DARK KNIGHT OF THE BAT – a documentary to trace icon roots

darknightA Philip Gardiner documentary

Traces back the roots of THE BATMAN in comic books,tv,movies and RADIO !

Gardiner examines the influences of all that surrounded Bill Finger and Bob Kane to create an iconic symbol soon to be played by Ben Affleck.

The flash animation is limited and suppose pointed ears or chest emblems are not public domain use.

Stock footage is pretty impressive of linking :Dracula books and films,Zorro footage and styles of costume to Batman similarities,Superman as perhaps a less cooler rival and just The Vampire Bats nuances displayed in character’s comics and all merchandise since.

The saving grace of dvd is BATMAN MYSTERY CLUB radio pilot from 1950,rarely ever heard and a one of treasure.
