Product Details

"Route 66" has gone down in television history as being one of the most critically-acclaimed and beloved series of the 1960's. The show featured two men who travelled the United States in a Corvette convertible enountering various people with their problems that the duo helped solve. Starring Martin Milner as Tod and superhunk George Maharis as Buz, the one-hour drama was similar in theme to "The Fugitive" with the series' leads taking a back seat to that week's guest-stars who carried the bulk of the story. The show is also known for its beautiful cinematography (the show was filmed in at least 8 different states and two episodes were filmed in Canada), it's lush and memorable theme song and the fancy car the guys drove around in. George Maharis unfortunately left the series in early 1963 due to health problems and was replaced by Glenn Corbett (a future soap opera actor in "The Doctors") as Linc. The guest-stars was a who's who of Hollywood actors including Joan Crawford, Boris Karloff, Jack Lord, Susan Oliver, James Caan and even featured a young Burt Reynolds in a small supporting role. A total of 116 episodes of "Route 66" were filmed in its short four season run and are included here in this deluxe box set edition. There are 24 discs.
