Route 66 – The TV series

   One of the items on sale at the Rt. 66 Festival were DVD of the old Route 66 TV show.

   While this is a good thing, it turns out that the quality of the recordings varies greatly and is, on the whole, not very good.

   To my fevered mind this presents an interesting challenge.  Why can’t a university which specializes in film restoration give the restoration of the tapes/DVDs to one of their senior classes as their senior project?

   I googled Wikipedia and found a number of references and links.  This could easily be a good starting point for the restoration of the series.

Anyone interested?

I think, it would be fun to see the show again.

    Route 66 is officially coming out on Oct 23rd, 2007 (well at least the first 15 episodes) check Amazon or Deep Discount DVD.com
    They are remastered and the quality is excellent. There is another DVD of 11 “Best of” episodes made by the same company. The video is crystal clear. These are not bootlegs, they are official releases.
