Trivia

The character Simon Trent who played the Gray Ghost on the old TV show is voiced by Adam West who played Batman in Batman (1966). The plight of character Simon Trent is a close parallel to real-life actor Al Hodge, who starred in the popular 1950's TV show Captain Video and His Video Rangers (1949), but died in 1979 in both poverty and obscurity.

Adam West (TV's Batman) Is Back! Best Episode I've Seen So Far
7 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There was no mistaking the first time the voice of "The Grey Ghost" was heard on this episode: it was "Batman," back again! Well, the television Batman, Adam West. What a hoot! It must have been great fun and nostalgia for him to come back, even though only his voice is heard. It just made this episode special....in fact, maybe the best!

The story is just dripping with nostalgia and sentiment and I loved every minute of it. We see Bruce Wayne as a little kid watching his hero "The Gray Ghost" on a black-on-white TV set. The ironic thing - and I doubt if it was an accident - was West's character, "Simon Trent," being an actor out of work and unable to get roles because he was typecast earlier in his career. Ya think there was a connection there? Yeah.

Anyway, it would good to see Batman working with his childhood idol to foil "The Mad Bomber." There is lots of action, great drawings and memorable material. Great stuff.

This is a real jewel in this Batman series. It will be hard to top.
