I’ve never heard of A Girl Named Sandy. Does that make me young?

That’s not the name of the film but a clue to it.

In my opinion, I would’ve picked Lesley Warren as Lois, had she not acted so nervous in her screen test she just might’ve got the part. True she play Lois in a musical which I haven’t seen, I think she would’ve done a great and better job. Dont forget that Noel Neil played Lois twice. :slightly_smiling_face:

Wanted to jump back to Smallville for a couple of small things.
-SFX, Clark racing the train doesn’t work for me. His arms pump back and forth but never go back beyond his torso. This is so unnatural for running that as a runner it just takes me out of the movie. I assume the harness he’s wearing is causing this.
-Pa’s funeral, along with goodbye to Ma, are the two most emotionally resonant moments of the Smallville section. For the funeral, we get this long pan up the valley until we see the funeral party on a hilltop. This is an beautiful shot reminiscent of a John Ford epic.

Re Superboy it is incorrect

As in this link

Siegel and Shuster had little to do with this debut

Siegel was in the Army at the time. Shuster was aware of the story.

1945 Comic book More Fun 101 introduced Superboy - Superman when he was young. Superboy was not part of Siegel Shuster contract. Siegel suggested it but DC said no. DC used character while Siegel was in Army.

1947 Court Case As 10 year contract nears end, Siegel Shuster sue DC for rights to Superman and Superboy. They lose the case and are fired by DC.
