As the first true installment of our Batman on Film series, we go to the way-way back machine and visit 1966’s Batman: The Movie.
This flick – if you’ve never checked it out before – stars Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin. It also stars a slew of the Caped Crusader’s enemies, including The Joker (Cesar Romero), The Penguin (Burgess Meredith), The Riddler (Frank Gorshin), and Catwoman (Lee Meriwether).
We get goofy jokes, melodrama, and Bat Shark Repellent. What more could you ask for?
