In episode 37 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will welcome back Bob Fisher for a mixed bag of Adventures of Supermans episodes.

First, they will cover a coming-of-age story as a criminals nephew finds himself on his own after his uncle is captured by Superman. What damage has this done to the boys psyche? What will he do on his uncles behalf? Can he go straight?

And what effect is all this having on young Jimmy Olsen?

Mike and Bob will introduce you to Frankie, “The Boy Who Hated Superman.”

And then, your sides will split as the guys tackle a Jimmy Olsen comic come to life on the screen. Find out what “bit of business” Jack Larson talked this episodes director into and how much of a Humphrey Bogart/James Cagney impersonation could Jack Larson really do?

All this, rotten chimneys and George Reeves exudes nothing but sheer POWER!!!!!

Come meet, the “Semi-Private Eye.”

Next time: Next time, Bob Fisher will be back when a diver is shot in front of the Daily Planet, Perry White shows his staff how its done in “Perry Whites Scoop”. Then follow some remote-controlled model planes to disaster in “Beware the Wrecker.”
