Frank Gorshin, R.I.P. (1933-2005)
Over at Hit & Run, Jeff Taylor observes:
Oddly enough, Gorshin played a role in my movie education -- an awareness of costume design.
In the 1966 Batman movie, Frank Gorshin wore the most awesome-looking suit I'd ever seen -- it's what Gorshin's wearing on the front page of his web site. Nothing Jim Carrey wore in Batman Forever comes close to it. The moment I saw Gorshin cavorting around in it, I didn't want to be Batman anymore -- the Riddler was the guy for me.
Reading the obits, I was delighted to find out in Joal Ryan's E! Online story that Gorshin's co-star loved the costume as well:
The Riddler is dead.... or is he???????????

THe bad guys are always smarter, more imaginative, sexier and funnier. Perhaps we can find out what good is by taking all these things away.
