Re: Famed designer Nolan Miller freelanced on Batman

Yes, I see the confusion. The video at the top is Pt. 8 of 12 of Miller's interview but the video that contains his remarks about "Batman" is Pt. 5 of 12 of the overall interview at the 7:45 mark and when you hit the hot link further down the page you're being taken to the spot in Part 5 w...

Batman Influence in 1966 Nancy Sinatra Performance

Here's an example of how much the Batman phenom was sweeping the nation during Season 1. May 1966, Nancy Sinatra perform the title song from her movie "Last Of The Secret Agents" (which she appeared in with the comedy team of Marty Allen and Steve Rossi) on the "Ed Sullivan Show"...

NY Daily News-August 15, 1967 (Visit to Bat Set)

NY Daily News TV critic Kay Gardella visited the "Batman" set during the filming of "The Ogg Couple" (erroneously titled "Odd Couple" in the article) and wrote this feature where she interviewed both Anne Baxter and Neil Hamilton. Baxter describes how much she enjoyed t...

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...

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%...
