It's in spanish, so all of you non-spanish speaking folks will have to translate it, but even so if you are a Batman fan, you can't miss this site with it's awesome graphics and cool goodies and images to gawk at.

That site is run by Martin Zamorano, a terrifically talented Argentinian Adam West afficianado.  And a really nice guy besides.  He posts semi-regularly at the 1966 Batman Message Boards and his English is pretty good, so I'm sure he'd appreciate any kind words if you want to visit him there or drop him a line using the "contact" link at his site.

What was it that Roger Ebert once said - Batman actors are hired on the basis of their chins? Looking at Adam West's prominent, heroic jaw, it's easy to see where Ebert would be right on that.

Seriously, though, this website is very interesting. For one thing, apparently, King Tut and Egghead had a basis in the comic books - something I was entirely unaware of. It was great to read praise for the brilliant Victor Buono, however, who was never invited to be in BATMAN: THE MOVIE along with the others, but who supposedly was the all-time favorite villain of screenwriter Stanley Ralph Ross. Nice to know other people appreciated Buono as well.

Greatest quote by Victor Buono ever: "Batman let me do something every actor wants to do, but is never allowed: overact." Shades of Shatner!

One thing the website does not answer, that I've always wondered about is this: why is it that the Batman tv-show never used Two-Face? Maybe none of the glamorous Hollywood crowd that love to overact and slum as Batvillains would agree to playing a disfigured type. Or maybe they figured Two-Face was too grotesque...even by the terrifyingly low standards of the Batfoes.

Little known connection between the Adam West Batman television show and Latin America:

Cesar Romero is the illegitimate grandson of Cuban patriot and poet Jose Marti. In 1880, Jose Marti lived in a boarding house in New York City friendly to Cuban exiles and revolutionaries run by, Carmen Miyares de Mantilla, a place Marti spent several months while saving money to bring his wife and children from South America. Carmen Miyares de Mantilla later gave birth to a Maria Miyares, baptized in Brooklyn with Marti as Godfather. Marti provided for Maria's education. Later, Maria Miyares married a Cesar Romero, among whose children included the Clown Prince of Crime himself.
