Tonight on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the crew will be talking Fan Films.Â Joining the crew on the show are Dr. Peter Coogan and author Clive Young, as everyone runs down some of their favorites.Â To get you in the mood, we’re presenting a selection of some of the films we’ll discuss on tonight’s show.
(Part 1 of 5) Parts one and two are halves of a 12 minute short depicting the origin of “The Bat-Man” and introducing his amazing skills and 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.
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)
