Morality in Dallas, Circa 1961
17 September 2010 | by (Norman, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This episode of ROUTE 66 is, above all, a fascinating visual glimpse of the Dallas, Texas of a half century ago. As someone who's spent a lot of time in Dallas over the last 30+ years, I've always wanted to see what the earlier Dallas was like. And this episode is a better visual record of that earlier Dallas than anything I've yet found. I would say this was shot around December of 1961. So circa 1961, here's what the Dallas Love Field airport looked like, here's what the Dallas Trade Mart looked like, here's a good look at the downtown skyline, the large Marriott Motor Lodge that used to sit just north of Oaklawn next to the "brand new" Stemmons Freeway (or I-35)...there's a lot of Dallas history captured in this episode. And, for the Dallasites out there, well worth studying.

And oh, by the way, there's quite a good morality play suspense thriller here as well, with good performances from the series leads and an excellent one from David Wayne, wonderfully underplayed.

Enjoy.
