Bob Kane's collaborator Bill Finger scripts his only two parter
10 May 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Clock King's Crazy Crimes" marked the only two part episode scripted by Bill Finger, who helped Batman creator Bob Kane develop the character, in collaboration with Charles Sinclair, later responsible for cult movies "The Green Slime" and "Track of the Moon Beast." Walter Slezak makes for a weak villain in The Clock King, but supplied the internationally known actor required for the role, with Michael Pate, an excellent actor, awkwardly cast as bumbling assistant Second Hand Three. With time of the essence, the Dynamic Duo have to contend with CK's alter ego of Progress Pigment, 'king of Pop Art,' his masterpiece 'Time Out of Joint' designed to achieve his ultimate goal at the Parkhurst Galleries, drilling a hole in the wall to allow him access to steal a priceless painting. The highlights find the Caped Crusaders dining on Batburgers at a local drive-in, and a special Batclimb cameo from Sammy Davis Jr. (rehearsing in the same building where Clock King is hiding out!). Herbert Anderson (DENNIS THE MENACE) would also be cast in a third season episode, "A Horse of Another Color." The death trap is a gigantic hour glass, the sands of time running out for our heroes, stripped of their handy utility belts: "some people kill time but this time, time is going to kill you!"
