A harbinger of the 60s
7 May 2012 | by pfrank-4See all my reviews

The Route 66 show seems to have had the following theme: Two flashy young guys in a flashy new car go around spreading 1960s enlightenment and values to the darker corners of America. And it's not an easy task: Each episode requires a couple of fistfights. In tonight's episode, the two find themselves stranded in a deeply rural Southern town, contending with various kinds of prejudice and narrow-mindedness. The episode is filmed in overwhelming darkness, beyond film noir. Its cultural oppositions seem somewhat pat today, but back then this show represented novelty. Nice score by Nelson Riddle. The show also has interesting early appearances by George Kennedy and Keir Dullea.
