There’s a video going around of Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns (1992) whipping the heads of four mannequins off in one take makes her the best Catwoman. Okay, obviously she didn’t literally cut each head off of the mannequins with the whip, but to nail that scene and make it look real in one take is incredible.

The applause from the Batman Returns crew speaks for itself. Sometimes, seeing behind-the-scenes stuff can ruin movies for me but this just makes it better. Knowing Michelle Pfeiffer did this in one take makes the final version of the scene so much more impressive. It shows her commitment to the role.
