Re: False Face - Should He Have Appeared More?

It's doubtful that would ever happen, simply because the producers of the Batman franchise over the past quarter century have focused on the comic book version, since the '66 fans don't fit their infamous marketing sweet spot. Besides, I can't picture anyone other than Victor Buono as King Tut, so a...

Re: If "1966" was ever released on DVD.....

I suppose they could do that, especially considering that a S3 release might not be a big seller, given the grade school production values and horrible scripts that abound during that final year.

Well, you've already had Tommy Lee Jones play Two-Face in the 1995(?) movie.

Re: Remembering Burgess Meredith

As a kid, I thought he was fabulous, though I confess I was more a Joker man. Penguin showed up too often, I thought at the time, and Gorshin's Riddler I just didn't "get" until I was older (now he's probably my favorite). Back in the ninties when the channel FX was like Nick at Night, one of the h...

Another great shot is this closeup from "The Curse of Tut" that shows off Victor Buono's blue eyes:

Of course, the fake Gordon had to lift himself over the railing so that he could fall to his "death" in the river

Yet they did show his name in the end credits of the second part:

Re: False Face - Should He Have Appeared More?

Malachi Throne was very much in demand as a character actor during the Batman era. From 1966-68, he was in 20 shows after playing False Face. In the last show, he was Robert Wagner's co-star on "It Takes a Thief." Also given his melifluous voice, he may have done commercials as well. In short, he j...

Re: False Face - Should He Have Appeared More?

Of course, the Big Four appeared MUCH MORE extensively: Riddler: 6 appearances Penguin: 10 appearances Joker: 10 appearances Catwoman: 8 appearances One or two appearances in S2 probably wouldn't have sent the character into the nosedive the others endured. Malachi Throne was very much in demand as ...

Don't forget "The Monkees"--in a cameo AS THE PENGUIN!

Re: The Penguin Goes Straight question

My take on it was it was set up by the Penguin in advance. I believe the TV show starts after Penguin puts his plan into action in order to to confound the viewers as much as the startled theatergoers. That seemed to be a familiar theme with the Penguin stories: in the election episode opening, he ...
