Batman Fan Film Made by Minnesota High School Students in 1966 Discovered

Talk about a fun bit of cheesy nostalgia. In 1966, long before the internet, DVDs, VHS or cell phones, a group of Minnesota’s Washburn High School students produced a 30-minute Batman fan film using a borrowed 16mm film camera from the audio-video department. They wore homemade costumes to create their own versions of Batman and Robin, thanks to a few moms who fired up the old Singer sewing machine. The students also drove what is presumed to be the family cars which were transformed into a Batmobile and another for the villain, Professor Sin. The budget was collected from one-dollar donations from fellow students (named as “shareholders” in the credits). Using $51 donated by fellow students to start, then another $50 more by generous relatives to finish it, and paying $3.00 per 3-minute roll of film meant that most shots had to be done in one take.
