Quotes

Ralph Garman, KROQ Entertainment Reporter: The star on the Walk of Fame has sort of become a - pet project of mine. Once I recognized that Adam didn't have his star, it really started to bother me; because, I couldn't understand why that was the case. And so we started to talk about it on the radio show and a lot of people were surprised. They just assumed that Adam had his star.

Captivating....
17 August 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I hate films like "Starring Adam West" because I began watching it at 2am and planned on only seeing a few minutes and watching the rest later. Then, at 3:30am I was STILL awake...finishing this documentary! This is because for all his faults, it's hard not to like Adam West or his story.

This documentary follows West's life from his childhood to today. You learn about how he got involved in acting, how he landed the role of Batman, about his nadir with acting in the 1970s and 80s as well as his more recent resurgence as a pop-culture icon. Through all this, West seems to have kept his humor and perspective and it's an engaging film from start to finish. Well worth seeing--even if you aren't a fan.
