The Riddler passes away

by on May.18, 2005, under General News

Frank Gorshin, fames impressionist but perhaps best known for his role as The Riddler in the campy Batman series of the 60s, passed away at the age of 72 after fighting lung cancer, emphysema, and pneumonia. Trek fans will also remember him from the TOS episode “Let That Be Your Last Battlefield”, playing the half-black, half-white Commissioner Bele. Most recently in 2002 the man with “100 faces” played George Burns in the one-man Broadway show “Say Goodnight Gracie”, using very little makeup.
