Mobile rotary red "Batphone"

ROTARY Batphone? That kind of misses the point. Back in the 60s you needed one regular phone and one hotline that just had a single button set on speed dial to connect Commissioner Gordon’s office to Wayne Manor.

Come to think of it, it’s pretty lucky the Commissioner never noticed the red phone sitting on Bruce Wayne’s personal desk on any of his many visits there. “Hey, I have a phone just like that in my office! It’s a dedicated line that connects me straight to Batm—OH MY GOD HOW DID I NOT PUT THIS TOGETHER EARLIER”
