1.] Batman (1943, 15 part serial)

Batman was a 15-chapter serial released in 1943 by Columbia Pictures. The serial starred Lewis Wilson as Batman. The plot is based on Batman, a US government agent, attempting to defeat the Japanese agent Dr. Daka, at the height of World War II. The film is notable for being the first filmed appearance of Batman and for providing two core elements of the Batman mythos. It introduced "The Bat's Cave" and its entrance through a grandfather clock, which subsequently appeared in the comics. The serial also had an effect on the depiction of the Alfred character in later Batman works. Alfred was overweight and clean-shaven in contemporary comics, but the later comics portrayed him as trim and sporting a thin mustache following William Austin's appearance.
