Batman (1943) flapping into Skirball Center

Don’t miss this rare complete screening of the 1943 serial. Portraying Batman’s efforts to rid Gotham of a Japanese spy ring, the work sheds light on how comic book heroes were employed to advance war propaganda and fuel racial stereotyping (1943, 260 min. No MPAA rating.)
