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

Thanks for another thought-provoking show! I also thought the '66 comic imprint had a promising debut, but it fizzled out, IMO, other than some decent crossovers. Here is where I thought they went wrong: 1--Unlike issue #1, many of the issues featured two stories. Thus, we were back to the same old ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #134: What’s My Crime? Bob Dozier’s Joker Drafts

In the "Joker's Utility Belt" comic, the Joker has a conveyor belt that leads into a giant Joker face, and the Joker mouth is a furnace. His utility belt is also red in the comic, which may be where that bit came from. Joker managing to take off Batman's belt and replace it with another belt must m...

Re: Joan Collins' stand-in

That's a very interesting photo. Do you know where it originates from? Any stories? I bought it as part of a lot of 12 contact sheets I purchased in 2000. It was taken on Aug 8, 1967, the third day of the Wail of the Siren shoot. The way it worked was that they brought in freelance photographers an...

Re: RIP Adam West

I have to say, it still is rough. I'll admit, and I didn't want to say it here, it troubled me when I heard the clips from the second animated '66 movie and Adam sounded, well, kind of frail. But he was in his late 80s and Mother Nature and Father Time both remain undefeated, so I merely chalked it ...

Re: Eddie Hice, 1930-2015

Eddie Hice is Guinea Pig #1 and Guy Way is Guinea Pig #2 in the 1966 "Batman" movie. (Eddie was the Riddler's stunt double in the TV series and Guy was King Tut's.) Thanks for the IDs. I must be completely honest about it--If I applied to the United Underworld and they told me all the 'henchman' po...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast -- A contrary view of "Marsha, Queen of Diamonds"

Bumping this up from the archives for two reasons: 1--I wasn't yet listening to the show at the time (Holy Dereliction of Bat-Duties) and 2--I now know the reason for the four 'suitors' in giant birdcages. Zsa Zsa Gabor was on her fifth husband at that point, and the character originally had been wr...

Re: Bat Tours - The Batcave

Great video, Scott! Quick question--if you had made a different turn in Griffith Park, is it correct to assume you would have been at the location of King Tut's Sphinx, Louie's Flower-In, etc.?
