Yes, this was the Ford Futuracar, which became the famous Batmobile. The production still and trailer are from "It Started with a Kiss" (1959)
Of course, after refreshing my memory of our own much more subtle “war”
with A.M.P.A.S. trying to secure a long overdue Oscar for Glenn Ford a couple years back, I suggested to Virgil that what he really needs is some well-orchestrated HighViz attention focused on this festering land-grab problem that the Keepers have fallen victim to. Perhaps if you have a chance to vacation in Vermont again this summer or fall, we could finally meet and give you the Grand Tour of the Keepers site so that you might see the possibilities for yourself first-hand that exist at the Keepers’ site in Rotterdam Junction.
The photo below is Anne Francis talking with Virgil January at the Keepers during the film festival at the Glove Theatre in June 2003.
Thanks for all of the favors past and future.
