Did You Know?


In this penultimate Bat-adventure, Dr. Cassandra releases six Arch-Criminals from Gotham State prison: The Riddler, The Penguin, The Joker, Catwoman, King Tut and Egghead. However none of them are played by the usual guest actors. For one thing it would be too expensive to feature them all at the same time. Note that their faces are never clearly seen, they have no lines (other than the Riddler's giggle and Penguin's squawk reused from earlier appearances) and Catwoman resembles the Julie Newmar version instead of season three's Eartha Kitt.

Chief O'Hara: Oh, they should be coming through that door right now.

"26 eyewitnesses who didn't see a thing?"
3 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

"The Entrancing Dr. Cassandra" introduces the enchanting actress-turned-TV director Ida Lupino as the title character, a frustrated alchemist carrying on the cursed family business with the help of husband Cabala, played by Ida's real life spouse Howard Duff (apparently Liz and Dick were out of William Dozier's price range!). Not only do they commit a series of robberies while invisible, they also use an unpatented Alvino Ray gun to make two dimensional cardboard cutouts of Batman, Robin, and Batgirl. Watching Batgirl shimmy and shake while exclaiming, "I feel like I'm getting flat" is alone worth the price of admission, followed as it is by Cabala's deadpan quip: "what a pity!" For an ultra low budget capper, the restored Caped Crusaders battle a room full of invisible arch criminals set loose at Warden Crichton's prison (David Lewis in the last of his eight appearances). Although none of the original actors were cast, Joker, Penguin, Riddler, King Tut, Egghead, and the Julie Newmar Catwoman gather together one last time, under the auspices of Dr. Cassandra Spellcraft. An intriguing sidenote has Batgirl finally getting to see what the Batcave looks like, before the final showdown. With little money to go all out, the third season will end with a decided whimper rather than a bang.
