Re: TO THE BATPOLES #150: “The Astrologer”: The Proto-“Zodiac” Script

Seeing the original script kind of clarified for me why in the final three-parter Venus is a bit more schizoid in terms of jumping ship from starting to go sympathetic in the end of Part 1 to abruptly doing Joker's bidding again in Part 2 because the script was making of using Kandel's original scen...

Re: Skye Aubrey aka Princess Primrose R.I.P.

I'd forgotten she was married to Ilya Salkind, producer of the Superman movies (her mother Phyllis Thaxter played Martha Kent in the first Superman film).

Re: Ross's Revived "Ronald Raygun"

If SRR had written the episode where he made his unbilled cameo, the name of his character I am convinced would have been Ballpoint Penn.

Re: Casting Suggestions for '66 villians

Stanwyck would have been the perfect BW. And like Clu Gulager, she actually would have been available since there are a number of "Big Valley" episodes where she doesn't appear (a spotlight for another cast member) so working around that schedule wouldn't have posed the kind of problem tha...

Re: Casting Suggestions for '66 villians

Hench moll types (with the exception of Nancy Kovack) I just can't see as a lead female guest, especially when they have no resumes of being a lead in anything.

Re: Casting Suggestions for '66 villians

I prefer to take the approach of who falls into the plausible guest star realm. That means these criteria come into play when I envision fantasy casting ideas (and I claim this standard only for myself). 1-Was the performer active? 2-Was the performer "available" for TV guest shots? To me ...

Re: Inger Stevens signed to appear on show?

The episode title pun for the rumored Stevens appearance makes me think they were viewing her (if they were) not as a replacement CW but simply another original villainess to launch S2 in the tradition of all the male guest stars in new characters like Archer, Clock King etc. Clearly they would have...

Re: Batman scripts

You're right, my mistake there. I've gotten so many other scripts from them and along the way picked up other Bat scripts that I ended up merging the two together. As I recall other scripts were available for download because the Podcast people were making links available including earlier drafts. I...

"Batman Television Archives" Site On Internet Wayback

A few years back there was a website called ""The Batman Television Archives" that had a large number of primary source documents on the making of the series. The site has become defunct but I found out it is still accessible through the Internet Archive "Wayback Machine" co...

Re: Batman scripts

There are some scripts available for purchase as digital pdf files (they get sent to you by e-mail) from www.scriptcity.com. I also have uploaded my own personal scan of S1 "Fine Finny Fiends" (which is not available from Script City) https://www.dropbox.com/s/gj47xqs8r3s6ibu/Fine%20Finny%...

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

The Spiderman live action series has never gotten its proper due IMO. I really wish though they'd kept Joanna "Isis" Cameron who was great in the two part "Deadly Dust" episode. Although the episodes that were combined into syndicated two hour movies were released on VHS, the sho...

The first one was bad enough. Even worse was the "roast" special that aired next.

Re: Superman: The Movie Anniversary This Sunday 12/15/19

I remember seeing it theatrically at age nine. I can still remember the BIG audience laugh when Clark first takes a glimpse at the public telephone before he changes into Superman for the first time.

"Molly" in 70s Batman Comic Book!

Around 1975, there were three Batman comics (Batman #243-244 and Detective Comics #451) that featured a character named "Molly Post", a championship skiier who gets caught up in the action in the first Bat story and then appears again in a darker tale where she's the target of an assassin....
