If you're a fan of Batman: The Animated Series, you're probably too young to have watched many Hollywood movies from the 1940s; on the other hand, you might just be the type to appreciate classic Hollywood films.

At any rate, the series' practice of prefacing its episodes with title cards clearly owed something to the art and style used in movies sixty years ago. The pages below are a tiny selection of title cards and opening themes from some old movies. No direct comparisons are made or intended between these images and themes and those used in Batman: The Animated Series. Still, it is not hard to imagine some of these gracing the opening of never-made episodes of Batman.

And Then There Were None
The Big Sleep
Cat People

The Ghost Ship
Isle of the Dead

The Maltese Falcon

The Mummy's Hand
Stage Fright
