Batman (Two-Disc Special Edition) 
Amazon | IMDB
Plot Outline: The Dark Knight of Gotham City
begins his war on crime with his first major enemy
being the clownishly homicidal Joker.
Plot Synopsis: Gotham City: dark, dangerous,
'protected' only by a mostly corrupt police
department. Despite the best efforts of D.A.
Harvey Dent and police commissioner Jim Gordon,
the city becomes increasingly unsafe...until a
Dark Knight arises. We all know criminals are a
superstitious, cowardly lot...so his disguise must
be able to strike terror into their hearts. He
becomes a bat. Enter Vicky Vale, a prize-winning
photo journalist who wants to uncover the secret
of the mysterious "bat-man". And enter Jack
Napier, one-time enforcer for Boss Grissom,
horribly disfigured after a firefight in a
chemical factory...who, devoid of the last
vestiges of sanity, seizes control of Gotham's
underworld as the psychotic, unpredictable Clown
Prince of Crime...the Joker. Gotham's only hope,
it seems, lies in this dark, brooding vigilante.
And just how does billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne
fit into all of this?
