Batman 66 Exhibit To Open At The Hollywood Museum On January 12, 2018

President and Founder of the world-famous Hollywood Museum in the historic Max Factor Building, Donelle Dadigan, announced that, the Hollywood Museum is thrilled that Burt Ward and world renown Batman ‘66 collectors, will work together in the first ever “Batman ‘66” exhibit, opening to the public on Jan 12th 2018 – the same date as the 52nd anniversary of the 1966 premiere of the ABC TV series, “Batman.”

On Jan 10th 2018, The Hollywood Museum will turn Hollywood in Gotham City, as they project the iconic Bat Signal on the side of the historic Max Factor building, at a VIP unveiling gala for “Holy Hollywood History! Batman ‘66,” with special appearances by the show’s cast members and other stars in attendance.

The exhibit, which will consist of four popular sections (Wayne Manor, The Batcave, Gallery of Guest Super Villains, and The Collectibles of Batman ‘66), will pay tribute to the memory of Adam West and honor the other half of the Dynamic Duo, Burt Ward, and the iconic show, still seen today in the U.S. and around the world weekly.

The Batman 66 exhibit will feature original costumes and props from the show, which have not been seen since it originally broadcast from 1966-68. Dadigan says, “We have costumes and props that evoke one’s childhood memories of the ever popular TV series, “Batman”. There is something for everyone – from the Batmobile and Batcycle to Burt and Adam’s original costumes worn during the show’s 120 episode run on ABC TV Network, as well as guest villains – and one of my favorites – the original Dr. Casandra costume worn by TV and film star Ida Lupino, that has never been seen publicly before.”

Other highlights include original costumes and costumes recreated due to age and condition representing guest star villlians including The Riddler, The Joker, The Penguin, Mr. Freeze – to name a few; , life size sculptures of the three famous women who brought Catwoman to life (Eartha Kitt, Lee Meriwether and the original, Julie Newmar) with costumes, as well as Yvonne Craig (Batgirl), and more, including Adam West’s face and mannequin from 1966.

The extensive exhibit will also feature much sought after collectibles, including a the “gotta-have” children’s lunch box, action figures of every shape and size, batman and robin puppets, rare Batman Ice Cream boxes, drinking cups, board games, and many more extremely rare collectibles from 1966 too numerous to name and, in some cases, never before seen on public display.

Thousands of hours have gone into mounting this exhibit and a dedicated team of Hollywood Museum staff and world- renown collectors, including Wally Wingert, Scott Sebring, Pat Evans, Tom Woodruff Jr., Nate Truman, Mark Hardeman, Greg Maraio, Alex Zsolt, Christopher Chaisson, Bob Mitsch, Kelly Delcambre, Adrian Van Eck, Ivan Tabac, Brian Puls, Chaz George, Buddy Rogers, Troy Maynus, Daniel Fopma, Dave Tripet, Grigg Espinoza, Rob Klein, and Robert Jungweber have come together to loan amazing items that are now part of TV history – to help create this first ever Batman’66 exhibit, “Holy Hollywood History!” Wally Wingert has been named as the special Curator of this exhibit, with exhibit Organizer, Roger Neal.

Curb Your Enthusiasm Renewed For Tenth Season At HBO

The long-awaited return of Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm came this year with the ninth season finale airing earlier this month on HBO. Now, the premium cable network has announced the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning comedy series will return to HBO for its tenth season. Unlike the six-year gap between the eighth and ninth seasons, there will not be an extended hiatus for the next season as production on the new episodes will begin in the spring.

“We are thrilled that Larry will be back with his uniquely acerbic wit and comedic sensibility,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming.

Adds Larry David, “As I’ve said many times, when one has the opportunity to annoy someone, one should do so.”

Curb Your Enthusiasm has just received two Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series (Larry David) and Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

Debuting on HBO in 2001 and presenting 90 episodes to date, Curb Your Enthusiasm stars Seinfeld co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his fictionalized life.

Season nine brought back series veterans Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, J.B. Smoove, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, Bob Einstein, Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen.

Cyclops Print Works To Release Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs ‘The Hag’ 80th Anniversary Edition Print On December 14, 2017

Cyclops Print Works will please this Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs ‘The Hag’ 80th Anniversary Edition Print on December 14, 2017.

Released on December 21, 1937 at the Carthay Circle Theater. A feat in cinema history, the first full-length cell animated feature film. In 1989, the US Library of Congress deemed the film “Historcally significant” and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry. It is ranked in AFI’s list of ‘100 Greatest American Films’ and named ‘The greatest American animated film of all time’.

Mondo released the ‘Evil Queen’ version on November 4th of this year at Mondocon. We thought it was so nice, we had to have the incomparable Tom Whalen do it twice. We didn’t just want a colorway variant, we wanted to introduce a completely new element to freeze this iconic film in time–and with the flick of Tom’s pen he transformed the Evil Queen into her ‘Wicked ol’ Hag” form.

Printed on a beautiful stock that gleams when the light hits it just right. Named “White Gold”, Cyclops Print Works knew they had to dub it “Snow White Gold”….
