Frank Gorshin, known for his portrayal as the green-suited Riddler on the Batman television series in the 1960s, has died after battling lung cancer, emphysema and pneumonia.
Although his role as the Riddler is noteworthy, Frank is best known as an impressionist. His characterizations of Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster and Jack Nicholson in my opinion were the best. He also stared on Broadway and toured with his Tony-nominated one-man show “Say Goodnight Gracie” tribute to George Burns.
R.I.P Frank… and “Kirk,” “Burt,” “Jack,” and “George.”
