Did You Know?
Why [producer William Dozier
] wanted me for Batman
(1966), I'll never know, because I asked his wife, Ann Rutherford
, "Why did Bill think of me for this part?". She said, "I don't know, Butch. He said he saw you in something, and he said, 'He's the one I want to play the Joker'." I haven't the slightest idea what it was he saw me in, because I had never done anything like it before.
Refused to shave off his trademark mustache when he played the role of the Joker on Batman
(1966). Close observation shows how the white clown makeup was applied right over his much loved mustache.
