NotesIncluded here to feed argument, i.e.. are disabled people portrayed any better these days? (See also 'Batman Returns' ). Flattop, Lips, Mantlis, Mumbles, Pruneface, Shoulders, The Browt are the "grotesque villains" but then this is a film faithful to the 40s comic strip it is based upon. A superb film especially in its use of colour. Vail Reese claims that Pruneface's face results from sun damage. See www.skinema.com
