Actress Shelley Winters, who played the dastardly Ma Parker in episodes 43 and 44 of Batman, is dead. Of the roughly three dozen "special guest villains" who opposed the Dynamic Duo in the feature film and series, which began 40 years ago this week, 11 are still alive:
Julie Newmar (Catwoman)Services: Wednesday and Thursday, 7:30 PM, Gotham Prison Chapel.
Eartha Kitt (Catwoman)
Lee Meriweather (Catwoman)
Joan Collins (The Siren)
Zsa Zsa Gabor (Minerva)
Glynis Johns (Lady Penelope Peasoup)
Cliff Robertson (Shame)
Barbara Rush (Nora Clavicle)
Malachi Throne (False Face)
Eli Wallach (Mr. Freeze)
And, frighteningly, Van Johnson (The Minstrel), who must be 150.
