"[I]t's a kind of Kerouac brought to you be Chevrolet, but it doesn't flinch from depicting the ignorance and ugliness sometimes underlying all the scenic beauty."
Lee Marvin, Leslie Nielsen, and E.G. Marshal are just a few of the amazing cameo appearances in the first season of this classic American TV series. The smart and gritty storylines, penned by Academy Award-winner Sterling Siliphant, are also what made the show stand out as it followed two buddies cutting across the states in their signature Corvette. By tackling difficult subject matter for the day--such as race, class, and politics--the show captured the free-spiritedness and tumultuousness that were the hallmarks of the 1960s.
