Take A Look At This 8MM Print Ad For The 1943 Batman Serial

Working with the Projectionist down here in the Retroist Vault didn’t start my appreciation of 8mm films but it certainly hasn’t hurt either. The other day I was flipping through some of the back issues of Creepy that Daniel XIII keeps down here and came across this nifty Batman print ad from the Captain Company back in 1966.
Batman 8mm 2
For a breakdown of those serial episodes:
Batman 8mm 3
Batman 8mm 4
Batman 8mm 5

Now I believe that Captain Company is still in business, changing it’s name to Captain Co, I’m not sure they would still accept these order forms but thankfully we can look to YouTube to get a look at the 1943 Batman serial.
