Re: TO THE BATPOLES #116: Victor Buono: Holy Ad-Libbed Comedy!

Thanks to Tim and Paul for yet another enlightening show. Tim, you certainly proved your point about Buono's ad-libbing. I'll add this--he played a lot of villains in those days, on The Wild Wild (non-Adam) West, Voyage To The Bottom of The Sea, even one in Dozier's unsold Dick Tracy pilot, and he a...

Re: Local News Article On Jay Sebring

To put it in Bat-lore perspective for anyone who might not know-- Jay Sebring was a big name Hollywood Hair Stylist who remained good friends with his ex-girlfriend Sharon Tate and sadly was murdered by the Manson Family on August 8, 1969. Jay was a stylist for Bat Producer Bill Dozier and was in a...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #114: Putting "Clean Sweep" under the microscope

For whatever reasons, this Batman ep never floated my boat. I mean, it's not terrible, it's just kinda meh, IMO. But your show was good as always. You guys mentioned all the way back in Gorshin's finale how the season 3 ethos seemed to be to make the Duo, especially Robin, look dumber to make BG loo...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #113: Tying Ourselves in Knots: Nora Clavicle Reconsidered (with “Twof”!)

This post is long overdue. I know a lot of people do not like this episode of the show itself, but I would urge them to give this episode of the podcast a try. I think people will learn things they didn't know about the writing and filming of it, and Fred's knowledge of info connected with the ep is...

Re: SCRIPT: KING TUT'S COUP, a.k.a. TUT TUT TUT

And remember, Joan Collins was publicly considered for the role of Cleopatra once upon a time. :) And Joan did a photo shoot as Cleo for the UK Esquire Magazine around that time. In the Ross first draft it's rather ridiculous that the Professor decides he might as well become Tut just because the t...

I already have a problem with the Townsends' treatment--it refers to Cleopatra as 'the siren of all time.' High C demands a recount!! :cry:

Then again, it is dated June 1966, so those two poor deluded creatures can be forgiven for their lapse in judgment...

Re: Other Great 60s Shows...

Terrific idea for a thread, Andy. I'm sorry I'm late to the party but I wanted to bump it back up. Here are some of my favorites, some of which haven't been mentioned. In alphabetical order: Dragnet. Kind of inadvertently funny, especially when Jack Webb would give what he called the 'Jesus speech' ...

Re: Any Bowling Green lectures available?

As you probably are aware, it was discussed on the To The Batpoles podcast, starting at approximately 1:19:37. http://tothebatpoles.libsyn.com/109-louie-the-lilac-baffles-bat-conference-informs I can't help you on the last two, but it's my understanding the McVetta presentation was just a fanboyish ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #112: Court BAT-tles: The Law on the '66 Show

This was an interesting podcast. Attorney Jim Dedman had many fascinating things to say about how '66 Batman was often off the mark in terms of legal issues. I'll admit it was disappointing to me that Siren wasn't referenced. I would liked to have heard Mr. Dedman's thoughts on how someone with Sire...

Re: Favorite Catwoman Actress?

This always is a fascinating topic. I'm on record many times on this board in expressing my distaste for the namby-pamby CW of season 2. Julie Newmar's season 1 arc is as good as it gets, but Stanley Ralph Ross softened the character so much in season 2 that she was a lot different than the Catwoman...

Fun show, guys. I was very engaged with the episode even with my lack of familiarity with The Wrong Earth. It was a lively and interesting discussion. Some comments: I liked Paul's comment on 'Winged Warhorse.' I definitely could hear Neil Hamilton saying that, yes. ... Tim's comment about the 'face...

Saw her birthday in the paper and thought of posting something. I knew you wouldn't let her down!
What are you talking about? I didn't post anything. The last thing I remember was getting a long-distance call from England, and hearing a strange dial tone... :?
