Donelle Dadigan, founder and president of The Hollywood Museum, announced that Holy Hollywood History! Batman 1966, the Bat-tastic exhibit that celebrates the classic television series starring Adam West and Burt Ward, will be extended through this summer due to popular demand, while the Museum plans to expand the exhibit to include new items, including costumes worn by Victor Buono, the actor who played arch-villain King Tut on Batman.
Holy Hollywood History! Batman 1966 is comprised of four sections: Wayne Manor, The Batcave, Gallery of Guest Super Villains, and The Collectibles of Batman ’66. The exhibit features original costumes and props from Batman, many of which have not been seen since its original ABC broadcast, including the original George Barris Batmobile; life-size sculptures of Adam West, Burt Ward, Yvonne Craig, Lee Meriwether and Julie Newmar; the black ball bomb prop from the Batman movie; and a host of never before displayed lunch boxes, action figures, drinking cups, board games and other collectibles.
Donelle Dadigan will also be one of our guests during the July 6-9 edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL.
The Hollywood Museum is located at 1660 North Highland Ave., at Hollywood Blvd. in the Max Factor Building. For tickets and more information, call (323) 464-7776 or go to TheHollywoodMuseum.com.
