Re: Did the '66 movie need an A-list star?

I think that the 1966 Movie turned out ok.If it aint broke,do not fix it. Well if the 1.5 million budget is accurate information, and only earned an estimated 1.7 million, that's broke for a movie coming off of a successful 1st season of a TV series. I think there's no way to say the film was anyth...

Re: Did the '66 movie need an A-list star?

Good topic, High C. But the movie, while not a flop, didn't do the box-office business Dozier and Co. had hoped for. As Dozier (who was filled with bravado in his quotes before the movie debuted) later admitted, many people were unwilling to pay for something they believed they could get at home for...

Re: Recognizing Catwoman

You'll never reconcile the various Catwomen. Julie has romantic feelings for Batman. Lee shows no affection for Batman and only pretends to like Bruce. Eartha doesn't seem to have a sentimental cell in her whole body. If we can't even connect the dots from season 1 to season 3, what hope is there f...

Re: Recognizing Catwoman

As you may or may not recall, the movie was originally slated to be our introduction to the series, but was put off by the sudden ending of Ozzie and Harriet, thus becoming the mid season replacement for that series. Lots of things were rushed such as Barris having to have the Batmobile done in 10 ...

Re: Recognizing Catwoman

There is no consistency between the series and the movie. The movie operates in its own universe thanks to no one in the movie referring to the fact that they believed Catwoman died at the end of "Better Luck Next Time" . Additionally, when Catwoman returned in season 2's "Hot Off the Griddle" , Gor...

SPOILER: A lawyer from England says Batman already is married to a woman named Mrs. Harriet Batman, so it looks like the wedding with CW will have to be called off. :D
Yikes. He's better off with Catwoman! :mrgreen:

Re: Script: FASHIONS IN CRIME, by Peggy Shaw

"Fashions in Crime" --interesting take on how this series could be played. Again we have a writer who reveals what generation they come from with descriptions such as the following about a female prison guard: She has a body like a Ram fullback, and a face like a broken chair. The big, boxy female ...

Re: TV Tornado 1st Appearance

Great find, Lounge Lizard! Thanks for sharing the image! Over the years, I've bought TV Tornado and the annuals whenever I could find them, just for the Green Hornet strips. In tone, they are on the same level as the short-lived, TV-inspired GH comic from Gold Key, but its closer in overall spirit o...

Re: Villians watching the deathtrap in action

I just watched the Minstrel episodes and I noticed something interesting. The Minstrel and his gang stay and watch the deathtrap in action. The villians only get distracted by some explosions that Batman set up before the Dynamic Dou were captured and this is what allowed them to escape. But is thi...

Re: Funko!!! 4 inch figs!!!!

I echo the sentiment of the olden days when as kids you had no idea something was coming out. I remember seeing the Mego Original Four (Batman, Robin, Superman and Aquaman) at my local department store in the solid boxes and absolutely flipping out over them. Same here. My family had no idea the fi...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #86: "Louie, the Lilac": Please Omit Important Scenes

Yet another great show, guys. Paul, your "sitcom misogyny" was on target; Gordon is so dismissive of Barbara's concerns, I almost expected him to pat her on the head, saying, "There, there, Barbara. Perhaps you need some warm milk?" , with O'Hara adding, "Sure'n she does, Commissioner!" . I know the...

Re: "Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights"

Sure there’s a disclaimer that the book is for adults, but that audience is people who were children when the show was first on and that is gonna have an effect on them and how they will judge you. I think that would have an effect if the viewer grew up thinking the actors and their characters were...

Re: "Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights"

He was obviously just piggy backing West's "Return to the Bat-Cave". Ward has a right to tell is own story whether West had a book out or not. No one knows the motives behind such work. And it was all just awful. Too much, "I really love the guy but" ... then an attempt make Adam West look cheap, s...

Re: "Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights"

Long before the DVD set emerged, I videotaped the entire series off TV Land in the early 2000's. They would play back-to-back episodes for an hour. As the credits for the first episode were running, a voice from TV Land would come on and give various bits of Bat-trivia. Ah, I remember the TV Land t...
