The sequence of Batman movies beginning with Batman (1989) and ending with Batman & Robin (1997) can really feel slightly disjointed. Starting in a dark, quirky iteration of Gotham directed by Tim Burton and ending with a candy-coated cartoon fever dream imaged by Joel Schumacher, the sequence foregoes a strong sense of consistency…besides in the case of Alfred.
Veteran British actor Michael Gough holds down the fort as Batman’s congenial butler Alfred Pennyworth in all 4 movies: Batman, Batman Returns (1992), Batman Perpetually (1995), and Batman & Robin. As is more-or-less customary for Alfred, Gough’s model features as a voice of purpose all through Batman’s adventures. Whereas he is very happy to assist Bruce and his sidekicks save the world, he’d sleep slightly simpler if his surrogate son may simply get arrange with a pleasant lady and cling up the vampire costume.
Gough’s TV, movie, and theater profession began within the mid-Nineteen Forties, so to say there was slightly extra to his profession than his run as Alfred can be a considerable understatement. Gough handed on in March 2011 at 94, roughly a mere six years in need of triple digits.
