Re: Recognizing Catwoman

PENGUIN: "Good day to you sirs, I am Commodore Schmidlap!" ROBIN: "Oh brother, who does he think he's kidding! That's the Penguin!" BATMAN: "Obviously..." ROBIN: "Gosh, who's that pretty Russian journalist?" BATMAN: "I have no idea, but I think I'm in love..." Great stuff there! Most of us guys hav...

Re: The Batman Tv Show Did It First

There's actually quite a few things foreshadowed in Batman from the 60's that have come to fruition today. Of course most of that is out of necessity and not directly influenced by Batman. But it's interesting to see things that may have seemed impossible in the 60's are now reality. For instance, w...

Re: The Batman Tv Show Did It First

So that brings up the age old question, Ginger or Mary Ann? Mary Ann, but that's because I always go more for the 'girl next door.' I've even seen a similar type question raised about Jan Smithers and Loni Anderson from WKRP in Cincinnati. Smithers, the 'girl next door' often does well, like Mary A...

Re: "Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights"

I'm not as up on these things as some here, so if anyone can share the real story, or a link, I'd be most appreciative. I couldn't imagine they would actually film something as dangerous as what was suggested. From Joel Eisner: “There are however a number of myths about this episode that were sprea...

Riddler was watching them get turned into human candles, albeit through a periscope in another room.

Re: "Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights"

And probably got more and more outlandish with each telling! Definitely how tall tales come to be, including the infamous tiger pit story . In the last interview I heard with Ward, the interviewer was good at asking him about the accident that happened on the Otto Preminger Mr. Freeze episode, but ...

Re: "Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights"

Folks, in keeping with our board's G Rating, let's shy away from any discussion about the sexual escapades or debates over physicality claims and so forth. Thank you. :) Sorry, my bad; won't happen again! :oops: :oops: Great post Batwinged Hornet, and as I'm sure we are all aware, 'Exaggeration or ...

Re: "Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights"

It's been years since I read it, but as we were alluding to in the movie thread, there is definitely a good deal of exaggeration. If memory serves, he suggests he was likely to get Dustin Hoffman's part in a big movie, but was contractually obligated to Batman. Could be true, but I'm not sure he had...

Re: "To the Batpoles" discussion of '66 MOVIE; Chris Gould joins us

I think the movie holds up well after 50+ years. Granted I'm probably one of the few here that really digs Batman when it gets really outlandish as it did in Season 3. But the movie seems to strike a nice balance between high camp and being somewhat serious. My random thoughts: I guess there just we...

Re: Good acting by secondary characters in the show

I think this is one area where the Batman '66 really shines. I have lots of favorites, but off the top of my head: Barbara Heller, Zelda the Great - As the owner of the jewelry store, she was weak at the knees when meeting Batman and Robin. But once the scheme failed, she quickly thought they were a...

Sad news, but she lived a long life.

I really liked her character and the 2 episodes she was in.

Re: Batman laboratory scenes

There's the scene toward the end of the '66 movie when they are separating the dust.

Also Batman with the microscope, looking at the Ligerian Fruit Fly, Season 3.

Re: How would she know?

There's a lot of instances where all parties involved could've easily put two and two together and figured out who's who. Like when they went to Londinium. Barbara Gordon makes the trip, then Batgirl mysteriously shows up? And what a coincidence - Bruce Wayne brought crates of stuff for his nephew D...

Re: What rekindled your interest in Batman '66?

TV Land airing it in the early 2000's. I had a handful of episodes on VHS from airings in the mid to late 80's; but the picture and sound weren't the best. Around 2003 when it was on TV Land, I recorded every episode, pausing for commercials when I was also able to watch (it aired at 3 in the mornin...
