BURBANK, Calif. - Actor Frank Gorshin, the impressionist with 100
faces best known for his Emmy-nominated role as The Riddler on the
old "Batman" television series, has died. He was 72.

Gorshin's wife of 48 years, Christina, was at his side when he died
Tuesday at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, his agent and
longtime friend, Fred Wostbrock, said Wednesday.

"He put up a valiant fight with lung cancer, emphysema and

could say, 'This is step A, B and C.' But I can't do that. I do it,
you know. The ironic thing is I've done impressions all my life I
never did George Burns."

Gorshin's final performance will be broadcast on Thursday's CBS-TV
series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."
