The Riddler is Dead

Posted by: Hammer / 2:10 PM

Actor Frank Gorshin, the impressionist with 100 faces but perhaps best known for his Emmy-nominated role as The Riddler on the old "Batman" television series, has died. He was 72.

Cesar (The Joker) Romero died in 1994. Burgess (The Penguin) Meredith died in 1997. Fortunately, all 3 Catwomen (Eartha Kitt, Julie Newmar, and Lee Meriwether) and Batgirl (Yvonne Craig) are still with us.

Three things I know to be true: Julie Newmar was the only true Catwoman. The 1966 Batman movie was a breathtaking achievement in filmmaking. Burt Ward no more wrote his book than he posed for the cover.


didnt ricardo montelban play the joker?

I don't think so. IMDB doesn't list any Batman credits for Montalban.

Isn't that Tobias Funke's groin on the cover of Burt Ward's book?

Wow. That's a fantasy best kept from the wife.

It's okay, dear. Tobias's mustache repulses me.

It's D's fantasy. He needs to keep it from his wife.

Though he should keep his fantasies from my wife, too.

In fact, teh best policy is for D to keep all his fantasies to himself.
