      Just wanted to let everyone know that the rough cut of the film is done! It's taken a long time and I appreciated everyone's patience. We're now working on the fine cut and next comes color correction and mix in January and February. Licensing some of the clips has proven to be difficult but we hope to have the film completed early in 2013. I'm really happy with it and I hope you guys all love it. Thanks again for your support!

      Did the movie ever come out? I haven't heard anything in forever.

      Thank you

    11. Creator David Lorenz on April 8, 2011

      Not only am I hoping that Adam West getting his much deserved Walk of Fame Star will make a happy ending to this film, but also, that all this support may bring attention to The Powers That Be so that the Batman series may finally come to DVD!!

    12. Creator laurie thyne on April 8, 2011

      I'll be more than happy to participate in any way to get Mr. West his star..let us know what needs to be done. If you need any costuming for your film let me know, I'm a costumer & my folks have a period clothing costume house here in LA, if you wanted to re-create any old scenes from Batman! Good luck w/ production!

    13. Creator Tom McCabe on April 8, 2011

      Good Luck to James Tooley too on the film production!
      As a life long fan of (the only Batman in my book) Adam West - I salute you tonight and hope to be present at the ceremony when you recieve your well deserved Star in Hollywood!

    14. Creator Diane Sahar on April 7, 2011

      We did it!! Congratulations to James Tooley, all of Adam's family and especially to Adam West himself!

    16. Creator Helen Darras on April 7, 2011

      I am proud to have gone Kablam!!!!, as I've never gone Kablam!!!! before. Always good to try new things! I'm also proud to be a part of team of nearly 300 backers who so generously gave to such a wonderful cause. Also congrats to Adam's director James Tooley! I'm in NYC tonight, but I'm flying to LA tomorrow & I'll be in Hollywood tomorrow afternoon....and when I'm there I'll be wondering what spot will be picked out for Adam West's NEW STAR! Yay!!!!

    17. Creator Jeremy Krall on April 7, 2011

      Awesome job everyone, such a worthwhile cause for an unbelievable actor. My son just turned 4 and he has been a fanatic since he was first introduced to Batman two years ago. They just don't make shows or actors like this anymore. Congrats on reaching the goal and now let's see that star!!

    18. Creator David Lorenz on April 7, 2011

      WOO HOO!! YES!! 20 hours to go, and we are over the goal!!! Holy telethon, Batman!! We did it!! Adam West can get the Star he deserves!!

    19. Creator Michele Myers on April 7, 2011

      I am happy to pledge to this worthwhile cause. Let's make it happen and give Adam his well-deserved star!

    20. Creator Helen Darras on April 7, 2011

      I've worked at several autograph shows, where Adam West also appeared, spanning the country from Boston to Cleveland to San Diego. A few years ago in Boston, Adam read the biography I wrote about a former TV Munster. The next morning, Adam sought ME out at MY autograph table & told me I did a great job & that he really enjoyed reading the book I wrote! It doesn't get ANY better than getting Captain Q AND Batman's approval! I will never forget your kindness Adam. I well remember watching Batman on TV in 1966. I loved the groovy blue colored album cover on the 33 1/3 LP by "The Bat Boys." I spent many hours watching that red label go 'round on my record turntable, imagining a bat signal might appear out of nowhere! When I hear this song, I remember the THRILL of growing up in the 1960's:
      As Adam would swoop down to save the day for Gotham City, so shall I swoop down to help get Adam the Star that he already put, in our eyes!
      With Sincerity & Love to Adam West, his family & his friends, Helen Darras

    21. Creator Diane Sahar on April 7, 2011

      Okay, I just went to Kablam!! I promised Adam when he was doing a convention in Pittsburgh several weeks ago that I would kick in as much as I could if it was needed in the final hours of the pledge drive. Well, I just did that. I can't think of a better way of showing my admiration and respect for Adam than being a part of this project. I'm honored to be a part of this process. He gave me such joy when I was a child, now I can give back to him in this way. Keep your fingers crossed that this pledge drive goes all the way to its goal! Love ya, Adam!

    22. Creator Don Woods on April 7, 2011

      Its time to push this over the edge. I just upped my pledge and if every other backer does by $10 we are there.

    23. Creator Diane Sahar on April 6, 2011

      I just upped my pledge, too. We're so close; it's a nail biter! We're rooting for you, Adam!

    24. Creator Don Woods on April 6, 2011

      I feel like we can all push this over the edge. if all 267 of us Just pledge another $35 tomorrow we are golden. $35 is one night out at the movies.

    25. Creator laurie thyne on April 6, 2011

      I had to come back & pledge another $25.00, I'm a mom of 2 boys who adore Mr. West as much as I do..we're hoping for this to happen and will plan on being there to see it all happen!!

    26. Creator Michele Myers on April 4, 2011

      I certainly hope that you reach our goal. C'mon and pledge, everyone!

    27. Creator David Lorenz on April 1, 2011

      I am trying to remain positive. 6 days left, and $11,918 is still needed to achieve the $30,000 goal! I have been spreading the word on Facebook, and everyone I can think of! I hope we make it! I very much want to see Adam West get his Star!

    28. Creator DeSiree' Fawn on March 31, 2011

      Good luck! I just reposted to Facebook and told all of my friends to sponsor. Hope to see this project complete!

    29. Creator Isrrael Espinoza on March 23, 2011

      Oh man! The clock is ticking, we're not going to make it.....HELP!!!

    30. Creator Nicole on March 18, 2011

      Spreading the word and proud to be a backer. Good luck James and Adam. Well done!

    31. Creator Julia Browning on March 7, 2011

    32. Creator Barbara Rowland (deleted) on March 6, 2011

      Many thanks for the opportunity to show my support. I certainly hope Adam West receives his well deserved Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame:-)

    33. Creator Aaron Balcom on March 6, 2011

      I never imagined that he DIDN'T have a star already! Who would seriously NOT want to see this happen?!

    34. Creator Larry Westcott on March 3, 2011

      I am surprised that a star such as Adam didn't have an Adam but he is still a Star of a man... Long live!

    35. Creator James Tooley on March 1, 2011

      Thanks so much for your really means a lot! This project WILL come to can continue to help by telling all your friends! We've still got a long way to go but we're going to get there!
      Much appreciated,

    36. Creator Diane Sahar on March 1, 2011

      Thanks for the opportunity to show my support and admiration for Adam West in a concrete and creative way. I truly hope this project comes to fruition.

    37. Creator MANUEL GUTIERREZ on March 1, 2011

      Just like the previous two, I wish I could give some more (that associate producer title sounds super tempting), but in the meantime I'll keep spreading the word about this project. As much as I love Kobe Bryant, I can't believe he has a star on the walk of fame and Adam West does not

    38. Creator James Tooley on February 28, 2011

      Thanks so much for your pledge! We really appreciate the support. We've got a long way to go but we're going to get there! Adam deserves it! Please continue to spread the word....
      Thanks so much,

    39. Creator David Lorenz on February 28, 2011

      I too wish i was able to give more! Adam West deserves a star, and I sincerely hope he gets it! I truly hope the goal is met!

    40. Creator James Tooley on February 25, 2011

      Thanks for your pledge Brian....we really appreciate it! And what a great idea...Ralph is definitely getting an associate producer credit! Thanks & keep spreading the word!

    41. Creator Brian Bell on February 25, 2011

      Heard the interview on Kevin and Bean this morning, Adam deserves a star!!! Hope you make it to your goal guys, I wish I could give more.

      p.s - I want to see Ralph Garman's name on this as an "Associate Producer" backer!
