Did You Know?


Otto Preminger was considered a particularly difficult guest star on this series and the shooting of the conclusion of the final fight scene of this episode was when he was most irritating. In the scene, Batman and Robin have to help up Mr. Freeze who is in dire medical straits and barely conscious from overheating with his refrigerating collar being lost. Acting etiquette generally requires when that an actor is lifted up while performing, he is expected to subtly help the lifting actors by partially getting on his feet to reduce the load. In this case, Preminger instead remained limp throughout the scene and Adam West and Burt Ward had to carry him for real the entire time. See more »


Mr. Freeze: After I'm through with this little business, I'm going to execute my plan for the greatest ice crime in history that will destroy all of Gotham City in a few minutes. And there'll be no Batman und Robin to stop me. And then, my darling Miss Iceland, you're temperature will be down to my temperature and you will become Mrs. Freeze.
Miss Iceland: Never! Not if I live to be a hundred... below zero. I'll never marry you.

Batman can live with a tarnished reputation, but not when Gotham City is in danger
15 May 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Deep Freeze" finds the Caped Crusaders avoiding the Frosty Freezies treatment by opening the steam valve with their feet, but in the wake of unpleasant rumors tarnishing their reputations, Batman decides it's time to hang up their capes and cowls. Meanwhile, Mister Freeze (Otto Preminger), believing the Dynamic Duo to be on ice for good, implements his diabolical scheme to hold Gotham City for a cool billion dollar ransom, or face being frozen solid in 90 degree summer heat. This is too much for Batman, who cannot stand by any longer with his beloved Gotham City in peril, going into action to put away the frosty culprit's best laid plans once and for all. Byron Keith is again on hand as Mayor Linseed, the seventh of his ten appearances, while the stunning Dee Hartford, in one of her last roles, turns up the heat in her one piece bathing suit. As difficult in front of the camera as he was behind it, 'wild' Otto Preminger sealed his own fate in not returning to play Mister Freeze for his next and final two parter, which saw Eli Wallach inherit the role in "Ice Spy"/"The Duo Defy."
