Can I admit this? One of my guilty pleasures it to watch the "60s" Batman movie. It makes me laugh a lot and is something that is innocent so you can watch it with the young kids. I think Adam West new this was a big joke and played his character just right. Don't forget to pack your anti shark repellent.

Haha, you gotta love Cesar Romero's Joker make-up painted over his mustache.

"Have you heard this joke, Batman? It'll KILL YOU, bwahahaha!"

The only thing wrong with this movie was no Julie Newmar. Sigh...

Speaking of Cesar's mustache, check this out. Gotta love the guy.





By way of batmania.com/ar.

I'm actually a fan across his career, which goes waaay back. His second role was in The Thin Man, from 1934. Via Aveleyman.com






And from 1941's Tall Dark and Handsome, via I'll Keeep You Posted.

[Mark] "Some days, you just can't get RID of a ticking bomb!"

In an interview on the bonus material Adam West was asked about that scene. His response with a big smile was, "I hope it doesn't reflect on my entire career." What a great remark.

[Stephen Smith] "I think Adam West new this was a big joke and played his character just right."

Adam West loved that role and played it for kids everywhere, even when he was not on-set or in costume.

A friend of mine when we were kids in a band, told me of a time that he was in a roadside diner out in the California desert. Adam West was at a table eating and every kid in the place was looking at him and knew who he was.

Upon finishing his meal and paying the waitress, he jumped out out of his booth, began talking on his non-existent wrist radio, and began talking to the police that he would be there in a few minutes to assist them in taking down the criminals.

He ran out of the restaurant and jumped into his car and peeled away, to the delight and cheers of every kid in the place.

I liked Adam West 10-times more after hearing that story.

My friend told me that he and his brothers never missed an episode of Batman on TV, after that encounter.

I wouldn't have either.

I am happy to report that my DVD of the Batman movie sits happily on my shelf right next to Spaceballs.

When I was a kid I used to wake up at 6:30 on Saturday mornings in order to be ready for back to back episodes of Batman at 7am. Between 6:30 and 7 I discovered my love for another great show - This Old House. I never would have met Norm, Tommy, Richard and at the time Bob Vila had it not been for Adam West.

I believe 8am brought Superfriends - kind of hokey in hindsight but great times back in the day.
