Harlan Ellison has been issuing collections of his television screenplays, made and unmade, in a series of volumes entitled Brian Movies.
The fifth volume contains;
Though Harlan’s written numerous comic book scripts for the Dark Knight, his first slide down the Bat-Pole was in 1966 when he pitched an episode to ABC’s Batman, starring Adam West and Burt Ward. Tragically—for reasons explained in the editor’s notes—“The Two-Way Crimes of Two-Face” treatment was never produced, but now you can read what the Unrepentant Harlequin had in mind for the Dynamic Duo and their Bifurcated Foe.
He talks about this book and another collection of short stories, Honorable Whoredom, right here.
Neil Gaiman asks;
Harlan Ellison wrote an unbroadcast 1960s BATMAN Two-Face 2-parter? And it is now in print? WHY IS THIS NOT NEWS? http://t.co/hcoTzDHVTA

Well, Neil, it is now. And can be purchased here. The next question is… who will re-create this lost episode on YouTube?
