I had been meaning to rewatch these Boone interviews. They definitely seem to be from a better source copy than the messy versions I have saved from a number of years ago - thanks for re-sharing AP.

I actually talked about these photos taken at the premiere that showed up a while ago on Facebook. The appearance was described as being "Batman", no mention of Adam West. I'm pretty sure it's Hubie Kerns. There is another from this appearance taken straight on with Batman standing up in the Batmobile and the utility belt is drooping so you can see the velcro.

I do believe that's Hubie, but I don't think this is Austin, as to my knowledge that event took place during the daylight hours, Adam was in attendance in costume and also, perhaps more importantly the Batmobile was not present in Texas for the premiere.

I need to do some more digging, but i'm thinking that this was most likely an LA event that Adam was unable to attend perhaps.

That is some really cool footage. Are those the actual actors?
