The original Batmobile, from the 1960s TV series, was auctioned off last weekend at the Barrett-Jackson auto show in Scottsdale. The buyer was Ahwatukee Foothills resident Rick Champagne, who purchased the iconic vehicle with a winning bid of $4.2 million. The 19-foot-long, black, bubble-topped car was used in the TV show that starred Adam West as the Caped Crusader.

If you are looking for more than just a few laughs then "Arthur"
is the movie for you. Arthur (played by Russell Brand, also known
as the voice of Dr. Nefario in "Despicable Me"), is your typical
playboy who has inherited billions of dollars and is all play and
no work. This lifestyle suits him perfectly, but not for those
around him who get embarrassed by his public drunken behavior that
makes the family business look bad all the time. His mother
Vivienne (played by Geraldine James, also known as Mrs. Hudson in
"Sherlock Holmes"), is finally fed up with Arthur's behavior and
the image he is giving his family's company and decides to give him
an ultimatum. Arthur has a choice he now has to make; if he wants
to keep his billions of dollars of inheritance money, he has to
marry a businesswoman named Susan (played by Jennifer Garner, also
known as Jenny Perotti in "Ghost of Girlfriend's Past") that will
make the overall company image look better despite the damage
Arthur may have done, or he can be cut off entirely from the
inheritance if he decides to not marry her. The main problem is
Arthur hates Susan with a passion but loves his billion-dollar
inheritance and won't change his lifestyle.
