Batman: The Movie (1966)

Rating: ***
Cast: Adam West, Burt Ward, Lee Meriwether, Cesar Romero, Burgess Meredith, Frank Gorshin

Batman and Robin (Adam West and Burt Ward) take to the big screen as they face their greatest challenge yet. The Joker (Cesar Romero), Riddler (Frank Gorshin), Catwoman (Lee Meriwether), and the Penguin (Burgess Meredith) have all joined forces to wreak worldwide havoc and destroy the dynamic duo with a dehydration device that they've created. Sheer deadpan lunacy and silliness abound in true 60's fashion, culminating in a slam-bang fight aboard the villain's submarine. Great campy fun, with ridiculous characters and gadgets, and Lee Meriwether is to die for as Catwoman. Meow!
