Life imitates art
7 January 2008 | by SunsetlpSee all my reviews

Amazingly and tragically the Route 66 episode entitled: I'm here to kill a king was about a Todd Stiles (Martin Milner's character) lookalike who is a paid assassin. Also in the episode are Robert Loggia and Tina Louise. The lookalike is paid to kill a visiting Mideastern political dignitary while the foreign politician is taking a stroll through a park. The murder uses a high powered rifle high atop a grassy knoll like area. The blame is then tried to be put on Stiles after he is spotted by the actual assassin in a local store.

Ironically, the episodes original air date was suppose to be November 22,1963, the same day JFK was shot to death. Obviously, the episode did not air on the 22nd. Most if not all television networks were covering Kennedy's death.

The episode did finally air in 1964 after the season & series finally of Route 66. This is one of the greatest examples of life imitating art.
