Re: Did Any of the Villains Scare You?

False Face scared me, but I loved the episode for that very reason!

Re: Adam West on PBS, January 29

I just saw it, and it was enjoyable, though I think I learned more about the other shows than I did about Batman , since I know so much about the 1966 series. I did catch the mistake about the number of episodes for each show, of course. Decent show, though it did not go so much in depth as I would...

Re: Happy B-Day to the 1st BATMAN

I know I am late in posting this, but I also send my greetings to Mr. Wilson! IMDB.com has him listed as being born in 1920, but no matter. The father of James Bond producer Michael Wilson, he was a major inspiration for me when it came to playing the Caped Crusader for my fan film. Here's thinking...

Re: I will be resuming filming

Is there a dvd of Batman 1969 available to purchase anywhere Tim? Send me a PM with your address, and I'll burn you one. I cannot sell them, given the rights that DC Comics has. Anyone who wants a DVD can give me a holler! Good luck old chum Which villains are in it? We'll just have a bunch of stre...

Re: Where is everyone?

Even before we made the switch to the new board, I think Facebook was taking away from the board. The September switchover, plus a couple of other things, also likely put a damper on the board. But if nothing else, we should start thinking of the 50th anniversary of the board. There is already a gr...

Two birthdays today (16 January)

We have birthdays today for two notable supporting players in the 1966 series: Lola Lasagne herself, Ethel Merman, was born on this day in 1908 in Astoria, Queens, NY. This musical comedy star on Broadway was one of the most established performers to ever become a moll, and was paired with the able...
