Batman and Robin (1949, Spencer Gordon Bennet)

By Andrew Wickliffe on Apr 21, 2018 From The Stop Button

Batman and Robin is fifteen chapters; all together, it?s just under four and a half hours. It is not a rewarding four and a half hours. Not at all. Of the fourteen credited actors, one gives a good performance. Don C. Harvey. He gets to be chief henchman for a while. But not even half of the serial.... Read full article


Batman and Robin (1949, Spencer Gordon Bennet), Chapter 15: Batman Victorious

By Andrew Wickliffe on Apr 19, 2018 From The Stop Button

For a few minutes in Batman Victorious, which is mostly a chase sequence?the invisible (though only temporarily) Wizard is on the run from Batman and the cops.

Especially not with Robin (Johnny Duncan) playing with a toy truck when he?s supposed to be on guard duty. See, the Wizard has stolen all the scientific equipment he n... Read full article


Batman and Robin (1949, Spencer Gordon Bennet), Chapter 12: Robin Rides the Wind

By Andrew Wickliffe on Apr 12, 2018 From The Stop Button

The chapter title, Robin Rides the Wind, got me hoping Robin would jump out of a plane or something. Without a chute. Sad spoiler: he doesn?t. The chapter does clear one of the Wizard suspects, which would probably be more effective if the character?played by Michael Whalen?appeared more often. He d... Read full article

Quotes from

Robin: What's botherin' you?
Batman: Harrison's safety. The Wizard must have heard that broadcast - perhaps he even inspired it.
Robin: Harrison's decision really must have knocked the props out from under his blackmail scheme.
Batman: Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. What's to prevent the Wizard from attacking Harrison on his way here?
Robin: Batman and Robin might.


Batman: Run the usual test for invisible ink. I'll change and go entertain Vicki.
Robin: You better be careful. I think she's beginning to get wise that Batman and Bruce Wayne are the same.
Batman: Well, if she gets too close, we know how to throw her off the trail.

Facts about

Vicki Vale would become a common character in the Batman comics after this film. Bob Kane based her on Marilyn Monroe, whom he met during the film's banquet.
If Robert Lowery's Batman costume seems a bit ill-fitting, it's because it was tailored for Kirk Alyn, a bigger man. Alyn starred as Superman in both of Columbia's Superman serials.
An animated picture of Batman as played by Robert Lowery appears in the opening credits of The Pink Panther Strikes Again.
