Yesterday I received an email from my good friend Edward Ball, who informed me that he and his wife have been watching the television series Batman from 1966, and had discovered in a scene in the episode The Clock King, first transmitted in October 1966, contains a reference which pre-dates the Prisoner. The reference takes place while during one of their in-jokes when Batman and Robin are walking-up-the-wall. Sammy Davis Jr suddenly opens a window.......well watch for yourself, because as it happens, someone has up-loaded the very scene on YouTube...........Just clik on the link below.
