lol. I have quite a few, particularly if they feature Lee and/or Cushing. Also, by hook or by crook, I managed to get dvds of every movie Christopher Lee appeared in as Dracula or an unnamed vampire, Hammer or otherwise.

Actually, on Christopher Lee, I've even got a legitimate Beta copy of MEAT CLEAVER MASSACRE, the 1977 stinker whose producers Lee threatened to sue because they bought footage of some narration he had done purportedly for a different movie and stuck it into the beginning and end of their totally unrelated movie! But I would have bought that one, almost impossible to find in any form now, even if Lee's footage hadn't been stitched into it. I bought it because I appeared as an extra in it way back when...hahaha.

Hey, I was in a Christopher Lee movie!!

He's not the main villain, but kind of a bounder in this one. He borrows money from Jekyll while cavorting with Mrs Jekyll.

It's rather decadent for 1960. Mr Hyde wants to taste all the pleasures of London night life. I've not seen anything like that snake act since.

I think she was credited as "Poodle Lady" as she carried one (in fact it caught the programmed flying batarang).

Right you are! Batman Returns (1992).

Directed by Tim Burton. Quite a cast with Michael Keaton, Michelle Pfeiffer, Danny DeVito, Christopher Walken and of course Anna Katarina billed as the Poodle Lady. The success of the first Batman movie afforded Burton carte blanche on the sequel and it shows. From the strange retro and visually captivating imagery to the sexual innuendo and kinkiness of Catwoman. Has anyone looked sexier in black patented leather than Pfeiffer? A close second would be Carrie-Ann Moss (7 years later) in The Matrix. Some writers claim that Batman Returns captures the essence of the DC Comic character better than any other version made. Revisit the film to see if you agree.

And don't forget 6'6" character actor Vincent Schiavelli, always instantly recognizable and quite often rising above the material with his performances (e.g. Ghost). Used too little here, but still imposing.

The script always intrigued me with numerous references to duality, and the lines themselves having a "duality" characteristic of "this, or that." You can see it in Penguin's first introduction, speaking to the teasingly named Max Shreck.

I always liked the teaser poster, and the poster version with "The Bat ... The Cat ... The Penguin" tagline. I still have a bookmark from the film's release; wish I had the set.

Here's an alternate cover for CDs (low res version for MP3s).
