Quite a coincidence! I wasn't aware of that. Another coincidence: I'm currently working my way chronologically through Route 66 for the third time. I'm in the fourth season and I'm a few episodes short of Child of a Night. I'll keep an eye for Miss Pettet there. She looks a lot different as a 22 year-old! I almost didn't recognize her. Thanks for the information and pics, Neal.
My pleasure! Coincidences x 2! Looks like we have a new member in our small yet loyal Route 66 group. Welcome to the ranks of the obsessed Tom. If you have The Fugitive S03E21 Shadow of the Swan watch all of it and you'll see more of the Joanna Pettet you're accustomed to seeing.

Love the Route 66 theme. Has everyone (who has the dvds) noticed that the high fidelity, stereo version plays during the menus of the Shout release? Likely granted from the album version.
Yes I have. Actually any DVD sets that plays the theme song over and over again drives me crazy. The Invaders does that. I almost threw it against the wall.

New member, long time fan of Route 66. Back before I had cable in the mid 80's, I had friends taping it off Nick at Nite. I later picked up the Columbia House tapes. Unfortunately, subsequent to picking up the Roxbury (one season) and Shout releases, I got rid of most of my Nick at Nite tapes. Not only did I lose the film transfers from Nick with next week previews, but came to learn about the edited and dark image problems with the dvds. But thanks to Randall for his efforts in checking on this and sharing it in an earlier post. One of my favorite episodes is Once to Every Man. A really strong performance by Janice Rule. The theme and great photography in locations around the country with the cool Corvette must have made an impression on me as a child.

f you have The Fugitive S03E21 Shadow of the Swan watch all of it and you'll see more of the Joanna Pettet you're accustomed to seeing.

Thanks for that tip, Neal. I'm also on the fourth season of The Fugitive. I'll go back and rewatch Shadow. Checking my notes, I see that I liked it.

That's great to hear Tom. That's also painful to hear re: the Nick episodes. But if you only had them on VHS tapes don't feel too bad. You sound as if you know all of us here. Were you one of the silent majority lurkers that now has this thread approaching 34K views? Yes agreed. Check this out if you haven't done so already. Once To Every Man (Gloucester, Massachusetts).

Great. One item I neglected to mention yesterday morning. Women's appearances are like that of a chameleon. Just look at the images of Joanna Pettet which you posted from Night Gallery and then those from Route 66. The major differences? The early Joanna Pettet has little to no make-up and no sun tan. The latter just the opposite. Just like the differences in the tv appearances of Laura Devon. With and without make-up makes all the difference in the world.

Milner appeared as 17-year-old high school student "Stephen Banner" in the episode "The Big Producer" in 1954.

According to Webb's biography "Just the Facts, Ma'am", Webb owed Commissioner Milner money from a card game. When Webb called him to the studio to pay him back, he offered Milner a role in the "Dragnet" radio show. Webb continued to find roles for Commissioner Milner until he offered him the role of Officer "Pete Malloy" on "Adam-12".​

Happened to be watching Macgyver a few days ago and Martin Milner was on.
Thanks Alan. I went looking for it on YT. It's not there but I did find a few other shows with Mr. Milner. I also found this which I feel was quite well done by a true Route 66 fan. It's from 2014. So your post here triggered some more great R66 related videos!

Neal, that's some great stuff right there! Until you started making these posts, in this thread and others, I had no idea that there was such a wealth of great and varied TV shows now available on Youtube (and Dailymotion). It's always a treat to see Milner and Maharis in other settings.

Too bad that The Virginian full episodes aren't on YT. We get to see Martin Milner as a villain in the superb, spectacular and remarkably cast season five episode The Trail To Ashley Mountain (Nov. 2, 1966)...Milner plays a bank-robbing killer who plans on killing Trampas (Doug McClure), a Sheriff and his former accomplice now on the run in order to cover-up his own crimes. And maybe kill another few bounty hunters and trail bums who might get in his way, ha, ha!

Guest star Martin Milner shares this episode with George Kennedy (just before his Oscar in Cool Hand Luke), Gene Evans, Hugh Marlowe, Raymond St. Jacques (Rawhide), Judi Meredith, Steve Carlson, Paul Comi and Jackie (Uncle Fester) Coogan! I previously posted more of these screen caps of the whole cast and spectacular outdoor locations that I took from the Timeless DVD set in another thread, but should at least post the ones of Martin Milner here...

Wow very nice Randall, great collection of Marty Milner as a bad guy in The Virginian. Yes I was surprised when I started digging that I found as many as I did, even the two additional Police Story episodes with George Maharis, (and if you noticed The Ho Chi Minh Trail with Raymond St. Jacques) which I missed the first time around. It sure is refreshing to screen cap from a beautiful source as they come out looking so spectacular! Appreciate the backdrop on this one, (poor Jackie Coogan always typecast as Uncle Fester). I'm slowly plodding my way through The Virginian. I've stalled on Season 7, but I'm sure I'll get back into it at some point. Isn't it nice that we have so much stuff to watch that we forget we ever saw specific episodes from a series? I know I saw Trail to Ashley Mountain (1966) but now I can rewatch as though it's the first time!

But where are the caps from Timberland (1965)? Hahaha, just kidding.

TCM is airing the 1967 feature film A Covenant With Death tonight. (I'm in Mountain, where it airs at 8PM, so it must be 10PM Eastern) Starring George Maharis, Laura Devon, Katy Jurado, Earl Holliman, Arthur O'Connell, Sidney Blackmer, Gene Hackman, John Anderson, Whit Bissell, Kent Smith, Paul Birch and Wende Wagner!

Set in a border town in 1920s New Mexico, Maharis plays a judge presiding over a contentious murder trial. Not a great movie, but with George Maharis and Laura Devon it bears watching for fans of Route 66. Arthur O'Connell (From an Enchantress Fleeing), Gene Hackman (Who Will Cheer My Bonnie Bride) John Anderson (Shall Forfeit His Dog and Ten Shillings to the King) Whit Bissell (Black November) all appeared in Route 66 also, so the connections are many. The film is in color, filmed on location at old Santa Fe, and features the same Stutz Bearcat that later appeared in 1971's Bearcats!.

Thanks very much Randall, but I think there's different schedules for TCM in different locations as it's not on tonight's schedule here.

Oh, that's too bad Neal! I've struggled to understand which TCM feed I have here, I think that TCM has two continental feeds, East and West, with identical programming most of the time. I compared your schedule with mine, and the ONLY difference for today was The Badlanders being slotted in where I have A Covenant With Death! But sometimes the dreaded 'rights' issue pops up on occasion too. With restrictions for different countries for instance. But I know that A Covenant With Death has been shown on TCM before, and hopefully it will turn up on your schedule soon! Hopefully Gunn will also appear, so we can see lovely Laura Devon's final acting gig too...

No worries. Appreciate you making me aware of this film and it's cast. I'm fairly sure I've seen it many years ago but of course have no recollection of it. GUNN is one flick I've been unable to locate anywhere, even for purchase?!! I'll record The Badlanders just in case there's a glitch in their schedule. Thanks!

Randall, who is the screen cap between the b/w Getty images one of Maharis and Anderson and the color one of Maharis and Hackman? My mind isn’t working today.

Neal, did you find A Covenant With Death on your TCM recording last night? I recorded A Covenant With Death as scheduled here. And it is the newer remastering in WS Cinemascope at 2.35 aspect ratio, brilliant colors and filmed spectacularly in the old Santa Fe New Mexico area. It's available on DVD from Warner Archive. I just sampled my DVR recording and will finish watching it soon. I know I've seen it before on TV years ago, where it was cropped to 1.33. Not a great movie by any means, even with that great cast, but still worth watching for it's unique collection of Route 66 players. Earl Holliman is the accused killer of his notorious wayward wife. But the story plays out slowly with romantic subplots and character development with it's large cast. Another theme is racial tension between Latinos and Anglos. The setting and scenery is gorgeous. And that includes the exquisite beauties of Laura Devon and Wende Wagner (who did the diving and underwater stunts as a stand-in for all of the gorgeous girls who came and went on Sea Hunt and Flipper) George Maharis gets to roll around with both Laura Devon and Wende Wagner!

Apparently, this film was Gene Hackman's big break. Noticed here, he was soon cast that same year in Bonnie and Clyde...and he was off to the races as an A-list star with one box-office hit after another going into the '70s...

Weird that the only difference in yesterday's schedule between your TCM feed and mine was having The Badlanders (a good movie from 1958 with Alan Ladd and Ernest Borgnine and Katy Jurado who is also in A Covenant With Death)
Randall, who is the screen cap between the b/w Getty images one of Maharis and Anderson and the color one of Maharis and Hackman? My mind isn’t working today.
Alan, I believe you're asking about Earl Holliman? The co-star on such shows as Wide Country and Police Woman. In the B+W Getty press photo, the man between George Maharis and John Anderson is Lonny Chapman.

Both Earl Holliman and Gene Hackman are still with us. Holliman just turned 93, and Hackman is 91! George Maharis just turned 93 about a month ago!
