Trivia:
Three future movie stars nearly became regulars on this series. When the show was first getting off the ground, a young unknown named Robert Redford auditioned for the role of Tod Stiles, but was beaten out by Martin Milner. When George Maharis left the show in late 1962, the producers searched for a replacement. Burt Reynolds was approached, but turned down the role as he was focusing on a film career and was not interested in a weekly series. Another actor who did want to do the series was future Academy Award winner Robert Duvall, who was even auditioned in one episode. The producers felt that Duvall was not handsome enough, however, and went with Glenn Corbett instead.See more »

As good as most theatrical movies, 24 December 1998
Author: Tom Chenevert (markviilin@aol.com) from Dunstable, Ma

Rt 66 was such a breath of fresh air. I have been a movie buff all my life and after seeing all the backlot tv shows from the mid fifties to 1960, this show had my eyes wide open. Everything was on location and the production values were as good as any theatrical movie. Some of the story lines toward the end of the run were stupid but the values were always there. Most of the time I would watch the show to see how good location filming done quickly could be done so good. I think the producer owned or had owned Republic Studios who were the best at making movie serials and that would explain a lot. In watching reruns it is surprising how little the Corvette was actually seen in some episodes. After this, I found backlot shows to be very cheap, boring entertainment.
