Special Feature:
The Batman 1989 Production Still Gallery
Part 5- Vicki Vale & Alexander Knox

Fellow fan Thorsten Lehmann and I recently acquired a rather large collection of fantastic imagery created during the filming of Batman '89. Much of this imagery consists of still photography created for publicizing the film. These images appeared in trade articles, merchandise like the Topps card set & movie souvenir magazine, and in video packages like the Warner Preview video. Some images from the collection you may have seen before (perhaps not with such clarity), while others appear to be unpublished up to this point. :)

Since there are a LARGE number of images, I thought it best to break them down into related sections. Today's post features images of the intrepid duo of journalists hot on Batman's trail- Alexander Knox & Vicki Vale. :) Enjoy!

Saving the best for last this time... Here are a couple of shots from the "Knox is Batman" deleted scene which would have taken place at the end of the film. This scene is often remembered from the comic book adaptation of the movie. After Batman descends from the cathedral battle, he quickly tosses his cloak over an unconscious Knox. Batman quickly makes his escape, leaving Knox to be discovered beneath the cape by Commissioner Gordon-

  2. OK, I'm certain I saw that scene in the film when it first opened here Ireland in 1989. After the close-up of the Joker and his laugh box, someone says "Batman fell over here!" and they all rush over. The cape is pulled back to reveal...Knox, who then opens his eyes, smiles and says "Am I too late to make the late edition?" or a cheesy quip to that effect, implying he was in on Batman's escape.
    Of course, I can't prove it, but having never read the comic mentioned above, I dunno how else I would know about that particular scene - I remember being puzzled when it wasn't on the subsequent video release.
