Batmania from Comics to Screen
9 November 2019 | by FilmCuratorSee all my reviews

Short documentary on the history of the comic book hero, Batman. This covers its root as an idea by Bob Kane, who was inspired by Mary Roberts Rinehart's book, stage play, and silent films, up to the 1989 release of Tim Burton's Batman. There is some interesting old footage, and it goes into a little more detail on the early days of Batman, than the documentary Holy Batmania. Although both are very similar. This is a fun watch if you are a fan of the Batman character.
