    Description

    The Bat Whispers (United Artists, 1930). Lobby Cards (2) (11" X 14"). "The Bat Whispers" would be one of only a handful of 1930 features shot in widescreen, with a compositional emphasis on forced perspective and inky shadow play. Available on DVD with both versions from different 'takes', it's one of the only instances where we can watch a 1930s film like watching two different nights of the same stage play! Bob Kane has often cited this film as his primary inspiration for the comic character of Batman. Here are two great cards in wonderful condition. Only a single top border pinhole in the cards, and the 3 shot has smudges in the lower right corner. In the portrait card there is a faint scratch above Una Merkel's head, and a horizontal scuff across the card in the bottom area. Bright, fresh color. Very Fine-.
