This was actually shot in 1964, but it was deemed to be not fit for airing and was subsequently shelved. Four years later, when stars Adam West and William Shatner had each reached a certain level of fame to get respectable ratings for the show - West was in the throes of Batman-mania from the success of his Batman (1966) series and Shatner was the star of Star Trek (1966) - it was released as a made-for-TV movie.

Where can I get the original version of this pilot
I have not seen this film, but I truly would like to, as I was the main Belly dancer in it. Can anyone tell me where I can get a copy of it. I didn't even know who William Shatner or Adam West was at that time. The only person I knew was Joseph Cotton. Carey Leverette was the choreographer (may he rest in peace). Yes, even for the 60's it came across quite corny on the set, but it was a lot of fun. Please, Please, tell me where I can obtain a copy. I have been searching and searching for this for many years. I even got on Shatner's web sight and asked where I could get a copy. I never received the information. Thank you so much. Antoinette
