ciudad gótica

Capitalising on the enormous popularity of Adam West’s Batman television series in the US and the native appetite for lucha libre films, in 1966 a Mexican producer rather boldly made a cinematic adaptation of the caped crusader as a female wrestler. La Mujer Murciélago was a wealthy socialite, much like Bruce Wayne, who turned to social justice and crime-fighting when a mad scientist infiltrates the luchadores scene. You can watch the entirety of the strange but captivating movie at the link above.
