The Silent Shadow of the Bat-Man

I’m not sure how bats were involved in that song either, Sean.
I did stumble on this, though. Someone pieced together bits of several classic movies to make a retro silent film telling the story of Batman. Most of the films used were actually influences on Batman being created.
The sources listed as being used were:
THE BAT (1926)
THE MAN WHO LAUGHS (1928)
THE CABINET OF DOCTOR CALIGARI (1920)
Edison’s FRANKENSTEIN (1910)
THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ (1910)
BATMAN (1943 for Ghul and Wayne in Lab)
The Man Who Laughs for the Joker was perfect. The original was in two youtube videos, which I’ll show here, but it looked like he’s done followups.
