A Man Could Get Killed

R.I.P. James Garner, arguably the most charming actor of his generation and a lifelong favorite of mine. Here's what he was doing in '66.

Batman-The Complete Series

At last! Obviously, one of the highlights of '66 was the BATMAN TV series with Adam West and Burt Ward. After years of having to settle for self-recorded reruns or bootleg discs from 16 mm, this November the entire series will be officially released, apparently with all the proper bells and whistles! Stay tuned.

The Ghost in the Invisble Bikini

One of then great titles of all time for what was essentially the final film in the AIP beach party cycle, in spite of the fact that most original cast members had all already moved on. Even the great Buster Keaton was replaced by (the also great) Benny Rubin in this one. Tying in to the horror craze, Basil Rathbone and Boris Karloff appear and seem to be having great fun. Tommy Kirk and Deborah Walley are the ostensible leads with Aron Kincaid and Harvey Lembeck in their traditional antagonist roles. Some clever spfx shots!
