Trivia

Frank Gorshin, the Riddler, stirred up trouble again with fellow "Batman" villain Julie Newmar in 'Return to the Batcave'. The movie was a reunion of sorts not only for the cast, but the crew as well. The Director of Photography for 'Return to the Batcave', Jim Glennon, was the assistant cameraman on the 1966 series. And Casey O. Rohrs served as the Editor for the movie because his father edited the original series. See more »

Good Fun!
9 March 2003 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

I was laughing out loud with the story of "behind the scenes" of this classic TV show.

It was a good surprise. Very funny and interesting to find out how things developed in the '60s for this group.

Watching Adam West dancing the "Batusi" once more...priceless!
