    That is an interesting theme!
    A bit of protection that lurks in the background, then pops to the fore when needed one way or the other. Usually misunderstood and given powers beyond it’s true abilities.

    It just worked out that way but two of the four Photo Play movies feature bulletproof vests that _fail_ to stop a bullet.

    The Dark Knight showcases the use of a bulletproof vest without having the wearer open his shirt and reveal it to the audience. I’m, of course referring to Lieutenant James Gordon’s death. :O)
