Top 10 Best Adam West Quotes

#10

 

It was inescapable. I'd just about land something substantial, something I liked or a good career move. Then some dinosaur would rear up and say, "But the audience will think of him as Batman." It was formidable. It was there like a brick wall.

I was at war with the producers [of Batman] at the beginning because ... they wanted it to be stiff and at one level. I wouldn’t do it. So the letters and memos flew back and forth, but after a week or so, a wonderful thing happened -- they trusted me. They said "Let him go, let him do what he’s doing."

I loved Burgess Meredith, what he did with Penguin. He was never crude or vulgar, and so funny, comedic and elegant, that to me, he really filled that costume -- beautifully.

I like Christian Bale. I've heard he's a big fan of mine, but I certainly reciprocate. I think he's really very good. I'd love to play his father. The older Batman comes out of the woodwork, when times get really tough ... maybe a few tips here and there.

That’s been the complaint of everyone who's played Batman -- the costume.

I have the curse of thinking funny! And so with each script and new situation, I saw something funny in it. But I could never let the audience think that I thought it was funny. But I think if you hold that back, there's kind of a twinkle or a sense that the audience gets of something trying to ... burst out of that mask, and tell us something more.

--ADAM WEST

I think our Batman had to be fun, light-hearted, funny, tongue-in-cheek ... and I think that made kind of an homage to those earlier comic books, where Batman always had a quip or something. Now if I were doing it today, I'd make changes, but I wouldn't make it as violent, as loud, as noisy, with the explosives going on and on ... the crashes ... as what they're doing now to try and titillate a younger, teenage audience. I wouldn't do that. I'd just make the relationships more important.

--ADAM WEST

 
#3
 

I realized, after all the work I'd done ... some stupid films, some real chestnuts, some good stuff, the regional theatre, the Mark Taper forum in L.A. ... on and on, that no matter what I did, or the reviews I got, that people loved my Batman. So I might as well make an agreement with it and enjoy it as they do.

--ADAM WEST

Actors want to be loved. "Batman" has done that for me.

--ADAM WEST

 
#1
 

How many actors have a shot at being a part of something that became a part of pop culture? It's been very rewarding. I'm not getting the 20 million bucks for the new movies, but at least I'm getting warmth and recognition from people wherever I go.

--ADAM WEST
