Did You Know?


Burt Ward suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns in this episode as the special effects crew took little precaution in ensuring the safety of others. The first evidence of this injury is revealed during the first scene in which cynical reporter Nellie Majors makes an appearance at a press conference in the Commissioner's office. At the beginning of this scene - as you'll notice in retrospect - Adam West is positioned so that he's standing in front of Burt Ward, obscuring the view of Ward's right arm. At one point, West steps forward to receive Mr. Freeze's delivery of "green ice"; as he does so, Ward's right arm is in plain view, and it can be clearly seen that a heavy gauze pressure bandage is wrapped around the length of his forearm, from wrist to elbow. Throughout the rest of this two-parter, both West and Ward are clearly maneuvering to hide this bandage, but it is accidentally revealed in several other scenes, including the ending shot of the Dynamic Duo in the City Hall elevator.

Otto Preminger the definitive Mister Freeze
15 May 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Green Ice" marked the return of Mister Freeze, the former Doctor Shivel who was accidentally doused in freezing solution by Batman and must now live in conditions of 50 degrees below zero. With original Freeze George Sanders unavailable, tyrannical director Otto Preminger virtually begged for the part, and of the three actors who played the role, truly does embody the character better than Sanders or Eli Wallach. This also qualifies as the best plot of the three two parters, Freeze still out to destroy Batman, but also to tarnish his crime fighting reputation by sending him 'green ice' (cold cash) in Commissioner Gordon's office, right in front of grand standing reporter Nellie Majors from the Gotham City Herald (Marie Windsor). The appearance of taking a bribe produces damning headlines, but when Bruce Wayne and his guests are robbed by the frozen fiend during a dinner party, a phony Batman and Robin show up to confirm that the Dynamic Duo is on his crooked payroll. Mister Freeze has also kidnapped beauty queen Miss Iceland (Dee Hartford), intending to bring her temperature down to his level, assuming that would make her better able to become his bride. His ultimate goal is to have the citizens of Gotham City fear and despise Batman as they despise him, but the untimely arrival of the Caped Crusaders force him to implement his plan to transform the pair into Frosty Freezies. This is not the time to chill out! The nearly 40 year old Dee Hartford, older sister of Eden Hartford (Groucho's third wife) displays a fabulously stunning figure in her one piece bathing suit, while Byron Keith makes the sixth of his ten appearances as Mayor Linseed. Like the Sanders two parter from the first season, this was scripted by Max Hodge, the only ones he wrote for the series.
