The Bat Film Poster


An early comic thriller about a villain who stalks his prey wearing a bat's head. `The Bat' was thought to be a lost film until a crumbling nitrate print turned up at Boise State University in Idaho. Painstaking restoration followed and the new version is almost completely intact. Director Roland West also made a 1930 sound film called `The Bat Whispers' which has also been restored.
