'Batman' actor Pat Hingle, who played the butler in the film, has died following a battle with leukaemia at the age of 84.
Hingle, known for his role as Commissioner Gordon in the original Batman movie of 1989 and its three sequels, passed away at his home in Carolina Beach, North Carolina on Saturday, 3 January, the Contactmusic reported.
The veteran actor kicked off his career in 1948 but a fall from a elevator shaft cut short his celluloid dreams and he had to give up films to recuperate from his injuries.
He restarted his career playing Warren Beatty's father in 1961 film 'Splendor in the Grass'. He is the only actor alongside Michael Gough, who plays Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred, to star in all four of the original Batman movies.
