Did You Know?


The original cowl Adam West wore in the 1966 Batman TV Series was stripped and recovered by the seamstress who made the cowl for Legends of the Superheroes. She neglected to take photos and worked from memory to make her cowl. When she made it, the neck was too short, the cowl was a different color, and there were different markings on the front.

Batman: Fellow Superheroes or, in deference to the ladies, Super Persons, we are gathered here tonight to pay tribute to one of our former colleagues, and perhaps the greatest Superhero of all. When many of us were, ahem, still in short leotards, this man was saving the world virtually single handedly. Lets have a warm, Super welcome for: Retired Man.

Hysterically Brilliant
29 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hysterically Brilliant, to me anyway. It is in the same vein as the 60's Batman show/movie and Super Friends, but there was possibly less money put towards effects. If you ever wanted to see Sinestro in drag, Solomon Grundy in "disguise", Hawkman not flying or speaking, Adam West staring at Black Canary's butt, and Huntress adding nothing constructive to the plot, this show is for you. Get some popcorn, but no milk in case you laugh at the unintentional funny. But if you like well-made movies with complex interesting plot lines and fine acting, you might want to buy Citizen Kane or something because you won't enjoy this.
