In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films that took 30 years between them to get made.

Batman (1989) was announced twice before it finally got going. Rewrites continued throughout filming – with a $100,000 prop to fit in – and there was a bit of a casting backlash.

Our Ladies could have been made much earlier: but co-writer/director Michael Caton-Jones dug in, and refused to Hollywood-ise the story.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
