How to Handle Being Drunk
All these Batgirl pin-ups yesterday and today made me wonder which wonderful actresses have had the honor of donning the Batgirl garb.
Interesting trivia note: Bob Kane and Sheldon Moldoff decided Batman and Robin needed female counterparts to stave off the gay rumors about the characters. So in 1956, Kathy Kane appeared in Detective Comics #233 as Batwoman and in 1961 Betty Kane appeared in Batman #139 as Batwoman’s sidekick, Batgirl. Then in 1967, Julius Swartz took over as editor and both Batwoman and Batgirl were replaced by Barbara Gordon as Batgirl in Detective Comics #359.
On screen, the first Batgirl was Yvonne Craig in the 1966 Batman television show. Yvonne was learning ballet and took up acting as a way to pay for her ballet training.
She was in a ton of television shows and also in the movie In Like Flint in 1967, and in late ’67, joined the cast of Batman as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon. You may also remember her in green makeup as the Orion Marta from the Star Trek: The Original Series episode Whom Gods Destroy.
Next we jump to 1997 to Batman and Robin. Alicia Silverstone played Batgirl in what has been deemed the worst Batman movie ever made.
Regardless of the horrible movie, Alicia Silverstone is uber frickin’ hot! Oddly enough, this film was the down point of Alicia’s career. She had previously been in The Crush, which netted her two MTV Awards, and in Clueless, which netted her two more MTV Awards. She also won an award for Batman and Robin. Unfortunately, it was a Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actress. After Batman and Robin, Alicia left the limelight, but returned to play in Beauty Shop with Queen Latifah and Scooby Doo with Sarah Michelle Gellar. She’s a vegetarian and wrote a vegetarian diet book.
In 2002, Dina Meyer took up the role of Barbara Gordon in the short-lived WB show, Birds of Prey.
Although she never technically played Batgirl (she only appeared as Batgirl in flashbacks), Dina Meyers is a stone-cold fox, or, uh, bat. Dina did a lot of television shows such as Beverly Hills, 90210, Friends, and Ally McBeal. Her breakthrough role was in the movie Johnny Mnemonic with Keanu Reeves. She probably most recognized for her roles in Starship Troopers, Star Trek: Nemesis, the Saw franchise, and her roles on CSI, CSI Miami, CSI Las Vegas, and NCIS. One of her most recent roles was in Burn Notice.
And there are two other lovely ladies who have graced the screen as Batgirl, in a much more revealing fashion. In 2010, Batman XXX: A Porn Parody was the creation of Vivid Entertainment and Italian adult film producer and director Axel Braun. Batgirl is played by the lovely Lexi Belle.
And in 2012, adult film star Sunny Lane picked up the cowl for Batgirl XXX: An Extreme Comixxx Parody directed by Robert Black.
Batman XXX: A Porn Parody was the best-selling and best-renting title of 2010 for obvious reasons. But actually, the film is amazing in regard to keeping true to the 1966 Batman series. Axel Braun was eager to produce the parody because of the tongue-in-cheek nature of the original show. Braun was dedicated to keeping the film as similar to the original as possible:
“I like to do things that look the same…This movie cost $100,000, which is a lot of money for a porn movie. It looks like an episode of the TV show…The costumes are amazing. I went as far as finding the same fabric and dyes.“
The production even went as far as renting one of the Batmobiles used in the original TV series and had the sets custom built by Film Studios LA.
Here are a couple SFW trailers that shows some of the amazing production detail!
