George Sanders the first Mister Freeze
15 May 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Instant Freeze" introduced a character from the comics known as Mr. Zero, renamed Mister Freeze for the series, with the surprise casting of George Sanders in the role. Sanders was not only a Hollywood veteran, and Oscar winner for "All About Eve," but his resume included many British features as well, such as "Village of the Damned." He did very little television overall, with BATMAN the last series he ever appeared in, making this a rarity in that Mister Freeze would be the only character to be played by a different actor on all three occasions, followed by Otto Preminger and Eli Wallach. Sanders is burdened with a German accent as Doctor Shivel, who became the ice cold arch villain after a tussle with Batman in his lab resulted in his being doused in a liquid freeze solution of his own creation; now he announces his presence in Gotham City by destroying an ice skating rink by flame thrower (an unbilled cameo from a teenage Teri Garr), producing a sheen of ice in the street to prevent police pursuit. In the vernacular of crime, 'ice' is synonymous with diamonds, so he next goes after the Star of Kashmir, then the Giaclio Circlo, belonging to Princess Sandra of Molino (Shelby Grant). Once the Dynamic Duo shows up, Mister Freeze is forced to use his freeze gun on them, turning the pair into human popsicles.
