Batman the Movie has one of the best opening scenes ever. Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder are investigating a mayday originating from a yacht belonging to Commodore Schmidlapp, boss of Big Ben Distilleries. As Batman drops down to land on the ship, it mysteriously disappears leaving the Dark Knight up to his utility belt in the ocean. Suddenly, he is attacked by a shark ... what can save him? Thankfully, Robin is on hand with a handy can of Shark Repellent Bat Spray that just happens to be stored in the cockpit of the Bat-copter. Performing an entirely arbitrary upside-down hanging stunt on the Bat-ladder (an ordinary rope ladder with a handy sign attached to the bottom rung), Robin passes the spray to his mentor who then uses it to repel the outrageously obvious rubber shark. The scene sets the tone for the whole film; tacky, wacky, camp, hilarious. I bloody love it.
Alan Napier, who played Alfred the butler was Neville Chamberlain' s cousin. Chamberlain was UK Prime Minister from 1937-1940. There is a distinct similarity of appearance.
During the three series and feature film, Burt Ward exclaimed 'Holy *****!' a staggering 352 times, all of them different. They ranged from 'Holy Agility!' to 'Holy Zorro!'
