Re: Batman music in Elvis film?

it's certainly what I would call "evocative" of "Batman" music, at least during the Nelson Riddle period. But there are some music cues in the TV series "Emergency" that I swear are identical to some from " Batman. " They were also the work of Riddle, so no one was "stealing" per se, though I rememb...

Re: Robin, Batgirl and Vietnam

Yes, but you’re assuming it doesn’t. We don’t know exactly what the original source was, so I’m not willing to discount it so quickly. You could be right...but the source could be right, too. It’s definitely something that deserves further research. Hey, if somebody's willing to research it, I'm wi...

Re: Robin, Batgirl and Vietnam

Well,I don't know how deep I want to get into that, but I will agree that the need to generate new content 24/7 for cable and internet has definitely led many of the more "mainstream" media outlets to adopt the "shoot from the hip" tactics of the old Hollywood tabloids. "Wait for the facts" definite...

Re: Robin, Batgirl and Vietnam

Yes, but you're assuming this publication knows what it's talking about. It also says Batman "hires" Batgirl, which is frankly beyond imagining. My assertion is this publication learned exactly two actual facts: (1) something was filmed with a character named "Batgirl" and (2) an actress named Yvonn...

Re: Robin, Batgirl and Vietnam

It seems unlikely anyone in charge at "Batman" would've shared this kind of behind-the-scenes reasoning with a trade paper, though it's always possible someone further down the food chain had a big mouth. What seems more likely to me is that someone somewhere got wind of the pilot/extended screen te...

Re: Wish I Could Afford This

Yes, credit where it's due: they did try. Here's the thing, though: the animation itself is crude, even by Bob Kane standards. Any attempt at complete faithfulness would result in a product that looked too slapdash to appeal, but any measures taken to pretty it up make it inaccurate. You can't win. ...

Re: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm returns to theaters

It didn't stick around much longer than a day the first time, either. I saw it with my then-girlfriend (now wife) and besides us there were maybe three other people in the theater, all kids. Warner totally dropped the ball on promotion. Still the best bat-movie I've seen in the big screen, though in...

Re: Wish I Could Afford This

I considered them at the time and decided they didn't look enough like the title animation to justify the expense. Without the logo bases, I'm not sure anyone would make the connection.

Re: Behind the scenes footage on ebay!!!

That is a great point. And for them to not have sound makes it even stranger to me. I know next to nothing of studio operations, but the compilation of what seems fairly useless stuff does seem very odd. As far as the sound issue goes, I'm pretty sure it was still standard practice in the 60s to sh...
