That's great, thank you very much Ben. I'm putting together a timeline for my upcoming article.

By any chance, do you know the filming dates for The Purr-fect Crime?

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

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: Closing in on The Ultimate 1966 Bat Cowl!!!

If funds permit, this is a must for me.

Do you sell the Adam West bust as well?

You are doing absolutely incredible work!

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...

Cesar Romero in 3-D!

We're remembering the great Cesar Romero on his birthday: February 15, 1907. By this fall, you will be seeing his long-lost 3-D feature EL CORAZON Y LA ESPADA on Blu-ray as part of our highly anticipated 3-D RARITIES II collection from Flicker Alley. We're not joking; this rarity has not seen anywhe...

Re: I think Dozier rolled the dice with Gorshin

I'd say Gorshin was already a name in 1965. He was playing the top clubs and before Batman aired, he had signed for his 11th Ed Sullivan appearance. Besides, you don't buy a Bel Air mansion without some money in the pocket. He was the bigger TV name and she was the bigger movie name. Dozier simply c...

Re: I think Dozier rolled the dice with Gorshin

Gorshin was hot in 1965. In addition to his very popular nightclub work and variety show guest spots, his dramatic role on COMBAT was well received, he was in talks to open on Broadway in Jerome Robbins' The Office and he did a western with Chuck Connors, "Ride Beyond Vengeance." And he bought a man...

Re: 1965 BAT preview

There are a lot of different cuts in that video and his line ordering the orange juice is the original track recorded on set. In the final show, it's looped in post.
