One funny story is the scene where Batman and Robin have to pick up the unconscious Mr. Freeze and put him in a block of ice, Adam said Preminger stiffened his body and resisted being picked up. Twice Adam tried to pick him up but he couldn't pick up over 200 pounds of resisting weight. So he "accidentally" stepped on Preminger's hand. After that Preminger let him pick him up.
Haha, thanks for the info, that's hilarious. I need to pick up Adam West's book.
