Hello reader! We all know that impressionist/actor Frank Gorshin popularized and immortalized one Edward Nigma a.k.a. The Riddler on the Batman TV show -- but did you know that Gorshin once released a 45 rpm record where he sings .an entire riddle-filled song .as the Riddler? He did! (Print ad for the record shown left, Gorshin in his Riddler costume pictured right).

Titled "The Riddler," this 45's A-side song was composed and arranged by the great Mel Torme. It's a charming little period piece, and you can hear it as an MP3 by clicking on the link below...

"The RIDDLER!"


Scroll down as the song plays for a Riddler photo album! By the way, the flip side of this 45 RPM single featured Gorshin as himself, singing a laid-back version of the song "Never Let Her Go." (The color version of the 45 sleeve's back cover, seen in the ad, is shown below)
