Is it possible to enlarge the photo? If it isn't, I apologize for asking.

Vintage Joan Collins quotes about the show

Was doing a newspaper search to pass the time and found this. It's a story almost assuredly written by the Fox or ABC publicity folks about Joan Collins' appearance on the show, including two contemporaneous quotes from her. Plus a quip from Adam. This is from the Pittsburgh Press on Sept. 17, 1967....

Re: Batman scripts

The To The Batpoles podcast has done numerous script episodes, some that were filmed, and some not. Here are links to them, with links to the scripts on those linked pages, and I certainly recommend the commentary by hosts Tim and Paul Young.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #129: The Show's Ratings, and Rating "Godzilla"

Tim and Paul, thanks for another terrific Bat-History lesson, with a big assist from Bob Furmanek, of course. What surprised me, as it did in one of those previous threads, was the fact that the first Catwoman arc of season 2 tanked in the ratings, as did Archer. Greenway could rationalize Archer as...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #129: The Show's Ratings, and Rating "Godzilla"

About the conflicting quotes regarding the series budget per episode, none of the figures mentioned quite match the figures that used to be available on the late, lamented "Bat Documents" website. GREAT NEWS! Board member epaddon found it on the Internet Wayback Machine. And the links work! https:/...

Re: Those Wacky Citizens of Gotham City

I've been meaning to bump this up for quite some time. My apologies to the OP for not doing so much sooner. My favorite instance of this came in season 1, and I think it is instructive because it takes place at the intersection of Semple's and Dozier's respective visions for the show. In The Ring of...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES: BAT-ANNOUNCEMENTS

Paul is now at least as busy as I am, so both of us have been having difficulty finding time to record an episode! Fingers crossed, new episode in early March. Thanks for your patience. High C (publicly): I understand. Real life always takes precedence. Take your time and do what needs to be done. ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #127: It’s a “Challenge” Just to Sit Through “Legends”

Listened to the podcast and played a drinking game for every "um" said and was hospitalized forty seconds into the podcast. Guys, cut the ums. I probably have listened to all but 2 or 3 of their podcasts and it never has struck me as a problem. I find 'you knows' more of a turnoff anyway. Just one ...

Re: Were the Green Hornet episodes the only ones not to have a Guest Villian in the credits?

Correct, old chum. Worse yet, he was paid only $2000 instead of the standard $3500, per Dozier's files.

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #127: It’s a “Challenge” Just to Sit Through “Legends”

Nice job, guys. This certainly was the quintessential 'taking one for the team.' At the time, I was unaware of the first, uh, 'special,' but knew of the second one, probably because I already was used to the roast format. I think I tuned in and bailed pretty quickly. I suspect if Newmar had been inv...

Ed McMahon looks more villainous than anyone else. Seriously.
