I would say that Bruce Campbell loved that conversation. He is an interesting guy because the person and persona are somewhat similar, just that the
persona is a little more crass.
As for Adam West, that was the first one I met, back when I was a kid. He was signing autographs while in the Batman costume, and me being about 5 or
6 at the time, just straight up asked where Burt Ward was. His reaction was to ask in the Bruce Wayne voice: "Don't you mean my ward Dick Grayson
who is Robin?" From there I proceeded to explain (remember I am a kid at the time) that he was Adam West who plays Batman and Burt Ward plays Robin.
That it was a TV show. He was rather taken aback that a kid understood the differences and proceeded to ask me a lot of questions.
Looking back, he may have thought that he was being put on by some sort of Candid Camera type stunt.
There is also a local celebrity, Dr. Creep, that was the host of the local horror movie show for WKEF Channel 22 in Dayton, Ohio. I would say that it
is funny that I still have his autograph from about the same time. Only he and I got to know each other over the years as I got into acting while in
High School and became a bit of a very minor local celebrity in a way, my own self.
It has been a few years since I last talked with Dr. Creep, and sadly he hardly remembers me as age has worked unfavorably on his mind over the years.
He admitted that at best, I was vaguely familiar but trusted that he did once know me better than what his mind remembered. Of course that was
because my cousin was there, who he did know because they saw each other every year during the Halloween stuff that goes on, And I have to say it made
me a little teary-eyed. Not because he didn't remember but because he could not remember. It was just too much of a glimpse of my own future as
become older and my mind starts slipping.
Still, despite the low budget values of the costuming, writing and acting, I would have loved to have worked with him back in the day. Even in the
part of a throw away bit.
