Description
Bob Kane's comic book hero first hit the screen in 1943 in this 15-part serial by Columbia. Not as slick as the competing series by Republic, Batman makes up for its production shortcuts with sheer exuberance and over-the-top entertainment (a trapdoor in an office with an alligator pit below?) and such gee-whiz features as a radium-powered death ray, laboratory-made zombies, and the original Bat Cave. Batman (Lewis Wilson) and Robin (Douglas Croft) protect Gotham City from the evil schemes of Dr. Tito Daka (J. Carrol Naish); produced at the height of World War II, the film's anti-Japanese sentiment is loud and clear. Sony—a Japanese company—has opted to leave the original stereotypes and slurs intact for the sake of the series' historical value.
