Plot summary

What is Batman: Gotham by Gaslight movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Batman: Gotham by Gaslight" movie plot summary.

In Victorian-era Gotham City, Bruce Wayne is operating as the bat-garbed vigilante, the Batman (Bruce Greenwood), who is feared by the guilty and the innocent alike. One night, Batman saves a wealthy couple from being robbed by three orphans (Dickie, Jason and Timmy) and defeats their abusive handler, Big Bill Dust. At the same time, Ivy, an orphan turned exotic dancer and prostitute, becomes the newest victim of the serial killer called Jack the Ripper, who preys on Gotham's poor and destitute women.
Citizens of Gotham believe the Batman and Jack to be the same man. Stage actress Selina Kyle (Jennifer Carpenter), a protector of the women from "Skinner's End", berates Gotham Police Commissioner James Gordon (Scott Patterson) and Chief (John DiMaggio) of Police Harvey "Bulldog" Bullock for their failure to stop the Ripper murders. Later that night, Selina acts as bait for the Ripper. It works, but the Ripper gets the upper hand during their fight until the arrival of Batman. After escaping, Batman asks Gordon to help him bring the Ripper down.
At the Monarch Theatre with his friend Harvey Dent (Yuri Lowenthal), Bruce meets Selina and the two bond at the Dionysus Club. Bruce realizes that not only were the two of them taken in by Sister Leslie, but that some of the murdered girls were orphans formerly under Leslie's care. Bruce realizes that the Ripper will target Leslie and rushes to save her, but is too late; the Ripper has already murdered her. At the crime scene, Bruce finds a bloody Dionysus Club pin, meaning the Ripper has to be one of Gotham's wealthy. At Sister Leslie's funeral, Bruce is met by Hugo Strange (William Salyers), claiming he knows the killer and wants to meet with Batman. Bruce also is met by Marlene, a drunken old woman who claims she saw him sneaking around when Sister Leslie was killed. Bruce's butler Alfred (Anthony Head) stops the three orphans from pick-pocketing him and offers to provide them work.
