How many faces are false?
14 May 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Holy Rat Race" concludes the most unique two parter of the entire series, as Malachi Throne's False Face continues his criminal reign of terror, while his accomplice Blaze (Myrna Fahey) tips off Alfred (Alan Napier) with a radio broadcast that leads him to contact Batman via wrist radio; ordered to destroy this means of communication, Alfred reluctantly does so, enough to free one wrist and enable the Caped Crusader to burn away the bonds tying himself and Robin to the subway tracks, watching it speed by with a sigh of relief. Meanwhile, False Face is determined to flood the Gotham City National bank with counterfeit money, only to be foiled by Batman yet again, leading the Batmobile on a merry chase inside an abandoned movie studio, and the adoption of several disguises to elude detection. The crafty villain was successful when impersonating Chief O'Hara, but as Commissioner Gordon fails to hold his handkerchief in Gordon's right hand: "always the little things!" False Face exits with another threat for Batman, but this time he wouldn't keep his word. Malachi Throne would receive billing in the closing credits and essentially enjoy the last laugh, working nonstop for another 40 years, one of the unsung villains who posed a very real threat to the Dynamic Duo.
