History of character has not yet been written.

  • Black Widow gives her name, marital status and address as "Mrs. Max Black, widow, 411 Lava Drive" while at the bank. While her den is indeed located at 411 Lava Drive, there is a possibility she may have been spinning a yarn (if you'll pardon the pun) about her name and marital status.
  • Black Widow was portrayed by Tallulah Bankhead (who is billed in the opening and closing credits as 'Miss Tallulah Bankhead'), in what was to be her last acting performance before her death on December 12, 1968.[1]
