1920s Batman Returns in “Mark of the Mad Hatter”

The good news: the guy doing the silent film version of Batman let himself use some of the 1940s Batman serial, so Batman looks like Batman, and not that weird version from that old The Bat German movie. The bad news: Although this is called “Mark of the Mad Hatter,” the Hatter really just sits in his cell. I don’t think he does anything. And the ugly: since the story takes place in Arkham Asylum and Batman gets gassed with Scarecrow’s fear gas, it’s really just an excuse to put together a plethora of sanitarium clips and the most fucked-up, disturbing silent film footage the director could find. Enjoy!
