cousin, Beauregard Maverick, during one season. From a

Family of Actors

Mr. Kelly, who came from an acting family, also appeared in several movies, including "Where Danger Lives," "Drive a Crooked Road," "To Hell and Back, "She-Devil" and "Forbidden Planet."

His mother was the actress Nan Kelly Yorke, and his sister, Nancy Kelly, appeared in films from the 1920's to the 1950's.

Mr. Kelly continued to make cameo appearances on television in recent years, as well as voice-overs for commercials.
He was halfway through his third four-year term on the City Council, and had been Mayor of Huntington Beach from 1983 to 1986.

He underwent bypass surgery in May after suffering a heart attack. He had rebounded in recent months, however, and had attended Monday's City Council meeting.
He is survived by his wife, Jo Ann, and a daughter, Nicole.
