The Riddler, Frank Gorshin Dies

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Thu May 19, 2005 1:19 am

From the IMDB:

The Riddler Dies

Frank Gorshin, the man behind Batman foe The Riddler's mask, has died at a medical centre in Burbank, California. He was 72. The actor and impressionist was Emmy nominated for his villainous role in the cult Batman TV series from 1966 to 1969. Gorshin earned another Emmy nomination for a guest appearance on another cult show, Star Trek, and won theatrical acclaim in 2002 by portraying late comedian George Burns on Broadway, New York, in bittersweet one-man show Say Goodnight Gracie. Gorshin's final performance was in an upcoming episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Pretty sad. This guy was a great impressionist for his day. Ironic he's on an upcoming episode of CSI.

One of the alltime weird TV characters.
Riddle me this: what symbol did the Riddler have all over his clothes?

That sucks I used to watch the Batman show all the time, and the Riddler was one of my favorite villians.

R.I.P. :,-(
