Who Needs Superman?
This movie premiered a generation before I was born, but I can tell you word for word what many young couples said as they were leaving the theater after watching this action adventure thriller:
"George, Why can't you be more like Richard Talmadge? Did you see him jump from one building to another? Four tough hoodlums after him and he fought them all off . . . and when three big policemen tried to arrest him, he got away and even stole a police car . . . . . sigh . . . . what a man!"
"Mabel, maybe if you looked more like Janet Chandler I could do some of those tricks, but honey, that was just a movie . . . real people can't do those things, honest . . . it was all just tricks with the camera."
"Ohhh, you men . . . your mind is always in one place . . . all you can think about is the hot blonde in the movie . . . Talmadge really did those stunts, none of it was faked . . . don't you know that he was part of the Barnum & Bailey Circus as one of the famous Metzetti acrobats? Two of the Metzetti brothers were even two of the diamond thieves that were after him . . . all of those stunts were real, I can tell you that!"
"Okay Mabel, I'll run away from home and join the circus . . . is that what you want? Maybe I can meet Janet Chandler there . . . "
"George, you will be the death of me yet . . . you just see how long it will be before I make your favorite liver and onions for dinner again . . . you just wait and see . . . !"
"Mabel, you drive me to drink . . . and baby . . . it isn't a long trip!"
Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn and enjoy the show.
