From Wikipedia: “New Adventures of Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder, also known as simply Batman and Robin, is a 15-chapter serial released in 1949 by Columbia Pictures. It is a sequel to the 1943 serial Batman, although with different actors. Robert Lowery played Batman, while Johnny Duncan played Robin. Supporting players included Jane Adams as Vicki Vale and veteran character actor Lyle Talbot as Commissioner Gordon.”
This second Batman serial sports more serious acting and direction than the well-known tv show from the 1960s (though plot-wise, there isn’t much difference). It has a nice atmosphere of gloom and menace, comparable to the crime B-pictures of the period. This is episode 12: Robin Rides the Wind. Each episode includes a short recap of the earlier parts.
Excellent print with very good image quality.
Released by Columbia Pictures, US, as Robin Rides Wild.
