Daily Batman: Movie Moment – Batman: The Movie (1966)

December 18, 2009

Though the producer had wanted to film the movie before the TV series, production didn’t start until network execs were sure they had a hit. Thus the gift of Batman: The Movie was not received by its awe-stricken public until July 30, 1966, between the first and second seasons. It’s quite the show.

Title sequence.

Favorite tagline is “MEN DIE! WOMEN SIGH! Beneath that Batcape — he’s all man!” and the best line is when Batman says, “They may be drinkers, Robin, but they’re still human beings.”

Holy papier-mâché!

Robin: Holy sardine!
Batman: Hand down the shark repellent Batspray!

The others I can understand, but whale repellent?

Riddler: You and your trained, exploding shark!
Penguin: How was I to know they’d have a can of shark repellent Bat-spray handy?
