THE CAPTAIN WITH THE 1966 CLASSIC BATMOBILE IN WILLIAMSBURG BROOKLYN (AUGUST 2011)












Adam West, who is now, believe it or not, getting close to eighty years old, is easily most known and loved for his dual role as Batman and Bruce Wayne on the old but popular TV series Batman back in the 1960s, and recently for voicing the slightly deranged Family Guy character of Mayor Adam West—although his extensive filmography spans more than fifty years.
Adam West (birth name William West Anderson) was born on September 19, 1928, in Walla Walla, Washington, where he also later attended Whitman College, graduating with a BA in literature and psychology. West moved on to become a Stanford University student and graduate, and then married in 1950, to Billi Lou Yeager, who was just seventeen at the time, after which West served two years in the U.S. Army and then traveled Europe with his young wife.
West broke into the competitive world of acting with a sidekick role on The Kini Popo Show, a children’s program on which he later became the star. After moving to West Hollywood in 1959, West played the supporting role of William Lawrence III in The Young Philadelphians, which starred Paul Newman. From 1959 until 1964, West almost exclusively dedicated his time as an actor to taking guest-starring roles on many popular TV series at the time (mostly Westerns), including Bronco; 77 Sunset Strip; Maverick, with James Garner; Hawaiian Eye; Goodyear Theatre, starring Robert Ryan, Jack Lemmon, David Niven; Bonanza, with Lorne Greene and Michael Landon; The Beachcomber; Perry Mason; Gunsmoke; and Bewitched, starring Elizabeth Montgomery, David White, Dick York, and Agnes Moorehead.
In 1964, West took the role of Col. Dan McReady on Robinson Crusoe on Mars. West’s breakthrough role, however, came in 1966 when producer William Dozier cast him as Batman/Bruce Wayne in what became an incredibly popular TV series, Batman. A film version, in which West also starred, was also released in 1966, but the series only ran until 1968, although two episodes aired per week. West’s co-stars on the show included Burt Ward, Alan Napier, Neil Hamilton, Stafford Repp, Madge Blake, and Yvonne Craig. The movie version contained many of the same characters, with the addition of Lee Meriwether as Catwoman, Cesar Romero, Burgess Meredith, and Frank Gorshin.
Although West reportedly found himself typecast as Batman during this time, he still went on to voice Batman in a significant number of animated programs. In 1979, West again portrayed Batman in the physical form in the TV special Legends of the Superheroes.
West did also branch out to play other non-Batman roles during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, including CIA agent/nightclub owner Johnny Cain in The Girl Who Knew Too Much in 1969, with Nancy Kwan; and The Happy Hooker Goes to Hollywood in 1980. West also went on to expand his television acting credits, with guest appearances in hit shows like Emergency!; Laverne & Shirley, starring Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams; Aaron Spelling’s The Love Boat; and Murder She Wrote, with Angela Lansbury.
Into the 1990s, West continued to appear in both film and television, including an appearance in Lois & Clark, starring Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher. In 1999, West made an appearance as himself in Drop Dead Gorgeous, starring Kirsten Dunst, Ellen Barkin, Allison Janney, Denise Richards, Kirstie Alley, and Brittany Murphy.

BATMAN TV PROMOS (1966-67)








ADAM WEST COMMERCIAL!











Burt Ward (born Bert John Gervis, Jr. on July 6, 1945)is an American television actor. He is best known for his work as Robin, the "Boy Wonder", in the 1960s television series, "Batman." The show, which aired on ABC from 1966 to 1968, starred Ward and Adam West as the title character, also known as "The Caped Crusader."
Ward was born in Los Angeles, California. At the age of two, he was listed in the prolific magazine, Strange as it Seems, as the world's youngest professional ice skater.[citation needed] Growing up, he was an avid reader of Superman (comic), Superboy, and enjoyed the action-adventure show Adventures of Superman.[citation needed] He excelled in high school athletic activities such as football, track, wrestling, and was a member of the chess club. In addition to this, he earned a brown belt in karate.[citation needed] After graduation, he enrolled in college, while working part-time for his father's real estate company.
At the age of 19, he decided to audition for the part of Robin, without having ever read a Batman comic book. Upon meeting with executive producer William Dozier for the role, Dozier was impressed, saying "Robin just walked into my office." Ward and Adam West were up against Lyle Waggoner and Peter Deyell for the roles of Batman and Robin. During this time, the show was being planned as a campy style action-adventure show, and their screen tests consisted of staged fight scenes and, at one point, Ward chopping a set of boards with his hand. Eventually, he was selected for the role of Robin at the age of twenty, stepping onto the screen in 1966 with the debut of "Batman." Unfortunately, unlike his partner, Ward was required to act during dangerous stunt work, because his costume revealed more of his face than a stuntman could compensate for.
During the first months of shooting, Ward was paid $350 per week. By the series' end, he was earning up to $600 a week. According to him, in an interview, he stated that the series only lasted three seasons for a total of 120 episodes, due to the high cost of production. The show was still high in the ratings, but ABC Network was losing thousands of dollars on filming (this can be seen in the decline of the sets and constant re-use of stock footage). Weeks later, NBC offered to pick it up for a fourth season, but the offer was withdrawn upon realization that the sets had been bulldozed.
After the end of "Batman," Ward found himself hard-pressed to find other acting jobs. Ward only re-emerged on the movie scene to act in more than 30 made for television films such as Virgin High.
Although wanted by the producer, Ward wasn't given the Dustin Hoffman part in The Graduate, because the studio (20th Century Fox) didn't want to dilute his popularity and identification as Robin, the Boy Wonder.
He did, however, appear in numerous reunions with co-star Adam West. The most memorable reunions included Ward and West reprising their roles as Batman and Robin on a short-lived animated television series called The New Adventures of Batman and the 2003 television movie, Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt.
Ward also wrote a "tell-all" autobiography called "Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights" (ISBN 0-9647048-0-3), which described his life at the time that he was playing Robin. In 2001, Ward began Boy Wonder Visual Effects, Inc. Boy Wonder Visual Effects has provided visual effects for 25 studio features, for 10 independent films, and for several television series.
In 1994, Ward and his wife, Tracy Posner Ward, founded a Charitable organization called Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions, Inc., which rescues giant breed dogs and some smaller breed dogs. Their work with the organization has been featured in such outlets as People, ASPCA Animal Watch,, Hard Copy, Inside Edition, and Entertainment Tonight.
Ward has two daughters: Lisa Ann Ward, his daughter from a previous marriage, who had a baby in 1991, and Melody Lane Ward, born on February 16, 1991 with his current wife.

Sorry
I haven't been on here in a while. As you know my husband Ken was
fighting cancer, well he lost his battle about 8 weeks ago. I have had a
lot of stuff on my plate to take care of and deal with. when Ken was
living my time was taken up for the 7 months of his battle with caring
for him. I have been dealing with my grief and home and things of that
nature since his passing. I was blessed to have shared 30 wonderful
years with my husband. Now I'm trying to learn to live the new life that
has been handed to me. I shared everything with Ken he was my best
friend as well as my partner in this life. I still can't believe he's
gone, my heart hurts beyond words. Just wanted to stop on your page real
quick and let you now what has been up with me. Not sure how often I'll
be on here, but I want wish you a wonderful new week ahead. Take care
my friend. Much love to you from me.
