I recently watched this on Hulu and found it quite interesting and surprising to get this back story years after the creation of Batman. It is about how Bill Finger was the actual creative force behind Batman, Robin and many other characters/stories in the beginning. A sad story on many levels to say the least.

As seems so often the case, the race to give full credit goes too far. Robin and the Joker were created by Jerry Robinson, not Bill Finger.
