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.
Traversing the famed Route 66, stretching from Chicago, Ill., to Santa Monica, Calif., Yale graduate Tod Stiles (Martin Milner) and Buz Murdock (George Maharis) encounter a myriad of loners, dreamers and outsiders, portrayed by an array of Hollywood’s biggest stars early in their careers. Appearing are: Alan Alda, Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr., Peter Lorre, Suzanne Pleshette, James Caan, Stefanie Powers, Robert Duvall, Walter Matthau, Martin Sheen, Ronny Howard, Peter Graves, Leslie Nielsen, Robert Redford and Tom Bosley, among others.
Route 66: Producer’s Picks are digitally remastered from 35mm with the original aspect ratio of 4:3 (1.33:1) to preserve the program as closely as possible while maximizing picture and audio quality
