Michael Rennie as arch European criminal Sandman
14 May 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"The Sandman Cometh" was originally scripted as a single villain outing for actor Robert Morley, the Sandman a Continental arch criminal come to Gotham City to lay claim to the billion dollar fortune of much married noodle queen J. Pauline Spaghetti (Spring Byington). Julie Newmar was available for an extra Catwoman commitment, and this was the two parter into which the character was shoehorned, she and Sandman teaming up to obtain the Spaghetti billions, each plotting to double cross the other once they get it. Catwoman poses as a Sleeping Beauty in a store window, Gypsy Rose Lee's unbilled newscaster allowing her to advertise the sleep inducing prowess of a certain Dr. Somnambula, the bait for insomniac J. Pauline Spaghetti, who last enjoyed a doze seven years earlier at a rock concert! Sandman easily gains her confidence, and with a whiff of sand becomes his sleepwalking slave, showing him where to find her private bank book. Batman and Robin catch up to him and his pasty faced goons inside the store where Catwoman took her catnap, Robin falling into a sand trap, Batman ready to be perforated with holes by a stitching machine.
