Yarasa Adam (1973)

Betmen Yarasa Adam is a crazy and low-budget Turkish superhero movie from 1973. It certainly portrays the Caped Crusader in a different light than westerners are used to seeing. He’s a smirky, big-haired guy who smokes, uses a gun, frequents strip clubs (with Robin in tow), roughs up women, and habitually screws around behind his girlfriend’s back. There is a cat-petting villain who resembles Blofeld.

The film has a little mild nudity, so be forewarned. The film is in pretty so-so condition. In particular, the soundtrack is somewhat warbly and tinny. Although this movie is in unsubtitled Turkish, it hardly matters. This movie is for fans of cult cinema and crazy old Turkish films.

Savas Esici

It was directed by Savas Esici, and stars Levent Ãakir, Emel Ãzden and Altan Gunbay.

Yarasa Adam Bedmen is a bizarre concoction which pits Batman and his sidekick Robin against a Blofield like villain who could fit in perfectly in a James Bond film. Batman is not all business he finds time to woo the ladies and when things get to R Rated he even sends Robin out of the room. Someone wants to silence all the beautiful women in town so they send their henchmen to track them done and kill these lovely ladies before they can speak. Lu

ckily Batman is nearby as he foils the henchmen’s attempts to kill his chance as getting tail.  In a race against time Batman must find out who is behind this diabolical scheme before all they kill off all of his potential hookups.


Writing a synopsis for a plot that is as wacky and confusing as Yarasa Adam Bedmen is not an easy task. The bad guys never have a chance in this film since Batman and the boy wonder Robin are skilled martial art like fighters with fine tuned acrobatic leaping skills. Even though the plot is all over the place one need not know exactly what is going on to enough the insanity that ensues. One of the coolest tricks of Batman & Robin is that they can be dressed in their normal clothes and when they get out of a car they are in costume.

Unlike all the Hollywood version of Batman this version doesn’t try to hide his identity as he freely reveals who is under the mask many times. This Batman is not family friendly as he sleeps with many women. Also most of the female cast members appear to be allergic to clothing which comes off without hesitation once Batman arrives. The films soundtrack is a melting plot of music cues from some very famous films like Henry Mancini’s “Charade”, an instrumental version of the Rock N Roll song “Whole Lotta Love” and several music cues from various scores that John Barry composed for the James Bond films series.

Ultimately Yarasa Adam Bedmen is classic example of Turkish cinema melting pot style of filmmaking.
