Cool find.I'm in the midst of reading West's book Back To The Batcave, which came out in '94. I found a copy at a local library. It's been a fun read so far.What's also interesting about it is that he writes about his pre-Batman days. Growing up, he was known as Billy Anderson. I didn't know that Adam West wasn't his real name. West is actually his middle name, though. After he got a gig on a Western show, it was decided that he'd use the middle name as his surname. He said he liked the way "Adam" looked with "West". Boom. New name.He also wrote that the reason the bat ears on his cowl were so short was so that closeup shots could be tighter.
Oh, he also wrote about how painful that photo shoot turned out to be.
