BATMAN BACK TO THE BATCAVE BOOK
Back to the Batcave- Adam West- (Batman)
Back to the Batcave My Story... Adam West. One day in
the sixties he woke up as a star. The Batman TV show
had become an overnight smash, rocketing its little
known lead actor suddenly into the bigtime. He worked
with a galaxy of top stars including Burgess Meredith,
Eartha Kitt, Liberache and Vincent Price, He was on the
cover of Life, shared a publicity agent with Clint Eastwood,
and sang with Bing Crosby. On one day seven thousand
children poured into Central Park in New York to meet him,
even the pope was a fan.
But within two years Batmania had faded, and Adam West had
to face an uncertain future, where being typecast as a comic
book hero in tights would haunt him.
For the first time, Adam West tells the inside story of his
helter skelter ride to fame, and reveala, with a wry sense
of humour, ihe impact on his life and career of his fateful
decision in 1965 to don the cape and cowel of the worlds
most famous crimefighter. Includes candid photos and a
complete TV episode guide.
