Re: Batman Ratings

It's a VERY old expression popularized in a song written by James J. Walker in 1905. Now, in the summer of life, sweetheart You say you love but me Gladly I give all my heart to you Throbbing with ecstasy But last night I saw, while a-dreaming, The future old and gray, And I wondered if you'll love ...

Re: Batman Ratings

With the movie under-performing in theatres and those poor ratings, they must have known they were in trouble by the fall of 1966.

Thanks very much, we've just restored Cesar Romero's only 3-D feature: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcxKsU4GWyw I love the Bat Kids Fan Club pin. I've had one since the 70's and the non-licensed artwork is outstanding! By the way, does anyone know the first day of filming on the pilot and the pro...

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

Gentlemen, great work on the show, I enjoyed it very much! My primary intent in doing the research and sharing the documents was to set the record straight. I'm very glad that you did the podcast to help get the word out. My apologies for the dead links in the 2015 4th season thread. The images were...

Re: Cesar Romero in 3-D!

The original release was very limited in 3-D and was the only feature of the 1950's boom to use anaglyphic glasses. See myth number one: http://www.3dfilmarchive.com/home/top-10-3-d-myths Our 3-D Blu-ray release will be polarized meaning you must have a 3-D capable display and glasses. We may also d...

We're not joking; this rarity has not seen anywhe...
