Dead Celebrity Friday: Frank Gorshin

An occasional tribute to a totally random gone but not forgotten  — at least not on Fridays — star.

Today I tip my hat to the dearly departed Frank Gorshin, better known as the Riddler from the campy “Batman” TV series.

Gorshin’s birthday was on Monday which is a great excuse to give the man some props today.

The Riddler was my favorite villain on Batman.  Cesar Romero’s Joker was always a close second.  For my money, the only thing holding Romero back is the fact that he smeared makeup over his signature mustache every time he appeared on the show.

Thanks for the memories Mr. Gorshin and rest in peace.
