Adam West, fondly remembered as the caped crusader in Batman in the 1960’s has died at age 88. Adam will be missed by his many fans. He played parts on many other TV shows such as Bewitched. You can watch him in the episode “Love is Blind” from season 1 (found at the library). Or on Perry Mason (also found at the library) in “The Case of the Barefaced Witness” (season 4, vol.2) and in “The Case of the Bogus Books” (season 6, vol.1) .
But if you would like to see Adam West in all his Batman glory, cape and batcowl, the library has Batman Season 2, Part 1. Enjoy the Dynamic Duo (Batman & Robin) in vivid color.
