Long before the Dark Knight could rise, Bob Kane put pen to paper and created one of the greatest superhero icons ever. That was back in 1939 when Kane created The Bat-Man – and the rest is pop culture history.
Back in 1992, Bob Kane was a guest on our Beverly Hills-based coffee shop chat show Lemack & Company LIVE. While we have featured some clips from that interview in the RerunIt.com collection previously, we have just added nearly 18 minutes of never-before-seen (since its original live broadcast) footage from that program.
In it, Kane talks about his background, his upbringing, how The Bat-Man came to be created – and what he thinks of those who have donned the cape and played the role on film and in television up to that time.
My bad 1990’s hair asides, I am happy to share this with you. Enjoy!
