Trivia

Frank Gorshin, the Riddler, stirred up trouble again with fellow "Batman" villain Julie Newmar in 'Return to the Batcave'. The movie was a reunion of sorts not only for the cast, but the crew as well. The Director of Photography for 'Return to the Batcave', Jim Glennon, was the assistant cameraman on the 1966 series. And Casey O. Rohrs served as the Editor for the movie because his father edited the original series. See more »

An enjoyable biography/parody.
9 March 2003 | by mack3175See all my reviews

Lots of biography movies are not always laughable. But this one is every bit has laughable. The old Batman was campy, and this movie tries to be campy and funny has it was in the sixties. Adam West and Burt Ward seem to enjoy making fun themselves. They are at a Batman convention. But get pulled into action, when someone steals the batmoblie. During that time they remember the time on the set of Batman. A pure delight for Batman fans.
