Bits 'n' Pieces: From a "Bat"-voice to a Bach and beyond

Warner Bros. animation crew sticks to tradition

Kevin Conroy is the man for the job, Cinematical and World's Finest Online report, on the new animated feature from the crew that brought us "Batman: The Animated Series," et. al. Conroy, the longtime voice of Batman throughout the animated series of the '90s to the present (as well as Bart Fallmont to us "Dynasty" fans), will voice the Caped Crusader for the "Batman: Gotham Knight" collection of vignettes, to be released straight to DVD, Blu-Ray, etc. (see earlier posts of this blog).

Catherine Bach's legacy lives on

It's an understatement, isn't it? That Catherine Bach's lovely, leggy legacy in those short-shorts will live on and on, the length of her legs and beyond? Well, we're obligated to state the obvious once again when we come across a fun feature item like this one in Canada's Calgary Herald.

Diahann Carroll: Thanks for letting us know!

The "Dynasty" diva Dominique Devereaux is releasing a new autobiography later this year, and we're glad to hear that "The Legs are the Last to Go" (Daisy Duke aside, we rather like our own, too). You can pre-order copies of Carroll's "The Legs Are the Last to Go: Aging, Acting, Marrying, Mothering, and Other Things I Learned Along the Way," released this fall in 304-page hardcover by Amistad.

Spotted: Louise Sorel and Larry Hagman

Our own Augusta Lockridge of "Santa Barbara" and J.R. Ewing of "Dallas" are featured in the second episode of Rod Serling's delightfully, darkly delicious 1970s "Night Gallery," now showing on's TV viewing area. In "The Dead Man," the sweet little Sorel is stricken by the death of her young lover. In the episode's second segment, "The Housekeeper," Hagman has a fluffy head of hair and a full beard, as well as a rather formal manner of speaking, as he sets about switching his beautiful wife's sniper personality with the warm heart of the haggardly housekeeper. We dig Serling so much, we're going to keep watchin' those vintage episodes, so we'll let ya know who else we spot on the BRBTV radar ...
