# Quote
1 Nelson Riddle was terrific, he really was. And I always loved that theme. It was based on, I think, somebody told me, an old Jimmy Dorsey thing which was called “Oodles of Noodles,” but I’m not sure about that. I love that theme, you know. Ba-da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-daa. It’s just a traveling song. — GM, on the theme song from the series Route 66 (1960)
2 You learn to draw from your own life experiences and allow that to serve you as you play a character. It encourages you to be daring, fresh, not repetitive, and it draws you away from imitating. The end result is that your work is honest and believable because you’re connected to what you’re doing. — GM, on the positive aspects of “Method” acting

7 He left the popular series Route 66 (1960) almost near the end of its third season in an uproar over some contract dispute and was later replaced by Glenn Corbett as Martin Milner‘s new sidekick.
