Burt Ward And Robin I still enjoy the TV show today which probably says alot about my sense of humour This book was trashy ossipy and self aggrandizingBut I loved it Of course it has to be taken with a pinch of salt but what autobiography doesn t Ward isn t the best writer in the world but he succeeds in entertaining All the behind the scenes info and secrets about Adam West were very interesting to me I should add I still love Adam West no matter what bad light Ward writes him in One final note This is not as scandalous and shocking as the cover proclaims Well at least by my standards anywayHOLY SHARK REPELLENT SPRAY BATMAN Super trashy More frank than the Adam West book I ve already said uite a bit about this book Let me just say that it is the most delightfully campily sleazy book I ve read in a long time Burt Ward doesn t come off looking uite as demented as say Bob Crane another 60s TV star and sex addict partly because Burt settles down rather boringly and disappointingly to domesticity at the end But Adam West comes off looking like an emotionally stunted jerk and an unrepentant user Someone needs to do a comparative study of the psychological effects on actors of playing superheroes Ben Affleck managed to blunt the effects of his embarrassingly flabby and chinless portrayal of Daredevil by delving into George Reeves psyche when he portrayed him in Hollywoodland But I mean Reeves himself Christopher Reeve Robert Downey Jr Lynda Carter there s probably a whole book to be written Meanwhile I ask fellow readers this uestion is there anywhere a sleazier Hollywood memoir than Boy Wonder or at least one where the Ambition and Accommodation: How Women View Gender Relations gap between the wholesomeness of the public persona and the sleaziness of the personal life is so profound If so tell me If you are looking for Hollywoodossip especially from the 60s This is the book to read Lots of dirt on people American Kinship: A Cultural Account great memories of the show Batman and sex Oh there is lots and lots of sex It made it almost awkward to read There were times when this book seemed to repeat itself I am not sure if it was all just the same stuff being said over and over again or I was imagining it It was like sex talk sex talk sex Adam West was portrayed as this big hero who had no emotions and an obvious sex addiction While Burt was portrayed as an innocent who just happened to be pulled into all of this with no way of knowing how or why heot there.

R his womanizing ways just explains it was the 60s and nobody knew any different It was certainly eye opening Holy dirty laundry Batman We re not in Gotham City anyThis book is NOT FOR CHILDREN It is a An Ethics of Interrogation good and fast read As a memoir it is light weight at best However if titillation is what you re Michael Keaton and the animated series have the best true to form Batmans in my opinion but the cheesy camp tastic Adam West batman series will always have a special place in my heart You can t watch an episode of that show and not smile at lines like We ve come a long way from the Prime Minister s exploding cake Or have we Hunting down Burt Ward s memoir of his life during the series run was pretty difficult since it s out of print and the few copies being exchanged are very expensive but the reason for the limited uantity and the poor ratings became very apparent after blowing through the book in two sittings Burt Warn can spin a yarn and has no ualms about scandalizing his costars and fans but he is also an obnoxious liar This didn t spoil it for me though I personally loved his self aggrandizing stories that had nothing to do with the show and his constant references to his dick because it was the kind of high camp that feels in line with the This was alright It was amusing in spots The Batman and Robin of the lovable sixties show were impossibly wholesome characters that multipleenerations are familiar with Burt Ward s tell all reveals that he and Adam West were actually deviant poon hounds during the run of the show and for a while after its cancelation What s amusing is how Ward declares being a shy conservative type never drinking or drugging and even refusing to cuss while at the same time recalling fairly detailed sexual exploits and conuests The narrative is Ancestral Voices: Religion and Nationalism in Ireland grandiose at times cheesy at others None of that bothered me personally because it s his tale told his way The book breaks down into three parts really and the first two focus on being Robin and the impact the show had on his life The latter part is about his new wife and their child together It s a uick enough read and is interesting in that you will never be able to look at Batman and Robin the same after you know they ve hadroup sex with BatGroupies This book read exactly as you would expect it to Camp and full of innuendo It really lives up to Batman legend No matter what I read I still love.
