From the 1943 Columbia Pictures’ serial: “Batman”.
In Chapter 9: “The Sign of the Sphinx” Bruce Wayne disguises himself as Chuck White, a former boxer turned petty criminal-for-hire, in order to infiltrate Dr. Daka’s group of henchmen. While the henchmen question him (trying to determine if he’s legit), Chuck (Bruce) briefly casts a shadow on the wall that amazingly resembles the very profile he’d cast if he were in his Batman garb.
Just another one of those little gems that keep popping up in this series, and which keeps me coming back for more.
And now, just for fun, and keeping in my “tradition” of including a little animation: Batman desperately trying to take off.
