Agreed. If I were being generous, I’d say that Pat Hingle was giving us a spot-on version of Jim Gordon circa 1941, but by the time of Batman Returns in 1992, we’d just had two decades of stories that had made Gordon a more compelling and multi-dimensional character. (To put things in perspective for everyone, 1992 was also the year that Jim married Sarah Essen.) Burton’s Golden Age-esque Gordon felt like a real disservice as a result, and Hingle only got sillier as time went on.
“Handsome, dazed, and to die for.”
One more kiss before we die
Face to face and dream of flying
Who are you? Who am I?
Wind in wings, two angels falling
To die like this with a last kiss
It’s falsehood’s flame, it’s a crying shame
Face to face, the passions breathe
I hate to stay but then I hate to leave
Agreed @chintzybeatnik. It’s one of my most fave as well. This track is a standard on my playlist.
It’s a solid film, but there is just absolutely no way that TDKR could ever stand against . Not. ever.
Y’know, I almost tagged you because I wanted to see how you’d respond, but then I remembered your username and realized that I already knew your answer and just how cool you are
You’re pretty cool as well, LadyBat.
@DC89 please be sure to let @DC89 know that I wish her a Merry Christmas, and by the way I like the music from Batman Returns.
I tend to listen to the Batman Returns score over the Batman 89 one.
That would be Scandalous! LOL!
Do you think “Face to Face” was a holdover from when they were considering putting Two-Face in the movie?
Despite the Face connotations, I think the lyrics reflect Bat/Cat perfectly.
That’s a very good question, it would’ve also been a perfect song for Two-Face like Kiss From the Rose was for Batman, and Partyman for Joker.
For more Selina and Bruce
There will be a

Personally, I Feel That Bruce Wayne Would Marry Rene Montoya, Ellen Yin or Zatanna Zatara!
They Have A Lot More In Common!
If Bruce Wayne Would Marry A Villain, I Feel That It Would Be Lady Shiva or Nocturna!
One slight problem w/ that
No love for global villian Talia Al Ghul?
Batman and Green Arrow Should Go On A Double Date!
Batman and Talia Al Ghul and Green Arrow and Nyssa Al Ghul!
I Used Too Dream as A Kid That Batman Battled Michael Myers and Saved Laurie Strode and Her Friends Lynda and Annie!
Then, Bruce Wayne Would Date Laurie Strode!
I Have Dreams Where Batman Dates Buffy Ann Summers and Elena Gilbert!
That’s Buffy From Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Elena From the Vampire Diaries!
