As an aside, did anyone ever notice Neil Hamilton start laughing after Robin's answer of "A sparrow with a machinegun" to one of the Riddler's riddles? He starts out serious but then looks at Burt Ward with a short laugh and look like "What a ridiculous answer" while Burt Ward is looking so serious. It's a hoot!
So is the double-take Burt gives Adam up in the helicopter when Adam salutes the police officers standing so respectfully on the ground with hats over hearts looking up at the Batcopter. Burt's look is like - "What? You think they can see you way up here?" Too funny!
Lastly, in the Batboat scenes, in the front-on close-ups, why is the ocean background black and white? Even in 1966 this was really obvious and probably perceived as cheap-looking by older moviegoers. Couldn't the studio have sprung for some color footage? I mean, all they had to do was pay someone to set up a camera on the back of a speedboat and boot around for 10 minutes off the coast!
My explanation for it is that they had Lee do a short promo video for the movie on the Wayne Manor set (you can find it on Youtube). Obviously they just took a photo of her at the same time and used it for her "official criminal" photo. I think this was due to the fact that Lee was a late addition to the cast and they didn't have a lot of time to set up a proper shot of her. If you notice, Catwoman is missing from some of the early scenes that had the other three criminals. There is no logical reason for her not to be in these scenes so one has to assume Lee wasn't available yet when they shot them.
The Automatic Costume Changer switch was the explanation! Back in those days, that's the only logic that was necessary to explain to young kids!NX01JB wrote:Was any explanation ever given to how they changed clothes?

Are you implying that they really didn't have an Automatic Costume Changer?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?Batfanman wrote: The Automatic Costume Changer switch was the explanation! Back in those days, that's the only logic that was necessary to explain to young kids!
As others pointed out, the Catwoman shot was from the trailer, but the image was used for Gordon's screen.Yellow Oval wrote:I was watching it the other night and something struck me odd When they are in the Commissioner's office looking at the TV monitor showing known super-criminals at large, how come Batman and Robin don't wonder why Catwoman's photo was taken in Bruce Wayne's study? I see the Joker, Penguin, and Riddler's photos were taken in Miss Kitka's apartment in front of the dining room table and curtain and that sort of makes sense, but how did Catwoman manage to get her pic in the "secured" room so close to the Batpoles that even Aunt Harriet is not allowed into? And who would've taken the picture? Does that mean TWO villains having snuck into Wayne Manor? That and they would've had to have seen the Bat-phone!
A side note: you wonder how Catwoman had her photo taken so close to the study, but the bigger security question is how often villains (& Gordon) found their way into the Batcave...
Wondering why Lee's Catwoman isn't wearing her necklace like Julie's and Eartha's did.
Since the release of the Catwoman action figure I've been thinking about this necklace a lot, as Julie's wore it draped over her frilly collar, dangling longer, and Eartha wore it spread around the collar of the costume, sitting across her chest. Lee doesn't have the necklace at all. Possibly the necklace wasn't a permanent part of the costume at this point since Julie Newmar had only done one installment in season one as Catwoman?
And is there any rhyme or reason as to when Catwoman wears the claw-tipped gloves versus the regular gloves? Are they reserved only for when Catwoman is anticipating a battle?
I'm very glad they didn't do this. I can't imagine any way that this would have not looked silly.Hecate1966 wrote:My question: Although I can't find a copy at the moment I'm sure I remember seeing a storyboard for the scene in the submarine where United Underworld are all looking through the periscope. Catwoman (front and center with her back to us) had a tail: does anyone know if this was ever considered an option for Lee's suit?
