BATMAN'S ROGUE GALLERY

Does everyone remember the Batman tv series from the 60's? As a kid, I loved watching that show when it aired on cable TV during the 80's. Looking back on it now, I am amazed at all the classic movie actors and actresses that guest starred on the show as villians. At the time I didn't know one person from the next...I was only like 10. But now it's cool to see how many top classic stars appeared on Batman. Here is a list I compiled of what stars and what character they played.



































THE RIDDLER (FRANK GORSHIN)
THE PENGUIN (BURGESS MEREDITH)
THE JOKER (CESAR ROMERO)
MR. FREEZE (GEORGE SANDERS, OTTO PREMINGER)
ZELDA (ANNE BAXTER)
BOOKWORM (RODDY MCDOWALL)
THE ARCHER (ART CARNEY)
EGGHEAD (VINCENT PRICE)
CHANDELL (LIBERACE)
CLOCK KING (WALTER SLEZAK)
MA PARKER (SHELLEY WINTERS)
SHAME (CLIFF ROBERTSON)
CALAMITY JANE (DIINA MERRILL)
MARSHA, QUEEN OF DIAMONDS (CAROLYN JONES)
SANDMAN (MICHAEL RENNIE)
CATWOMAN (JULIE NEWMAR, EARTHA KITT)
BLACK WIDOW (TALLULAH BANKHEAD)
KING TUT (VICTOR BUONO)

Impressive list for what was basically a kid's show about men in tights.

I never noticed Preminger! :") (and many more, too) That is quite an impressiv list. I know that Jerry Lewis was the first VIP doing the Batman-is-climbing-up-a-wall-and-someone-is-looking-out-of-the-window-routine.

But like you: When I first saw this series I was not aware of any famous name.. Well, I might have noticed Errol Flynn or John Wayne.. ;") But at least the first wasn't able to do a part in this.. *sigh*

Anyhow - I'd love to see Anne Baxter and Tallulah Bankhead!!

Thank you so much for sharing! :")

Frank Gorshin was born this date (April 5th). His Riddler was the "scary" villain for me as a kid. It seemed to me he was so deep in the character he was never coming back. John Astin played a good Riddler, but Frank Gorshin WAS the Riddler.
