The subject in question – written by Glitter and Mike Leander and published in March 1972 – plays in the film during the publicized scene in which Batman's iconic rival dances as he steps down stairs.

Sex crimes

Glitter, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, has been accused since the late 1990s of various sexual crimes.

In 1999, he was sentenced in United Kingdom to 4 months in prison for downloading images of child pornography. Later, in 2006, the singer, who then resided in Vietnam, was found guilty of obscene acts towards two minors and was imprisoned again until his release in 2008.

However, in 2015 Glitter returned to jail after being convicted of attempted rape and other sexual crimes and sentenced to 16 years in prison.
