Heritage

Adam West, notably known for his role as the titular character Batman (the film was produced and distributed by 20th Century Fox Film in 1966), created a formidable connection with his fan base, nationally and internationally. In homage to Adam, who will forever be a pop culture icon and hero, we are sharing a few of our favorite photographs of him with his ever-dedicated fans.

He is and will be greatly missed.

The Fox Archives is mandated to collect, catalog, preserve and make accessible the following assets of the 20th Century Fox studios: props, set decoration, photographs, art department and publicity materials from our film and television productions, and from the 20th Century Fox studio itself. We work primarily with internal Fox groups but also from time to time with outside organizations such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry.
