Batman Influence in 1966 Nancy Sinatra Performance

Post by epaddon »

Here's an example of how much the Batman phenom was sweeping the nation during Season 1. May 1966, Nancy Sinatra perform the title song from her movie "Last Of The Secret Agents" (which she appeared in with the comedy team of Marty Allen and Steve Rossi) on the "Ed Sullivan Show" and the number is filled with "Batman" style visual F/X. ("Bang!" "BAM" "BLOOIE!")



Nancy Sinatra would have been a far more inspired choice to have appeared in one of the Season 3 "hippie" oriented episodes.

Cool find! Yes this music video was definitely influenced by '66 Batman. I wonder if she wanted to be on the show, and her father, Frank, was rumored also interested.

Thanks for sharing, epaddon! It's amazing to see how the Batman influence was so pervasive in 1966. It really gives one a small idea of what the phenomenon was like in real time.

Thanks for sharing that, epaddon! That is a nice bit of history regarding the '66 series' influence.
