Re: BAT 77 Episode #01 - The Gosh-Darned Bat Mite

I always figured it was the ADR that made Adam's West''s voice the way it was. I can't and won't compare those with the two movies. But that Batman in 1977 (and Robin as well) was played straighter than in the 60's live action show. It's a shame they couldn't do the Batfights, but I guess that's wh...

Re: Neil Hamilton's Birthday?

He'd been a matinee idol! He hit his marks & knew his lines. In his book, West said words to the effect that although not a demonstrative man, he felt Hamilton was fond of him. There were tons of wonderful actors milling around in 1966. What a time to be a casting agent. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/52...

Re: RETURN TO THE BATCAVE movie

produced by DAWN WELLS...and is fun to watch..Burt Ward said they left out how he and Bruce Lee were Sparring Partners.. That no one seems to recall but him. https://metvcdn.metv.com/XZVoY-1499359401-8928-list_items-burtward_karate_ap.jpg I thought it was great. A miracle it was ever produced. The ...

[quote="BATWINGED HORNET" post_id=63797 time=1536463646 user_id=261] The New Yorker has no bearing on Affleck's form--undeniably muscular--as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Dawn of Justice as seen in the column on the right-- Actually, quite deniably muscular !! http://thisrecording.files.wordpress.com/2008/...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

Mary Ann Mobley as Batgirl .... :) Myth or not? She certainly photographed well, and was womanly. More of a Bat-Woman than a Batgirl I guess. She might've changed the dynamic of the series. Who knows? As Batman said, who EVER knows? https://farm8.static.flickr.com/7332/11973390195_24ce207b0e_b.jpg

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

He wasn't better built than his comic book counterpart of the time, as seen in the 1960s comic book covers above. Yeah, the comic book Batman actually had a build comparable to other superheroes of the time. The comic version did not have thin arms or a paunch. the wold would not see anyone truly m...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

This quote is from the gothamalleys.blogspot. I love how comics fandom has in the last decade or so embraced the series they once scorned. http://gothamalleys.blogspot.com/2011/10/batmans-physical-appearance.html Adam West is the only actor to date to match Batman's 6'2 height in the comics. Also, w...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

Is all subjective whether or not West was fat, but visual evidence (including comparisons fro others of the same era) certainly shows he was not that muscular at all. :roll: Well yeah, subjective. Mike Henry was being positioned to play Batman in 1965. Compared to him, youth oriented 1960's film co...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

Adam West was big. All I was saying. At 6′ 2″ & 6′ 4″, the fights he & Cesar Romero had in the first season seemed almost in danger of knocking down the soundstage! No other actor other than West could have come across as well onscreen against the large & imposing former Latin lover Romero. Other a...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

The Green Hornet[/i] was cancelled after the most dismal ratings ABC TV had ever seen? Not even close to historically accurate. ABC was in last place among the networks for several years before 1966, with a number of series facing cancellation, whether they were on for one or more seasons, with TGH...

Re: "Myths" Surrounding The Show

There's always the Julie didn't appear in S3 because of McKenna's Gold myth... The "Batman is fat" was actually used as an early Joker insult: "Fatman and Boy Blunder" Or, MAD magazine's "Bats-Man" satire, and common to MAD's brand of it, artists would accentuate traits or features that were alread...
