Lorenzo Semple Jr Batman writer passes away

Screenwriter for the 1966 Batman movie and 1976’s King Kong, as well as episodes of the “Barman” television series starring Adam West and “The Green Hornet,” Lorenzo Semple, Jr. passed away Friday at the age of 91.

In regards to his career, Semple said, “I think Batman was the best thing I ever wrote, including those big movies. As a whole work, it came out the way that I wanted it to and I was excited by it. I once went down to a fancy wine tasting benefit in Princeton. When people found out I wrote Batman they mobbed me! I was astounded, but that was the way it was.”
