The Dark Knight of Gotham City begins his war on crime with his first major enemy being the clownishly homicidal Joker.
In the movie, Alicia Hunt (Jerry Hall) is the trophy girlfriend of Carl Grissom, the most powerful crime lord in Gotham; previously a model she now spends most of her time shopping. But then she begins an affair with Jack Napier, Grissom’s enforcer. As a result of Grissom’s revenge Napier falls into a vat of chemicals and is transformed into The Joker. In turn he murders Grissom and takes control of The Mob.
When Alicia returns sees the joker for the first time she faints. The Joker then mutilates her face as a work of ‘homicidal art’ turning her into ‘"a living work of art’. Some time later Alicia jumps or is thrown out of the appartment window.
