Heath Ledger Paid Tribute to His Daughter in the Film

The Joker Hospital

Warner Bros.

Although Heath Ledger’s Joker is a terror, there’s one touching tidbit buried in one of the character’s key scenes. As the Joker blows up a hospital after impersonating a nurse, we see that his nametag says Matilda, which just so happened to be the name of his daughter. This tribute is touching, of course, but it’s also a little disturbing given the context.

It’s cool that her dad was willing to pay tribute to his daughter. It’s unfortunate that the only way he could do so in the context of his movie was to pin her name on his chest seconds before he blows up a hospital.
