between takes on the set of BATMAN!


Above: Interior memo to actor Otto Preminger (the series'
second "Mr. Freeze") from BATMAN producers, asking for a
return appearance of the frigid foe! Alas, a third actor
(Eli Wallach) would return to play the frosty felon, not
Preminger!

Julie Newmar ("Catwoman") on the Batcave set!


Above: Adam West camps it up for kids, during this 1978 Nebraska
