Batman: The Movie (1966) Adam West and Lee Meriwether
Not all the villains had equal time
in the camp classic that pitted Batman against the Joker, Riddler,
Penguin and Catwoman. Catty's alter ego called herself Miss Kitka,
and posing as a Russian journalist, paid a called on Bruce at Wayne
plot: Kidnap Wayne to lure Batman into a trap. How to get
Wayne? Send Kitka to lure him in of course!
It worked. Bruce was instantly captivated by the beautiful
Kitka and promptly made a date. Their night on the town ended
at her penthouse, Kitka changing into a negligee while Bruce's
cocoa is warming. It's all in good PG-rated fun in an era
that didn't take itself or its superheroes too seriously.
You can watch Batman: The Movie now on Amazon Instant Video or own the Special Edition DVD or Blu-Ray.
The vintage merchandise connected to the Batman '66 television show
and movie would warrant a website of its own. Some is easy to
come by, the novelization of the movie Winston Lyon is not. It
has the unwieldy title: Batman vs. The Fearsome Foursome20th Century-Fox motion picture release, a William Dozer
production, starring Adam West and Burt Ward, and the gallery of
dastardly villians.Novelization by Winston Lyon based
on a screenplay by Lorenzo Semple, Jr. and was released by
Signet Books. Good luck.
