Discussing screenplays in a book club format

Batman (1966) by Lorenzo Semple, Jr | #14

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na Screenplay Book Club!

This week, we talk about movie theater snacks, pitch our idea for our new film Baby Mash, and discuss the campy and wildly entertaining script for 1966's Batman.

Things to Consider:

  1. How is dramatic irony used throughout the script? Is it successful?
  2. Do the heroes’ victory ever seem cheated? Does it matter since this is a comedy?
  3. How can you tell this is not a modern script?
  4. How would you describe the tone of voice in the script?

Matt's Thing to Consider:Discord
Hunter's Thing to Consider: Binky

Next week's screenplay: Untitled Comedy by Mindy Kaling
