Inscribed program signed "For/My Dear Friend,/Mel-/Elizabeth Sanders" and "Bob Kane". B/w, 8 pages, 5½x8½, bound with two staples. Undated Tiffany Theatres production of Clifford Odets' The Country Girl, by Bob Kane Productions, with Kane as Executive Producer. In 1939, 18-year-old KANE (1915-1998), born Robert Kahn and a doodler, was challenged by his boss at DC Comics to create a superhero. Kane responded by ingeniously combining the fear of bats and the use of disguises from the 1920s silent films The Bat and The Mark of Zorro with drawings from Leonardo da Vinci to create his heroic character, Batman. His renderings of Batman, Robin and their villainous counterparts transcended the fledgling comic book industry. Kane's superhero and his alter ego, Bruce Wayne (modeled on the artist himself), have been the subject of a campy TV series (1966-1968) and a series of Batman films, including Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995), Batman & Robin (1997), Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008), as well as a spin-off film, Catwoman (2004). SANDERS was Kane's wife until his death. She played a cameo role in Batman Returns and later was seen as Hollywood gossip columnist Gossip Gerty in Batman Forever and Batman & Robin (Kane had also made a cameo appearance in Batman & Robin). Fine condition.
