Re: TO THE BATPOLES #148: Washburn II: Meet the Stars!

The existence of the Washburn film makes me wonder if anyone else (in the 60s) attempted to produce their own. I'm sure there was plenty of interest in doing so at the time, but getting ahold of the equipment to do it wasn't the easiest thing in the world. Imagine how many bat-videos there would be...

TO THE BATPOLES #147: Stanford Sherman’s letters and Batman ’66 #5

https://deconstructingcomics.com/Batpoles/shermanletters-comicseartha.jpg Most TV writers don’t become stars. If we’re fans of a show they wrote for, we probably know their names, but nowhere online can we find most writers’ photos or dates of birth, let alone anything about their inner thoughts. E...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #146: An Early Batman '66 Fan Film, Revealed!

I have these questions: 1--What was it about the show that motivated them to do all this? What did they enjoy so much about it? 2--Did they 'get it,' the vibe of the show, right away? I mean, was the idea for their own film there pretty soon after the premiere or was it a gradual momentum after the...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #145: “Batman: The Movie”: What is “the director’s input”?

Ben, Thanks for all the bat-facts - makin' us feel like rank Bat-amateurs :) - Tim mentioned Einser's remark about the movie being written before the series, that I believe features both in his book and in his TTBP blog entry - it's a tidbit that gets regurgiatated regularly over time.
