Michael John Douglas, better known by his stage name Michael Keaton, is an American actor best known for portraying Bruce Wayne / Batman in the DC Comics films Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), and The Flash (2022), as well as Jack Butler in Mr. Mom (1983), Betelgeuse in Beetlejuice (1988), and Adrian Toomes / Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and the upcoming movie Morbius (2022).
In the Joan Rivers picture Rabbit Test, Keaton made his cinematic debut in a modest non-speaking role. Joan directed and co-wrote Rabbit Test, a 1978 American comedy film about the world’s first pregnant man, which starred Billy Crystal in his cinematic debut.
Joan’s only directing attempt, in which she also appears as a nurse in a brief sequence, and her daughter Melissa Rivers also has a small role. Edgar Rosenberg, Rivers’ husband, was the film’s producer. Mike Post and Pete Carpenter composed the score for the sole theatrical film they worked on. In a brief non-speaking role, Michael Keaton made his feature picture debut.
The title alludes to the Friedman test, often known as the rabbit test, a medical method used to diagnose pregnancy for several decades in the twentieth century. Rivers raised around half of the movie’s $997,000 budget by remortgaging her home and encouraging her father to do the same, and the other half through a series of investment arrangements after all of the major studios turned her down for finance.
