James Batman 1966

Our next look at those movies from around the world inspired by the 66 Batman TV series takes us to the Philippines.  Mere months after the premiere of the television series, James Batman burst on to Filipino screens.  In fact, the movie came out before the American theatrical one did.  That in itself is impressive, but then there is the added wrinkle of Batman teaming up with James Bond.‚Äč

That's right, two of the "Three Bs of the 60s" as Adam West once stated are featured in this film.  It's a shame that the boys from Liverpool are not represented in this film.  It might have made it more interesting.

John and Robert Long sit down once again in the Batcave and break down this film and it's not as pretty as the last one, even with the help of subtitles.
