‘The Riddler’ Frank Gorshin Dies, RIP

Posted in: Personal

Actor Frank Gorshin, best known for his as The Riddler on the old “Batman” television series, has died at the age of 72.

It is unfortunately just another in a long line of great actors from my youth that have departed who provided so much laughter and enjoyment. He was a comedic genius and will certainly be missed.

“He put up a valiant fight with lung cancer, emphysema and pneumonia,” Mrs. Gorshin said in a statement.

Despite dozens of television and movie credits, Gorshin will be forever remembered for his role as The Riddler, Adam West’s villainous foil in the question mark-pocked green suit and bowler hat on “Batman” from 1966-69.

Riddle me this: Who was the best Riddler character ever in all Batman shows and movies? No question about it, it was Frank Gorshin.

God bless.
