 This was a keen favorite retro  movie as a  child.  I hero worshiped Catwoman.  The props, gadgets, scenery  and studio set locations  grabbed my imagination .

 I revisited it yesterday  [antipodes Boxing day] after being in receipt of a new Blu ray player.

 It had not paled with time! It retained its full techni colour  madness . .  I felt transported back to my spiritual roots.

Age helped me appreciate the adult themes and jests, and other subtle subliminal   references lost on me as a child. It remains a classic.

It has Kraken images, submarines, flying machines,   dock side tavern,  Victorian  buildings  furniture and accessories,  high camp cos play ... I wont spoil the  rest for you ...

- The opening criminal lair, "Ye Olde Benbow Tavern" is an allusion to name of the tavern in which the the Robert Louis Stevenson novel "Treasure Island" begins, "Admiral Benbow Inn". Commodore Schmidlapp is abducted by the fiendish foursome. The next novel by R. L. Stevenson is "Kidnapped".

- The BatBoat was built especially for the film by the Glastron boat company. In exchange for their cooperation, the producers agreed to hold the film's world premiere in Austin, Texas, Glastron's headquarters.

- The distance from the Bat-Cave to Gotham City is 14 miles.
