BatmanBatman and Robin shimmy their way up a smokestack to avoid being gassed by the Joker, and then have to report to Commissioner Gordon and Chief O’Hara that the Joker has escaped once again. The Joker calls with a ransom demand for the kidnapped foreign dignitary – and it’s a demand that will cost Batman as much dignity as it will money. It’s only then that Batman realizes that there has been no kidnapping.
