I'll be there with director, James Tooley, to do a Q&A after the screening of STARRING ADAM WEST. Should be a great day! Hope some other board members can make it!

So amazing. I wonder if anyone will ever commission a statue like the ones TVLand used to do. I live in Boston, so I've seen the Bewitched statue in Salem, and have been to New York and have seen the Ralph Kramden in front of the Port Authority. A field trip to Walla Walla to see a Batman statue? :)

Sorry it took me so long to post some pics, but ADAM WEST DAY in Walla Walla was amazing. The city went all out and the entire community paid tribute to him.

Not only did the family receive the key to the city, but we got to tour Adam's boyhood home, and the city renamed the street he grew up on in his honor.

We capped it off by shining the Bat-signal on the city's tallest building. Hopefully, it will be an annual event, and next year we'll be celebrating the unveiling of Adam West Park and the statue of Adam there, designed by our own, Ruben Propocio!

Great pictures, Ralph! Really love Ruben's concept sketch for the statue too.
