Storyline

Catwoman goes ahead with her scheme to steal several Batagonian Cat's Eye opals, but she has trouble finding someone to fence them since such rare stones would be easily spotted. With little recourse left, she decides to turn them in for the reward money. It seems like the perfect job for her acquaintance, Freddy the Fence. But when he notices that the gems are fakes, Catwoman realizes she has been tricked by Batman and vows to get revenge on the Caped Crusader once and for all. Written by Twenty Penguins

Trivia

If the living room to the model house looks familiar, it's because it is part of the set used as Brit Reid's house in The Green Hornet (1966). See more »

Goofs

When Batman cut Robin free from his bonds by using the Batknife, he made amazingly short work of the job - especially considering the fact that he was holding the knife upside down and "cutting" the rope with the blunt edge! See more »

Julie Newmar's bittersweet farewell
17 May 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Batman Displays His Knowledge" opens with the Caped Crusader astutely holding out his bonds to allow the first trickle of sulfuric acid to burn through, giving him access to the Batarang, which he uses to simply shut off the control switch. Catwoman's ultimate crime is rather ho hum, stealing the entire collection of Batagonian cat's eye opals worth $12 million, so hot that not even French Freddy Touche aka The Fence (Jacques Bergerac, later seen in "Minerva, Mayhem, and Millionaires") would be able to hock them at any price (however, the reward stands at $3 million!). Batman rejoices in that the opals are also legendary in bringing bad luck to whoever chooses to steal them, his final encounter with Catwoman in a model house at the Sherlock Homes Real Estate Development. Here is our last bittersweet seduction between Cat and Bat, only her poisoned perfume won't work with Batman's special nose filters, the kitty sitting pretty behind bars once again. She does acknowledge to Bruce Wayne, her erstwhile parole officer, that she likes him: "you're nice, but my heart belongs to Batman." Considering that this would be Julie Newmar's final performance in the iconic role, it does seem to appear that writer Stanley Ralph Ross had managed to spread out the sexual tension as far as possible, maintaining a high standard for the second season, not possible with the new Catwoman next year, a total abomination unworthy of the name. Whitney Blake, mother of Meredith Baxter, appears only briefly as Amber Forever (the 1947 movie FOREVER AMBER directed by Mr. Freeze himself, Otto Preminger), with Stanley Adams as Captain Courageous forced to apologize for arresting Batman, and David Lewis making the sixth of his eight appearances as Warden Crichton.
