Impossible now that they are dead, but a 1940's Batman directed by Orson Welles, starring Cary Grant as Batman and Conrad Veidt as the Joker.
Back in 2003, Mark Millar started an internet hoax that Welles had been working a Batman movie in the 1940s but pulled out when the studio insisted on casting Gregory Peck as Bruce Wayne instead of letting Welles play the part himself. The hoax inspired a couple of YouTube videos that gives you a pretty good idea of what a Welles Batman might have looked like.
Cool! That really does stir the imagination.

If anything it makes me want even more to see a period piece Batman. And, oh hell, film it in black-and-white.
