Around the time of Batman, she also appeared in another Fox film, The St. Valentine's Day Massacre, as the, well, moll of gangster George Segal.
I liked her portrayal of Polly. I felt like Hale put more on the screen than was on the page. She certainly was the epitome of the stunning ice blonde, but she wasn't just trying to get by on her looks. She met Coleman in an acting workshop.
The fact that the news didn't come out until almost two months after she died makes me wonder if there are some molls and bit player types whom we won't hear about at all when they're gone. But that is a separate issue.
Rest easy, Jean.
My hobbies include gazing at the Siren and doing her bidding, evil or otherwise.

One of my favourite Jean Hale roles is in an episode of The Smothers Brothers 1965/6 sitcom (where she throws a girl in a swimming pool). And I love her part in "The St Valentine's day massacre."
What a wonderful memory.

I wore those tapes out over the years, they were how I fell in love with the show. I must have seen Jean's performance hundreds of times at this point. Rest in peace Jean!
