Batman: The Movie (1966)by: MMM.Commentaries • tags: 1960s • Batman • DC.Comics • feature • free
From MMM Commentaries:
The first of two commentaries from MMM which hope to delve into the complex psyche that is Batman, the 1966 Batman film unfortunately doesn’t offer us much insight, but as compensation it has a rubber shark.
When the four greatest arch super-criminals ever to plague Gotham City join forces, their only objective can only be the entire world! Armed with Penguin-personalized a pre-atomic submarine, an army of ruthless pirates, exploding sharks and octopi, and an arsenal of polaris missiles, the Penguin, the Joker, the Riddler and Catwoman have set their sights on the United World Security Council! Can the dynamic duo, Batman and Robin, stop the United Underworld before its too late? Will they save the Security Council from almost certain dehydration? Can they possibly save the free world from the four most powerful villains it has ever seen? One hint: The worst is yet to come…!
The 1966 Batman film is one that the MMM holds very dear to its collective hearts, and we invite you to join us as we take a trip down memory lane with this amazing movie.
This commentary was recorded using the R4 DVD. It will work with all editions.
The Penguin submarine! … Instead of propellers, it’s got bloody flippers! … Which would be where Tom Clancy got the idea for the Red October.— MMM Commentaries,
