Yes, every day is retro day here at the unaward-winning Terminal Pictures - what with all this Batmoney being made Bathand over Batfist, I thought I'd turn back the clock 90 years or so with:

"Silent Shadow of the Bat-Man" - A retro 1920s Dark Knight short

Part One:

Part Two:

A 12 minute short depicting the origin of "The Bat-Man" and introducing his amazing skills and astounding abilities... Bob Kane and Bill Finger drew on a lot of silent films to create Batman, and I've always wanted to give the story a try using silent film techniques. What with that whole copyright/waste of time thing, you'll have to settle for this collage. Here are the original influences re-arranged to tell Bruce Wayne's story and his crusade against crime. A bit of fun not intended for sale or commercial exploitation... what with the huge commercial value of silent films and everything.

Make sure and check out part two for the Rogue's Gallery: featuring the fiendish Joker!
Oswald Cobblepot, AKA The Penguin... The Cat-Woman! The unspeakable horrors of the Scarecrow! The scientific genius of R'as Al Ghul! All this and pulsepounding, teethgrinding excitement as "The Bat-Man" falls into the Joker's trap - literally.

Jack Pickford as Bruce Wayne
Conrad Veidt as The Joker
Werner Krauss as The Penguin
Olga Baclanova as The Catwoman
George Beranger as The Scarecrow
J. Carrol Naish as R'as Al Ghul
Eddie Gribbon as Inspector Gordon
Louise Fazenda as the Woman of Ill Repute

Hope you folks like it! Would love to get some feedback.
