What Inspired Nolan's Joker?

I know that Fritz Lang's Dr Mabuse was a major inspiration to Nolan when writing the Joker.

Do you guys know of any other characters he drew inspirations from? I'm not talking about films you think are similar, but characters/movies he specifically mentioned as study material for writing his super villain.

I know that scene with Batman and Joker in jail was inspired (especially for Joker's part) by 1972 film "The offence". And "Joker's" part was played by Ian Bannen.
