Roadhouse 66 is a 1984 film directed by John Mark Robinson and starring Willem Dafoe.[1]

The film is set entirely in Kingman, Arizona, and Oatman, Arizona, two towns on historic U.S. Route 66.

Synopsis[edit]

A young adult from New York is on his way to California for a business meeting when he runs into trouble with some local hoodlums in Kingman who shoot at his car and try to run him off the road. He hooks up with a hitchhiker who is also passing through town, who turns out to be a former rock and roll musician, and the two attempt to set things right in the town, culminating in their entry in an automobile race from Kingman to Oatman and back.

Cast[edit]
