1 "Batman" the movie has many connections to "Batman" the television show. One connection is how Batman and Robin get from the ground level of stately Wayne Manor to the Batcave. How do they do that?
Answer: They open a panel in the wall using a button hidden in the bust of Shakespeare.

One of the iconic images of the movie and television show is Bruce (usually) or sometimes Dick touching the button hidden in the bust of Shakespeare and the wall sliding open to reveal the poles to the Batcave - with poles conveniently labeled Bruce and Dick. There was an elevator that Alfred could use when he went to the Batcave, but I don't think Batman or Robin used it. One unusual feature of the film was that Batman was shown using a compressed air lift to travel back up the Batpole.

"Batman" appeared on ABC-TV for three seasons between 1966 and 1968 for a total of 120 episodes. (The first season was a mid-season replacement for the 1965-1966 season.) While the plan was initially to have the movie in theaters before the show began, it was ultimately changed to after the first season. The movie was used, however, to promote the show to other countries. There were plans to make a second Batman movie after the second season, but declining ratings later in the second season stopped that.

4 By day, I was a successful businessman and philanthropist. By night, I fought crime. Who am I?
Answer: George Clooney

Clooney, born on May 6th, 1961 in Lexington, Kentucky was cast as Bruce Wayne and his alter ego, Batman. In Batman's first scene, he and Robin responded to a call about how a guy named Mr. Freeze broke in and robbed a museum. They nearly got Mr. Freeze but he used his freeze gun to freeze Robin. Batman dipped Robin's frozen body, in water, and used a device to heat up the water,
melt the ice and save Robin. Throughout the film, Batman and Robin fought over Poison Ivy, primarily due to how Robin thought Batman was jealous that Poison Ivy liked him. Batman reminded him that he worked under him and, if he wanted to survive, he would abide by his rules. It was believed that Batman nearly killed Mr. Freeze's wife but he revealed, to Mr. Freeze, that Poison Ivy was the one behind her near death. Clooney starred in the films, "From Dusk 'til Dawn", "Syriana", and "Michael Clayton."
