Re: SCRIPT: The Penguin Goes Straight

An additional observation that has nothing to do with the scripts: In the scene in part 2 when Penguin and Sophia Starr visit GCPD HQ and accuse Gordon and O'Hara of sheltering fugitive Batman and Robin, Ms. Starr's outfit, with the pillbox hat and shawl, made her strongly resemble a character in a...

Re: SCRIPT: The Penguin Goes Straight

Really, I didn't see a lot of changes from the February 2, 1966 version credit to Lorenzo Semple and the version that aired. I haven't watched the episode in a while, but this gives me an excuse to watch it again. :D I was afraid I wouldn't have time to watch it before your Sept. 2 deadline or I wou...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #140 Julie and Eartha: Two Cat-egories of Catwoman

Well, I do like Vincent Price...but Goldfinger is one of my favorite movies ever. I would recommend they watch The Abominable Dr. Phibes or Theatre of Blood before I would recommend the Dr. Goldfoot movies. :D The Abominable Dr. Phibes is a good movie, but I haven't seen it in quite a while. All th...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #140 Julie and Eartha: Two Cat-egories of Catwoman

Of course, since you didn't know what Bond movie Ms. Galore was in, you obviously aren't fans of the series. I order you to drop what you're doing and go watch Goldfinger RIGHT THIS MINUTE!!!!!!! I misread this the first time and thought you wanted them to go watch Goldfoot, as in Dr Goldfoot and w...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #140 Julie and Eartha: Two Cat-egories of Catwoman

I think you guys summed it up nicely. Julie's Catwoman is more memorable because she got to play a wider range of emotions. Julie was always an engaging performer, suited to a wide variety of roles. In one way her looks may have worked against her. Since Julie is so stunningly beautiful, a lot of pe...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #137: Yvonne Craig: We get a kick out of this memoir

so she struck up a conversation with one of Elvis' "henchmen" (did they wear black turtlenecks with the titles of Elvis songs in white lettering on their chests?) Enter "Hound Dog," "Devil In Disguise," and ... "A Big Hunk of Love"? Burning Love was the name of the song, to be fair, as in 'I'm just...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #137: Yvonne Craig: We get a kick out of this memoir

Interesting episode, guys. Some fans have complained about the nature of some of the stories in Ward's book, but Craig's book was in extended orbit of that "world" by claiming that she dated Elvis while he was married. Some might say "well, she's just telling the truth" , but the nature of what she...

Found the newsstand issue in a comic shop dollar bin. Direct market issue arrived today from Evilbay. https://dc.fandom.com/wiki/Detective_Comics_Vol_1_554 Congrats on the pick-up, Keith.

Re: RIP Denny O'Neil

I started collecting in 1976 and first discovered some of Denny's great earlier stories via Treasury Edition. DC picked some really great O'Neil stories to spotlight in those, and he quickly became one of my favorite Batman writers. I got to collect some (and would have collected all, if not for spo...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #135: Batman ’66 Comics, the Gray Ghost, and Nostalgia

Hi Guys. As always, thanks for the show. I had no idea how long traffic cones have been around, since I've only been around since 1971. According to this, cones have been around since the 1940s, and I think they've been on the highway I had to drive to get to work since then. Yes, I love working fro...

Re: One:12 Collective Superman - 1978 Edition

Thanks for sharing. I have fond memories of seeing the first two Christopher Reeve movies in the theatre.

Just because we're Batman fans doesn't mean we aren't Superman fans, too. After all, if Superman hadn't been so successful when he debuted, there probably wouldn't be a Batman.

Re: BAT 77 Podcast - Asylum of the Futurians (Batman #229)

Sorry to take so long to comment. I'm not surprised that Barr wrote a letter praising this story. Barr wrote a text piece for my favorite treasury, Batman's Strangest Cases. There he highlighted "Other Strange Cases of the Batman" and this is one of the issues he mentioned. He made the story sound v...
