Route 66, 1960-64, an edgy anthology of downbeat character studies and psychological dramas, was one of the most brilliant and highly rated television series of the era. The original road trip adventure, shot entirely on location with top drawer writing, intriguing characters and stellar guest star appearances, it established the Corvette as an American icon.
In Route 66, Yale graduate Tod Stiles, Martin Milner, is an intellectual who has led a privileged life. Buz Murdock, George Maharis, is a tough young man, who has struggled his entire life just to survive. When his wealthy father dies, Tod finds himself unexpectedly penniless with just one possession, a powder blue Chevrolet Corvette. On a quest to find adventure and themselves, Tod and Buz hit the open road in the ultimate American journey.
Traversing the famed Route 66, stretching from Chicago, Ill., to Santa Monica, Calif., these two dreamers encounter a myriad of loners, dreamers and outsiders, portrayed by an array of Hollywood s biggest stars early in their careers.
