On June 23, 1989 I like many of you were standing in line waiting to see a little movie being released by Warner Bros. entitled “Batman”. To say it became a phenomonon is a bit of an understatement as within a few weeks Batmania had taken the country by storm. Still we have to remember how different the movie going public was at that time especially in regards to a movie based on a comic book character which is why even the investors on the film had to be convinced about the direction of the film and character and were presented this preview back in the day.
I still have quite a bit of fondness for the 1989 film and to this day at the end of the movie where Batman is standing vigil over Gotham and the Bat-Signal shines in the night sky as Danny Elfman’s glorious soundtrack washes over…I still get a lump in my throat.

A scene that wouldn’t be topped for me until three years later with this moment in 1992’s Batman Returns.
