If you remember watching Batman on TV as a child and taking it totally seriously, then rediscovering it later in adulthood as an outright comedy, then this new DVD may interest you. Over to the press release:
Return to the Batcave - The Misadventures of Adam and Burt (Anchor Bay UK) is available to buy on DVD from 20th June 2005.
A gloriously affectionate and fun-filled feature film tribute to the 1960s TV series, 'Batman', RETURN TO THE BATCAVE: THE MISADVENTURES OF ADAM AND BURT reunites the show's original stars, Adam West (Batman) and Burt Ward (Robin), for another action-packed romp over 35 years after the pair finally hung up their capes. A definite must-see for all Batfans, the film also stars several of the show's original villains, including Frank Gorshin (The Riddler), Julie Newmar (Catwoman) and Lee Meriweather (Catwoman in the 1966 'Batman' movie), and reveals the bizarre and hilarious behind-the-scenes true story of the creation of a television classic.
Forget Keaton, Clooney and Kilmer (we'll hold fire on Christian Bale for the time being), Adam West proves once and for all that there was only ever one Batman and that, even after a period of 35 years apart, he and Burt Ward have lost none of the on-screen chemistry that made them the most dynamic duo in television history.
Full of brilliantly inspired in-jokes and references to the hit series, RETURN TO THE BATCAVE is shot in the familiar style of the original TV show, complete with crooked camera angles, questioning voiceovers and plenty of Blams and Kapows.
