Re: Vintage Yvonne quotes from July 1967

Very interesting article! Since it was basically all promotion for season 3 of Batman, I doubt Yvonne's piece represented anything more than additional promotion. I would be very interested to hear Yvonne's response to the piece today - whether she'd disavow involvement or defend it. I am relatively...

Re: Catwoman and Riddler featured in first DC 1966 digital c

They're having variant covers for an online comic?! I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that's part of the tongue in cheek humor we're in store for. I don't so mind Catwoman turning on a fellow villain to save Batman - they could do that without turning her "good". I wouldn't ...

Re: Best Villain's Lair

I'd give runner-up to Black Widow for having the best exterior to her lair, but it's hard to beat the camera shots of the Riddler's gang running around elaborate, underground plumbing systems in the pilot

Re: 1966 Batman returns to a brand new comic!

I like the interview with the writer. It's great that he is looking for a season one feel to this series. It doesn't sound like it'll be treated specifically as season 4 or refer back to past episodes much, so not much concerned with continuity. Do we have an opinion on that either way? I wouldn't m...

Re: Rebooting Batman

If the 66' Batman was a reflection of the childish dopiness of the early 60's comics, wouldn't a reboot today need to be a parody of the dark, brooding violent Batman? I don't know how you do that, though, and make it something just suggests 'TV Series' instead of just a 10-minute 'skit'

Re: DC To Publish New Series Based On The Show

If they didn't acquire the rights to Joan Collin's likeness, the interesting question becomes can they still use the Siren character at all? If they were to depict the same hairdo with a slim (rather than round) face, would their lawyers still deem that too risky? Would they feel the need to totally...

Re: Batman And The Desilu Backlot

David's site mentions the burning Riddler's car creating a hotel fire - I wonder if that behind-the-scenes footage that surfaced several months ago (mostly of traffic crawling by the pilot's filming site) is only still around due to worries that the hotel would come after Greenway with legal action

Re: Batman And The Desilu Backlot

They had such a weird, disjointed business arrangement, maybe for all Greenway knew, the show was being filmed in Gotham City. Even David's site was calling it Culver Studios instead of Desilu. "A Greenway/20th Century Fox/Desilu" production - yeah, that could have created a delay on the DVD release:)

Re: Episode 120 guest stars

Hitchcock would have been a great cameo during season one or two! Though possibly that'd have a little too clever - taking it too far outside of what a child could recognize as an adventure story, (which they ahered to for the most part)

Re: Batman And The Desilu Backlot

Good point about Klink! Andy Grffith seems to have held such a stranglehold on all those exteriors that I'm surprised we didn't get cameos from his troupe. When one thinks of the possible walk-ons due to the actor's proximity (Captain Kirk, Mr.Phelps...), I don't know why we wound up with some of th...

Re: DC To Publish New Series Based On The Show

It is weird that all the illustrations I've seen so far are images DC always had the right to use (the Dynamic Duo and the well-stablished villains). I can't believe just having the Joker grow a mustache would cause DC any legal issues. But if it was being plugged at the merchandise party, their mus...

Re: DC To Publish New Series Based On The Show

Oh my gosh, this is awesome! Isn't this the biggest news we've had since "Return to the Batcave"? I agree with Kamdan that they will be making a mistake if they go solely for laugh-a-minute right out of the gate. One reason is that tongue-in-cheek comics hero are just not unique by 2013 (see Flaming...

Batman Goes West Concludes

My phony Viewmaster Batman story concludes over at the Batgirl-Battrap site. I will admit several aspects of the story are not completely true to the TV show. Dozier wouldn't have brought back specific henchmen characters from past episodes. The show's inattention to henchman was so pervasive it act...

Rights on "Fury of the Dragon"/"Green Hornet"

Anyone know what the rights situation is on the two "movies" that were released in the mid-70's to cash in on Bruce Lee's death? They were each 4 episodes of the show clumsily edited together. Since they were catering to the kung fu movie crowd, they borrowed brief segments from a variety of other e...
