We are on day 3 of our Joker discussion and we hope you have enjoyed the first two days where we looked at Joaquin Phoenix and Zach Galifianakis. As we continue forward we will now look at the campy and unforgettable Cesar Romero.
We continue with the help of our friends within and outside the Spoiler-verse we will figure out who the quintessential Joker is. Leading up to our Rankings of the Clown Prince of Gotham.
Obviously the first choice. Tall and angular, he played it with a wink and a nod. He was insanely happy, but when he dropped his voice, you knew there was violence and mayhem lurking inside. Best laugh. (read more from Jay here)
It’s legit hard for me to put him down this far. His portrayal is iconic, it is the staple for what Joker was in the 60’s. And the not shaving the mustache is the stuff of legends. (Read more from John here)
Meh, those are ‘okay’ shows for the time. (Check out Kaylie on Spoiler Country)

When you got an actor like Cesar that Refused to shave his mustache for the role he was actually not that bad of a Joker, but when they put on the face paint for him they actually just painted over his mustache to match the white face paint so you could barely notice it. (watch JT steam here)
Because.. Classic. There is always something noteworthy about a pioneer. (see Jon’s artwork here)
I remember as a child sitting on my dad’s lap eating cookies and watching reruns of the old 1966 Batman show. Cesar Romero was the first Joker I ever witnessed and was a perfect and eccentric character for the time.(read more from Robert here)
Decent, but too cartoon hack Mobster for my tastes. (read Sara’s other reviews here)

Classic. Cool. Refined. The man liked a good gag and was the Platonic Ideal for what the Joker can be. (see all Casey’s posts here)
