A new friend to the Bat-Blog, named Fred Grandinetti, just wrote an article for the “Movie Collector’s World” Magazine website. He did a piece in issue #734, August 2009 ) on the “The Three faces of The 60’s Catwoman” from the 1966 Batman TV Series. Of course we all know them as Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, & Eartha Kitt. It’s a very interesting read & at the end of this post we have a link to it. Also, if you’re really into Vintage Movie Posters you might check out a few other features at the site. Basically, the entire web page is totally devoted to movie collectibles, pretty interesting stuff. I wanna thank Fred for sending me the link, plus let him know he did a really great job on the article ( Thanks Fred ). You can visit the site by clicking HERE!
Check out these amazing Custom Catwoman Dolls, Batgirl Model Kit, & Re-Designed Retro-Style Batman Toys! These were all made and or customized by our friend Glenn, also known as “infadoll”. He likes to take old beat-up toys and give them new life. His main focus is Superhero-related characters. Shown here are two versions of Catwoman. The 1st one is Julie Newmar from the 1966 BATMAN TV Series. The fabric for the costume looks great & the necklace is really nice too. Then you have the “Golden Age” version from the 1940’s comic books…MEOW!
The 3rd photo shows his talent for adding dioramas to his model kits. Here is a “Yvonne Craig” Batgirl from the 2nd season of TV’s BATMAN. Wow, the face looks just like hers! Then, look at the last 2 pics. This is an old Vintage 1960’s Palmolive BATMAN SOAKY Bubble Bath Bottle… transformed into ADAM WEST! If you’re not familiar with the old toy it was actually extremely simple-looking & basic. In Glenn’s version he detailed it quite a bit & made it more authentic to the TV Show, Coolness! He has a pretty awesome website & there is actually way more there that I can’t post. So, if you enjoy his work, then click HERE!

Here’s a quick post to share the new that our friend Renato D’ Angelo finally got his “1966 Batman TV Series History” Book on Amazon. He self-published this book and I guess it’s hard to get your product on their site. Especially since he lives all the way in Argentina. Anyways, for people looking for this book this is great news. You can also buy it on his website, just CLICK HERE. Oh yeah, here’s the official Bat-Blog Book Review we did awhile back, just click right HERE!
