Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #107: Archie Meets Batman, We Meet a Listener

I’ll send you $500 via Patreon and donate an additional $500 to a children’s charity of your choice if you promise to never read another High C comment, email, or thought on your podcast again. I’m not kidding. I’ll even splash the cash in advance. I can’t abide the guy. Apparently this post alread...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #109: Louie the Lilac baffles, Bat-conference informs

FWIW, Atsumi, who was credited as Nobu McCarthy throughout her career, even after her marriage to her first husband was over, was contracted for only two days of the three-day shoot. Still, Nobu did a promo photo session in costume, one pic of which was reproduced in Joel Eisner's original Bat-book ...

Re: Script: THE SECRET OF THE IMPOSSIBLE CRIMES, by Leonard Stadd

I'd like to reiterate that once I got past the obvious missteps by the scripter, I thought the arc had a workable plot with decent motivations for Joker, certainly better than much of the silliness of seasons 2 and 3. Put it this way--I am at a loss to understand why this one was tossed and the Jay...

Re: "Batman Encounters King Kong" (June 1966)

Dozier at bare minimum would have had to go through RKO-General and while they might have signed off, there would have been fees involved. That would have been a $$$ problem for Dough-zier. Thanks to the OP for the research. It seems like Dozier really was getting full of himself around this time a...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #107: Archie Meets Batman, We Meet a Listener

On the whole, I've been disappointed in the '66 comics series because for the most part, they play it safe. They take few chances and make it like comfort food. But that is the idea of a licensed tie-in. To stay recognisably in the realms of the parent series. Maybe so, but the animated '66 films t...

Re: Courtroom scenes and other bat-law questions

Here is the wikipedia summary of Ernesto Miranda's troubled life and his landmark case. FWIW, the Supreme Court decision came down on June 13, 1966, in between the first and second seasons.

Re: Courtroom scenes and other bat-law questions

Great idea for a show! As I indicated before, can Dozier's pardon be revoked under 'crimes versus humanity' for the 'lyrics' to the Batgirl theme? Well, when they had to split up the Egghead-Olga trilogy into two parts and a later episode, one of the "covering" scenes they shot for "The Ogg Couple" ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #107: Archie Meets Batman, We Meet a Listener

Judging by the lack of comments, it's obvious very few people on this board read this crossover. On the whole, I've been disappointed in the '66 comics series because for the most part, they play it safe. They take few chances and make it like comfort food. As Paul and Tim noted, Siren was given lit...

Re: Script: THE SECRET OF THE IMPOSSIBLE CRIMES, by Leonard Stadd

Some terrific comments here already. Not much I can add, but I'll try. I had the same thought as gothos mansion, that Stadd's association with Man From UNCLE influenced him writing the Daphne character. As he noted, UNCLE used a plot device called 'the innocent,' a guest star, usually a woman, who s...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #108: The William Dozier Fanboy

Producers such as Quinn Martin and even Irwin Allen (who had three of his four 60's sci-fi series all running during the 1966-67 season) tapped into new ideas, or took existing concepts in fairly new directions. That was not Dozier. He either bought into ideas that were long past their shelf life, ...

Re: April 1966 article on Frank Gorshin

Great detective work by Dr. Shimel and epaddon. Again, it's interesting to see how Gorshin was approaching the role. Despite his amount of guest-star appearances by then, he still had the reputation of being an impressionist before anything else. Note how, in this memo that Oscar Lilley passed along...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #108: The William Dozier Fanboy

This is one of my favorite episodes. Oscar was a terrific guest and I learned a lot. Interestingly, although he again debunked the fourth season myth, he gave credence to something else I always thought was a myth. It was fascinating to hear that Dozier's original plan included re-editing episodes i...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES podcast #106: The Funny Script Felonies (w/John S. Drew!)

Another terrific podcast. Tim, I hope you are enjoying your visit to The States. John S. Drew made a funny reference to how the part 2 rewrite was Shakespeare compared to the earlier versions. You guys have a good chemistry with him, but will you ever be on his show? Then again, Batman never appeare...
