Silent Bat Man

When I first saw this, I thought it was delightful. And then I was struck by confusion. Wasn't Batman a thing rather later than the 1920s? In fact, yes. This is a modern splicing of 1920s footage with new cards to do a Batman story with not-originally-Batman footage. But it is really well done. Enough so that I was fooled into thinking it was something original. So take a moment to check it out. If nothing else, it is really cool that someone was able to do this. Also, I love bats, so I think the bat movie footage, bat special effects, and semi-frightening bat costume are all fantastic. You can find the rest easily on youtube if you find this fascinating.
