Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times on "The 6"

This iconic image documents the closing scene in Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times, shot right on the Santa Clarita stretch of U.S 6 in 1936.; click here to watch the video  According to the Founder and CEO of the US Route 6 Association, Russ Lombard (much more on him in future posts), "more major movies and TV shows have been filmed along the old U.S. 6 in the Santa Clarita, California area than on any other highway."  I'm looking forward to getting out of the car, putting on a bowler hat and penguin-stepping down the road, just like the star of Modern Times.
