1940s Batman!

Is Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy too mainstream for you? Did you feel the Schumacher sequels weren't cartoonish enough? Was the Adam West TV show nowhere near as campy as you would've liked? Fear not! Just a few short years after the creation of the character, audiences were treated to this black-and-white Batman serial. Thrill as the World's Greatest Detective and his sidekick Robin retrieve their costumes from a filing cabinet, race to the scene in their nondescript loaner Batmobile, and struggle to defeat the inept henchmen of masked villain The Wizard!
