Goofs

When Batman and Robin are analyzing the chemical contents of the "universal solvent" wax in the Batcave, the spectral lines indicate nitrogen, uranium, and sodium. Batman and Robin then deduce that this indicates "NUS" (from the first letters) and then they turn "NUS" backwards to get "SUN" which gives them the clue they need. The problem is that the symbol for sodium is not "S" but "Na", so the conclusion is invalid. See more »

The Riddler waxing wroth
19 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

"The Ring of Wax" was Frank Gorshin's third double act as The Riddler, and perhaps the best plot he worked with since the pilot. Having discovered a universal wax solvent that, when heated, will burn through any substance, the Prince of Puzzlers heads off to the public library to bore a hole in the safe door to obtain a rare volume on the lost treasure of the Incas: "the more you take away the larger it grows!" The Dynamic Duo track him back to his hideout in an abandoned candle factory, where they prepare to meet their doom above a vat of boiling wax, set to become a pair of human candles. Riddler's gorgeous moll Moth is played by blonde bombshell Linda Scott, his henchmen Michael Greene and Joey Tata (later seen opposite both Penguin and King Tut). This was the first appearance of Gotham City's as yet unnamed Mayor (Al McGranary), but for his next appearance in "The Joker Trumps an Ace" he would be played for the first time by Byron Keith. Librarian Elizabeth Harrower would be back in the same role in "Enter Batgirl, Exit Penguin."
