He appeared in “Batman in ’Lights…Camera…Crime !‘,” published in Action Comics #524.
He was pretending to direct a movie involving a bulldozer plowing through the city bank. Batman swooped in, and tied up the bulldozer operator. While he and the “cameraman” watch helplessly, Batman strolls up to a nearby refrigerator and steals some Hostess™ Cupcakes.
The Crime Director yells “Cut ! Cut !” which is a signal for his pirate henchmen to try to cut Batman with their cutlasses. Batman tosses cupcakes at them, and they are foiled. Then Batman escorts the Crime Director away, saying, “Now you can show your films in prison…to a Captive Audience !”
He compensates for his baldness by wearing a hot pink hat. He also wears a pink shirt, pink pants, pink boots, a white jacket, and dark sunglasses.
He’s one of them criminal masterminds, fer shure.

None. Note that, unlike his henchmen, he does *NOT* have a CIA to Hostess Cupcakes. They probably had to put this guy in Arkham.
