Hey everybody,



Beginning May 1st, YouTube is making the 1966 Batman Movie available for free. 



( Note: As a YouTube Premium subscriber, all of my viewing is commercal free. However I'm certain that any links I post here will carry all the ads scheduled by Google since the commercial-free access is tired to your online account).



Let me know if I'm correct, I never see ads on anything I do online so my viewng experience is very enjoyable. At least let me know if the link is active for YouTube movies that I post on Retro-Daze.

I'm relieved to know that the link is good. The original plan by Google was to eliminate all subscription levels and have only commercial sponsored viewing. But my "Premium" account remains unchanged and I still pay the monthly fee. So when YouTube Movies alerts mme that a movie is "free" I wasn't sure if that goes for everybody.

You can say that Again! 



Only now that I'm an old man myself do I realize what my parents liked about the Batman TV series from 1966 to 1968. The show was a "Who's Who" of acting talent - some of the best in the business.



Burgess Meredith as "The Penguin" and Cesar Romero as "The Joker" were both hamming up the camera in fine style. As "The Riddler", Frank Gorshin was having the time of his life! Lee Meriwether was too cool as "Catwoman", and was upstaged by Julie Newmar who really took the role to a new level.



Remember, the TV series was just as bright and colorful as the movie. This bright comic book color pallet was typical of a lot of 60's television and adds to the fun of watching.



Do you recognize some of the super villains? I see Vincent Price as "Egghead". That guy in blue with the feather in his hat - that's Van Johnson as "The Minstrel". Check 'em all out!
