Batman is a 1960s American live action television series, based on the DC comic book character of the same name. It stars Adam West as Bruce Wayne / Batman and Burt Ward as Dick Grayson / Robin – two crime-fighting heroes who defend Gotham City from a variety of arch villains. It is known for its camp style, upbeat theme music, and its intentionally humorous, simplistic morality (aimed at its largely teenage audience). This included championing the importance of using seat belts, doing homework, eating vegetables, and drinking milk. It was described by executive producer William Dozier as the only situation comedy on the air without a laugh track. The 120 episodes aired on the ABC network for three seasons from January 12, 1966 to March 14, 1968, twice weekly for the first two and weekly for the third. In 2016, television critics Alan Sepinwall and Matt Zoller Seitz ranked Batman as the 82nd greatest American television show of all time.

Popova, the Princess's tutor, devises a terrible revenge because the count called him a Christian dog. He feeds the princess pickles to keep her thin. The beaux of the country pay assiduous court to the Princess Jeneka, the younger daughter, but the laws of the country forbid her marrying before her elder sister. As a last resort the count orders the slim princess to stuff her clothing with pillows and invites all the dandies to a garden party. But they are deceived. They try the weight of the princess and find her as light as a feather. Coming uninvited to the party is Alexander H. Pike, an American millionaire. He falls in love with the princess and comforts her by showing her pictures in a magazine, proving that in his country slim persons are considered most beautiful. But Pike is discovered by the count's slaves and barely escapes with his life. He returns to America. The count finds an advertisement in a magazine Pike had dropped in his flight, which promises to make thin persons fat. He sends the princess to America to try the cure. T'here she meets Pike, who renews his courtship. But the impatient count learns from the ambassador that the princess is getting no fatter and orders her to return. Pike follows. The young American then visits the court, tells the count he is Grand Exalted Ruler of a fraternal order, a Knight Templar and King of the Hoo Hoos, and asks for the hand of his daughter. The count, much impressed with the titles, consents, especially after he finds that it is the slim princess the American loves. The cloud of gloom is lifted from the palace and Pike prepares to leave with the princess for America, where she can have all the varieties of pickles to suit her taste.

Eight hours is not a very long time, yet it completely changed the lives of a girl and a man. A man's life was fanned out by fate, criminals were caught and punished, and a battle of wits took place, while the mystery baffled New York City. The Earl of Valletort insisted that his daughter, Lady Hermione, marry a Hungarian Count. The Count saw a clear path to the throne of his country. Money was necessary; he must have wealth; thus his choice of Lady Hermione. The Earl himself had no money. When his wife passed away she left every dollar, and a big estate it was, to her daughter. The Count promises to do wonders for the girl if the latter would arrange to have his daughter marry him. The Earl tries to force his daughter to marry the Count, but he was not the man of her heart, so she escaped to America. She considered the marriage vile, and would avoid it at any cost. She took with her a plotting Frenchman, who was known to her father. She was not aware of this at the time, so when she arrived in America, she decided to marry him. (He agreed to protect her with his name, nothing more.) She had arranged to marry Jean de Courtois to escape the Hungarian nobleman, disappear suddenly and later secure a divorce. De Courtois tries every method imaginable and every excuse ever invented to delay the wedding. He finally meets a newspaper reporter, whom he had met in America before, and gives him the whole story, but not his permission to use it. De Courtois promises he will give his consent in a day or so, and keeps the scribe waiting so long that he becomes disgusted. A few days later the scheming Hungarian gets in touch with a few questionable characters, who make their headquarters on the East Side in New York. He instructs them to watch de Courtois. Henry Hunter, the newspaper reporter in mention, insisted that de Courtois allow the wedding to take place immediately, but the latter complained of having lost the license. The Count's men have learned of this through their leader, Antoine. They also were aware of the fact that Hunter was to get another. John Delancey Curtis, with his friend, Howard Devar, arriving from China, register at the Central Hotel, and, unknowingly, secures a room quite near that occupied by de Courtois. That night the Count is overpowered by the Hungarian's paid men, bound and gagged to await the arrival of the newspaper reporter. Hunter arrives and just as he steps from the taxicab, is killed. Curtis is the only eyewitness. The police demand that he hold himself ready for the inquest in the morning. Late that night, while strolling up Broadway, Curtis discovers that he is wearing the coat of the murdered man. In the pocket he discovers a marriage license, made out to Lady Hermione and Jean de Courtois. This thrills Curtis, and he decides to see Lady Hermione and find out just what the license means. He arrives at her quarters and is informed that the man to whom she was to be married was nothing to her, except as a protector from the Hungarian. Curtis believed that de Courtois had been killed. He was not aware of the fad that the newspaper reporter had been sent for the license, and now Lady Hermione believes what Curtis had told her. Curtis offers himself as a bodyguard, and she accepts him, marrying him a few minute later. The Earl arrives in New York, is informed of the whereabouts of his daughter, and rushes to the minister's home, only to discover that Lady Hermione is married. They try to interfere with Curtis, but the young American, filled with spirit and enthusiasm, punches the Count in the eye, scaring the Earl almost out of his wits. Curtis and his bride catch a taxicab and leave the infuriated nobleman bewildered. They secure a suite at the Hotel Plaza. When the American returns to his room at the Central Hotel he is met by the Earl and the Count, who furiously reprimand him. Steingall, chief of detectives, links Curtis with the murder of de Courtois. De Courtois is later discovered in the room almost exhausted. He refuses to talk. Steingall found telegrams from the Earl, asking to delay the ceremony until his arrival, and that he, de Courtois, would be paid well. Curtis manages to convince the detective that he is guiltless and later discovers the car in which the murderers had escaped. He follows the machine. With the aid of the detectives. Curtis and Devar capture the East Side assassins. The Earl endeavors to have Curtis arrested on the charge of abduction, but when Steingall makes it plain to the Count and Earl that they must leave this country immediately, or he will arrest them in connection with the murder of the reporter, they are glad to leave. The adventure brought about an undying friendship between Steingall. Curtis and Devar, and it is said by those who know that Curtis and Lady Hermione lived happily ever after. In fact, she did not remember that she had married him for a bodyguard, for she loved him with her whole heart and soul, and he worshiped the ground she walked on.

Hale discovers the secret hiding place for the letters between Bryon and Dora and in reply to a letter that Bryon had written to Dora, telling her that as he is going away for a few days he would like to see her before his departure, he forges a letter in Dora's handwriting to Bryon to meet her in the chicken-house at 10 o'clock that night. Bryon finds the note and in going to the chicken-house is shot. The noise brings Dora and her father to the spot. Dora finds the note, but tells her father that she knows nothing of it. Upon being notified of his brother's death, the Rev. Stanley goes to the village, where he begins to ferret out the murderer. As he has reason to believe that Hale is the murderer of his brother, the minister preaches a sermon on "The Power of Conscience," which is directed by that reverend gentleman to Hale, who reluctantly consented to hear the sermon. After the sermon, Hale sees a vision of the murdered man wherever he goes, and the next day, as he is working in the mine, the vision comes to him. To better observe the illusion he strikes a match. The coal gas is ignited and there is an explosion, which brings the villagers to the scene of disaster. Among the multitude is the Rev. Stanley, who rushes into the burning mine. He later returns with the prostrate form of Hale, who, on his death-bed, confesses that it was his fault that Bryon met his untimely end.

An orphan girl was given a …
An orphan girl was given a home by one of her father's friends, who, with his mother, carefully looked after her. The girl's benefactor was much her senior, but soon fell desperately in love with him, although she hid it from those around her. Jealousy came into her life, when a young woman came to visit her guardian's mother. Soon it was apparent to the orphan that the man she admired was deeply in love with the elder girl, and she saw that his affection for his ward was purely paternal. While the two girls and the young man were motoring one day, they met with an accident and the young women were badly injured. A little country hospital was nearby, and there the victims were taken, being placed on adjoining cots. The young man did all he could for their comfort, but his actions showed that his heart was wrapped up in the elder girl. This his ward noted, and as she lay on her cot she brooded and prayed for a chance to have revenge. The man's sweetheart was suffering principally from shock, and a heart stimulant was given her at constant intervals. This draught was a very powerful drug, and the ward knew that an overdose would be fatal. Full of hatred, she watched her chance and when she thought she was unobserved, poured half of the contents of the bottle into the glass containing the mixture prepared for the patient. By good fortune the doctor, who was outside on the porch, saw her. He decided that she should be punished, but had a firm belief that conscience would cause her more suffering than could be administered by the law. The guilty girl peeped stealthily when the doctor approached her enemy's cot, and gave her a dose of medicine. She shuddered a few minutes later when the screen emblem of a patient's approaching death was put around her neighbor's cot. Later when the screen was removed and she saw the empty bed beside her she bitterly regretted the evil deed that jealousy had led her to do. The girl was not dead, however, the doctor only pretended to give her the medicine, and removed her for safety's sake to another part of the hospital. The guilty girl regained her strength very slowly. Weak and wan, she was seated in the hospital grounds one beautiful afternoon when visitors were announced. They were the man she loved and the girl she thought she had killed. Joyfully she greeted them, but was so weak from the shock that her callers were ordered to leave. To the doctor who came to administer to her, the girl made full confession, and devoutly thanked heaven that in some mysterious way the crime she planned had not succeeded. The doctor explained that he knew all, and had known it from the time she tampered with the medicine, but had kept the secret. Humbly she thanked him, told him she had learned her lesson, and as reparation would consecrate the rest of her life to doing good.

Bruce Bushman

Art director Bruce Bushman (born Francis X. Bruce Bushman) …
Art director Bruce Bushman (born Francis X. Bruce Bushman) was born in New Jersey in 1911, the son of silent-film star Francis X. Bushman. He was raised in Baltimore, Maryland, and later moved to Los Angeles, California, where he attended UCLA and the prestigious Chouinard Art Institute. In 1936 he was hired by Walt Disney Studios as a layout artist, but eventually worked his way up to art director; among the projects he worked on was Fantasia (1940). He married Mary Ena Cousineau, a fellow Disney employee, in 1945 and they had two children. In 1953 Bushman was assigned to help in the development of Disney's signature theme park, Disneyland. He helped to design Tomorrowland and Fantasyland--he designed the Fantasyland Castle, among other things--and the overall layout of the park itself. At the same time he worked as a sketch artist on the Disney film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954). After he finished with those projects, he was assigned as the Art Director for a new TV show Disney was developing: The Mickey Mouse Club (1955). He designed the look of the show and created the famous Mickey Mouse Club logo and the logos for all the T-shirts and caps for the The Adventures of Spin and Marty (1955) series. For "The Mickey Mouse Club" he also designed the shows's sets and props, including the famous clubhouse used for "Anything Can Happen Day". Bushman left Disney in late 1959 or early 1960--sources differ--and went to work for producer Ivan Tors, where he worked as art director on three of Tors' series: Sea Hunt (1958), Bat Masterson (1958) and Gentle Ben (1967). After leaving Tors he went to Hanna-Barbera Productions as a layout artist, working on such series as Jonny Quest (1964), The Jetsons (1962) and The Flintstones (1960). He died in Los Angeles on February 15, 1972, at the age of 60.
