The calling card of a great episode.
I rest my case.
I should have gotten a floor cat.

WARNER BROS. CONFIRMS RELEASE DETAILS OF ‘BATMAN: THE COMPLETE TELEVISION SERIES’
By Andy Khouri
After decades of waiting, fans of the beloved Batman television show of the 1960s — or Batman ’66 as it is known — will finally be able to own all 120 episodes on home video, and in high definition. After protracted litigation with series owner Fox, DC Comics’ parent company Warner Bros. has set November 11 as the on-sale date for the completely remastered Batman ’66, which will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, digital, and, of course, a super expensive collector’s edition that comes with all sorts of groovy stuff, including a selection of photos from star Adam West’s personal archives (when you’re as mature and sophisticated as West, you get to have “personal archives”).
$189.99 on Amazon. Guess I’ll stick with MeTV (“Batman’s Anniversary” is on tonight!)
"I went to my father [film director Vincente Minnelli], and asked him, what can you tell me about thirties glamour? Should I be emulating Marlene Dietrich or something? And he said no, I should study everything I can about Louise Brooks." -Liza Minnelli on preparing for the role of “Sally Bowles” in Cabaret

I’m going to guess not Ms. Blake since she has dark hair.
When they were in Indianapolis shooting To Please a Lady, Barbara’s business manager called her to ask what type of accommodation she would require. She told him she needed a bedroom and bath for herself, and the same for Harriet (her personal maid and friend), with a sitting room between. The business manager explained that Gable had requested that they stay in the best hotel in town, where blacks were not welcome. Barbara remained adamant. She wanted Harriet near her and requested that the business manager make the necessary arrangements. Later that day the director of the film, Clarence Brown, called Barbara to ensure her that Harriet would stay in the best “coloured” hotel in Indianapolis. The ever determined Barbara told him, “I’ll tell you what you can do to solve the whole thing. You make a reservation at the best coloured hotel in Indianapolis for two bedrooms and baths and a sitting room between, and that is where I’ll stay with Harriet. “Oh, Barbara, you can’t do that,” Brown protested. “The hell I can’t,” she said forcefully and hung up. As far as she was concerned the subject was closed. When they reached Indianapolis, she and Harriet both stayed at the best hotel in the city with Gable and the rest of the cast.
