When Martin Milner was a callow Hollywood actor during the late 1940s, he learned the subtleties of his craft by observing other performers. Milner was fortunate--before turning 30, he worked with the likes of Henry Fonda, John Wayne, Burt Lancaster and Gary Cooper. Probably best known for starring in television's "Route 66" and "Adam 12" despite a string of supporting roles in several movies, Milner now finds himself in similar circumstances.

Contrary to popular belief, the Corvette convertible the characters Tod Stiles and Buz Murdock drove on the existential black-and-white 1960-64 CBS series "Route 66" was not red and white. "The original ones were blue," said George Maharis, 83, who starred as the handsome, dangerous and hotheaded Buz, who set out to travel the country with Tod (Martin Milner), a clean-cut young man who had grown up in luxury only to discover after his father's death that most of the money was gone.

Has it been that long? The "old" "Adam-12" ran from 1968-75, and now coppers Martin Milner and Kent McCord are together again, this time promoted to civvies and moved to Nashville, Tenn., with brand new identities but the old business. "Nashville Beat," a Nashville-shot movie that unashamedly begs for series status, premiers tonight at 6 on cable's Nashville Network. This would be TNN's first creation of a dramatic series. The "boys" were old LAPD partners.
