Re: SCRIPT: KING TUT'S COUP, a.k.a. TUT TUT TUT

I already have a problem with the Townsends' treatment--it refers to Cleopatra as 'the siren of all time.' High C demands a recount!! :cry:

Then again, it is dated June 1966, so those two poor deluded creatures can be forgiven for their lapse in judgment...

Re: Other Great 60s Shows...

Terrific idea for a thread, Andy. I'm sorry I'm late to the party but I wanted to bump it back up. Here are some of my favorites, some of which haven't been mentioned. In alphabetical order: Dragnet. Kind of inadvertently funny, especially when Jack Webb would give what he called the 'Jesus speech' ...

Re: Any Bowling Green lectures available?

As you probably are aware, it was discussed on the To The Batpoles podcast, starting at approximately 1:19:37. http://tothebatpoles.libsyn.com/109-louie-the-lilac-baffles-bat-conference-informs I can't help you on the last two, but it's my understanding the McVetta presentation was just a fanboyish ...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #112: Court BAT-tles: The Law on the '66 Show

This was an interesting podcast. Attorney Jim Dedman had many fascinating things to say about how '66 Batman was often off the mark in terms of legal issues. I'll admit it was disappointing to me that Siren wasn't referenced. I would liked to have heard Mr. Dedman's thoughts on how someone with Sire...

Re: Favorite Catwoman Actress?

This always is a fascinating topic. I'm on record many times on this board in expressing my distaste for the namby-pamby CW of season 2. Julie Newmar's season 1 arc is as good as it gets, but Stanley Ralph Ross softened the character so much in season 2 that she was a lot different than the Catwoman...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #111: "The Wrong Earth" and "The Batman Radio Show"

Fun show, guys. I was very engaged with the episode even with my lack of familiarity with The Wrong Earth. It was a lively and interesting discussion. Some comments: I liked Paul's comment on 'Winged Warhorse.' I definitely could hear Neil Hamilton saying that, yes. ... Tim's comment about the 'face...

Saw her birthday in the paper and thought of posting something. I knew you wouldn't let her down!
What are you talking about? I didn't post anything. The last thing I remember was getting a long-distance call from England, and hearing a strange dial tone... :?

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #110: "The Impossible Crimes": Semple holds Stadd’s Feet to the Fire

There were mentions on the podcast of Alfred donning the batsuit in the Archer episode, but what really gets me in light of Semple's notes on Stadd is the *second* time Alfred put on cape and cowl (and performed a batclimb!) to rescue Bruce and Robin in "The Joker's Epitaph." That was in the last b...

Happy birthday to The Siren

It already is May 24 across the pond where Joan Collins was born, but it still is May 23 here in the U.S., marking Joan Collins' 86th birthday. This is how she looked at an event last month. https://media.gettyimages.com/photos/joan-collins-attends-the-2019-met-gala-celebrating-camp-notes-on-at-pict...

INTERIOR--BATCAVE BATMAN: Robin, I've noticed something about two of our upcoming scripts. ROBIN: What is it, Batman?
