Trivia

When he was signed for this episode, Rudy Vallee was enjoying something of a comeback, via his successes in the stage and film versions of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." Unfortunately, he also had a reputation for being famously difficult to get along with, a reputation which he proceeded to justify during the taping of this three-episode story. Yvonne Craig described it as nothing less than "three weeks in hell." Conversely, Glynis Johns was very easy to work with, according to Adam West, and got on well with everyone in the cast and crew.

At least Robin gets all the chicks
29 April 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Bloody Tower" finds Lord Marmaduke Ffogg (Rudy Vallee) and Lady Penelope Peasoup (Glynis Johns) plotting to cap their criminal career by stealing the Crown Jewels from the Tower of Londinium, after Batman frees Batgirl from her chains in the Ffogg Place dungeon, Robin forced to escape from the clutching hands of Ffogg's faculty of curvy student bodies (Burt Ward really had to fake looking unhappy!). It's no surprise that our heroes get to the bloody tower before the bad guys, for a showdown breathtaking in its brevity, the precious fog making pipe finally running out of steam (the 'Pipe of Fog Bat Reverser' doing its job), Batgirl's presence sadly more pointless than usual. The whole thing ends with a phone call from LBJ, apparently following up on one that concluded "Dizzoner the Penguin." A brief appearance from Madge Blake as Aunt Harriet marked only her second during this third season, and her final one on the entire series (she passed away in 1969). Yvonne Craig admitted that working with the difficult egocentric Rudy Vallee proved to be 'three weeks in hell,' and so was the viewing experience!
