Penguin, Joker, Riddler, and Catwoman have all teamed up to hatch a plot that not only threatens Gotham City, not only threatens the country, but rather threatens the entire world.  Their objective - the United World Organization main assembly.  And only two people stand in their way - Batman and Robin.  Can the Dynamic Duo stop the Fearsome Foursome with the aid of their newest entries in their crimefighting arsenal?  


Stay glued to your seats, Citizens.  It's going to be a bumpy ride as John is joined by Geek Radio Daily's Billy Flynn, Cinefantatique Online's Dan Person, and Gotham City 14 Miles editor and writer, Jim Beard to discuss the 1966 movie.

The Wonderful Billy Flynn brings the funny each week on Geek Radio Daily! His daytime alter ego is mild-mannered (well, that part is a stretch) radio station personality at WLEE in Virginia.   He actually gets paid to sit on his butt and run his mouth! His “edumacation” is from UNC-Wilmington, the Columbia School of Broadcasting, and University of Phoenix. When he is not gracing the podcasting airways with his comedic stylings, you can find Billy Flynn on Xbox Live (flynn71), rockin’ out on Guitar Hero or Rock Band, watching movies, reading comics, working out, or posting on the forums at (ding!).


In his twenty plus years as writer and film journalist, Dan Persons has interviewed the likes of Paul Verhoeven, Wes Craven, Stuart Gordon, Satoshi Kon and John Kricfalusi; published the well-received novella, "A Game of the Apocalypse", in The Ultimate Silver Surfer, edited by The Chronic Rift's own Keith R.A. Decandido; and been an occasional, and somewhat peculiar, guest on the public access incarnation of the Rift. He presently is the host of Mighty Movies Temple of BadMighty Movie Podcast, and The Cinefantastique Podcast when he isn't haunting the dining room of his local Popeye's.

A native of Toledo, Ohio, Jim Beard was introduced to comic books at an early age by his father, who passed on to him a love for the medium and the pulp characters who preceded it. After decades of reading, collecting and dissecting comics, Jim became a published writer when he sold a story to DC Comics in 2002. Since that time he's written official Star Wars and Ghostbusters comic stories and contributed articles and essays to several volumes of comic book history.


His prose work includes GOTHAM CITY 14 MILES, a book of essays on the 1966 Batman TV series; SGT. JANUS, SPIRIT-BREAKER, a collection of pulp ghost stories featuring an Edwardian occult detective; MONSTER EARTH, a giant monster anthology; and CAPTAIN ACTION: RIDDLE OF THE GLOWING MEN, the first pulp prose novel based on the classic 1960s action figure.

Currently, Jim provides regular content for, the official Marvel Comics website, and is a regular columnist for Toledo Free Press.



The original theatrical trailer for the movie.

John's first exposure to the Batman movie was part of a "Heroes" theme week on the 4:30 movie on WABC in New York.

Trailer for a television broadcast of the movie.

Adam West and Burt Ward appear on the Merv Griffin Show just after the premiere of the motion picture.

This is a rare interview with Lee Meriwether, Cesar Romero,

Adam West, and William Dozier for the movie.

William Dozier is interviewed for CBC's Telescope that aired during the break between the first and second season - June 2, 1966.  It's interesting to hear Dozier's take on the casting of the supporting characters and how he viewed them.
