Re: TO THE BATPOLES #132: Women of Season One: Not Just "Poor, Deluded Girls"

Now I’m not sure what we’re disagreeing about, BWH. Did I say in the podcast that sexist representations of female drivers were “growing” in number in the seventies? If so, I was wrong, but I don’t think I did. Also, I believe that stereotypical and progressive images of women can and do coexist in ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #132: Women of Season One: Not Just "Poor, Deluded Girls"

These representations of women drivers are comedy, true, and sometimes they flip the stereotypical hierarchy (viz. BRADY V. BRADY). My point is that such representations, even played for “pure” comedy, depend on a very recognizable trope of the “Bad Lady Driver” that saturated US mass culture (parti...

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

Thanks, Bob. The pleasure was all ours, and we’re grateful for all your diligent labor! As a film studies guy, I’m a huge fan of your 3D restoration work as well. I had no idea that CREATURE was one of yours; it’s on par with the 35mm “polarized” print I saw at the Music Box in Chicago back in the m...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #128: Roast Godzilla

BWH, I take your point about the offensiveness of Ghetto Man, including but not limited to the reasons you bring up here. But I think it's also important to take into account the terribly fine line that African American performers have had to walk when playing roles whites have written "for them" si...

That’s exactly the reprint set I’ve got!! Didn’t realize it was complete, which makes the news all the better.🥳

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #127: It’s a “Challenge” Just to Sit Through “Legends”

gothosmansion: I've read a few of the Wein/Wrightson Swampi stories and own reprints of the Englehart/Rogers DETECTIVE run (the highlights, anyway), but we are moving into post-'66 BATMAN/DETECTIVE as a podcast topic right now, so I'll finally crack those reprints open! I know, I know, we're just a ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #109: Louie the Lilac baffles, Bat-conference informs

:( Lord Death Man, you are right to call us on our non-discussion of Atsumi’s performance, as well as Lotus’s scientific prowess. She’s not even played stereotypically, beyond the association of “lotus” with “the Orient” and dangerous femininity (lotus flower as pretty poison). Discussing her would ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #104: Batman Returns ...and Kyle appears

...and then, Batman would tie himself to the hood of the Batmobile and compel Robin, his ears stuffed with Noiseproof Bat-Plugs, to drive him past Siren's apartment (or obvious, badly dressed soundstage?) as she sings her Emergency Broadcast System alarm. Quite the odyssey.
