Because Everybody Is Entitled To My Opinion

In Memoriam: Frank Gorshin

Frank Gorshen, the man of 100 faces died today. He is best known for his role as the Riddler in the '60s TV show Batman. Barking Moonbat Early Warning System has a tribute.

I remember also that Gorshin was a very accomplished impersonator. One of my fondest TV memories was him impersonating Kirk Douglas on stage with the real Kirk Douglas. Other accomplishments include a one man show impersonating George Burns. He was nominated for an Emmy for his role as The Riddler. He earned another Emmy nomination for a guest shot on the original "Star Trek," a 1969 episode called "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield." Trekkers know Frank played a two-toned alien. He and his wife were married for 48 years. That's a real accomplishment. He is survived by his wife and son, and a sister. He will be missed. Pray for his family.
