Belated Happy Birthday to Adam West

Here's to the man whose Batman will live on past all the others.

Let's face it: the world would be a far worse place without the great physicality of how he runs to doors that are about to close or those who will, inevitably, get away -- but only for the moment. And we will always be grateful for his deep, resonant voice offering Robin (Burt Ward) preposterously framed moral lessons.

My favorite is when Catwoman (Julie Newmar) has done something to Batman and Robin so that they're about to pass out and speak literally as they are falling to the floor.

Robin: You can't trust a woman.
Batman: Don't make generalizations, Robin, though in this case you are correct.

(They land on the floor, unconscious.)
