    • QUOTES (1)

      • Burt: Come now, I'm a con man. I know a game when I see one.
        Superman: Then perhaps you'd better tell me what this game is.
        Burt: It's a game called Let's Make a Deal.
        Superman: If you know anything about me at all, you know I don't make deals.
        Burt: There's always a first time. Now, if you'll promise to get me away from here safely before the police arrive, I'll tell you where the picture is. The picture that proves that you and Clark Kent are actually one and the same person.

    • NOTES (3)

      • An interesting piece of misplaced logic occurs when the mother and her son are so convinced Clark Kent is Superman that they show him the photo as proof. The photo shows Superman taking of his shirt and jacket but still has on his suit trousers. But how do the mother and son know this is Kent as this picture clearly shows Superman without the glasses on.

      • John Eldredge played opposite George Reeves in the Warner movie Always a Bride (1940).

      • Later Billy Gray played Bud Anderson on "Father Knows Best."

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Casey Jones:
        When a henchman sets up a train crash, he says, "This is better than Casey Jones." Jones was a famous railroad engineer who was killed in 1900 when his speeding train collided with a freight train. A 1957-8 TV series starring Alan Hale, Jr. was based on the character.
