Re: Courtroom scenes and other bat-law questions

In The Penguin Goes Straight deathtrap, Gordon and O'Hara fire what they believe to be pop guns at a carnival target, not knowing Batman and Robin were hanging behind the curtain. After they escaped, Batman wouldn't go after Penguin since it was the commissioner and police chief who fired the shots....

Re: Just a few things about the movie

If he was uncharacteristically rude, it was because of his sense that they were about to have their hands full with super-criminals. And in the days before Twitter, the press was always trying to bait leaders into a paper-selling quote. Like Nellie Majors would later do. Batman was very concerned bu...

Re: Unsolved Mysteries of the series

4. It's been a long time since I read it, but I seem to recall Tommy Tedesco played guitar? #4: He played lead guitar for the Marketts (the wrecking crew). Considering the Marketts got their Batman album out weeks before Hefti, it may or may not be true. I'd love to see studio sign in forms. I have...

Re: Official Notice - Titles and Links Requirements

Very good move, and I wish a few other boards I frequent would do the same. ;) I never saw the point in ambiguous thread titles, since you can roll the cursor over the title and the first sentence or so pops up. And as a rule I don't click or comment in threads with just a link, so as not to encoura...

Re: Bat-upstaging

I've been going through some old episodes (I know, redundant since there aren't any new ones ;) ) and one thing that struck me that does give credence to Burt Ward's claims is comparing Adam West's scenes with molls and female villains. I have yet to see West stammer with his female co-stars the way...

Re: Aunt Harriet in the 1966 movie.

I always liked Madge Blake in both Batman and Leave it to Beaver. One of my favorite LITB episodes is where Larry Mondello throws his mother's money out the window and claims he found it, as it probably fell out of the pockets of pilot doing upside down tricks. ;) And Madge Blake was hysterical in ...

Re: Real Names

Surely, on that point about cheques, when the Penguin and Batman both ran for Mayor we should have heard their real names? The same when Batman was going to marry Marsha( no surname for her then either) Oh the out-there City of Gotham. At least it is safer than Cabot Cove! You never know in Gotham ...

Siren's name of Lorelei Circe was given in both of her episodes. She needed a name, because how could Bruce sign over his assets to 'The Siren'? :D
The same way Batman (with one T) was going to endorse the ransom check for the maharajah. ;)

Re: Secondary Villains

I agree on Season Three - love it! And yes, Fred was superb.

Anna Gram definitely had some spunk and didn't fall in love with Batman. She'd have made a great villain.

Re: CLIFFHANGER!

Lots of great ones: Catwoman frying Batman and Robin on the rooftop. The sexual overtones were strong on this one. Penguin catapulting the Dynamic Duo across town with a camera strapped to them, watching as it happens. Zelda blindfolding Aunt Harriet and dangling her above a cauldron. I'm sure they ...

Re: Streaming service to stream 66Batman

It's the modern method of consuming music, television, movies. Personally I'm glad to have the DVD's. Been through some hurricanes in which there was no internet connection for a month afterward. I even suggested in the Bat-music thread that instead of a CD, perhaps the streaming route would be bett...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

I'm surprised that stereotypes like this are still common. A bodybuilder can quote Shakespeare just as well as anyone else. Maybe spend some time in your local gym. I think you'll find that many of the most muscular guys and gals are often doctors and lawyers who aren't lacking in the brains depart...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

I wouldn't describe Adam as having a "swimmer's body." Long legs and broad shoulders, sure. He wasn't particularly out of shape and he wasn't fat like the common jokes make him out to be, but he also wasn't "in extremely good physical shape" or "powerfully built" by any means. If anything , I think...
