1) PUBLIC PULSE --
As a follow-up to an item in TAC, Jr. #27, several readers identified
White's line about an editor keeping his finger on the public
coming from "The Big Squeeze." The exact lines were
KENT: But he's innocent! What are we going to do, just walk
away from him?
WHITE: Kent, you know as well as I do, if an editor takes
his finger off
the public pulse, he's dead!
KENT: All right, Chief. But will you hold off just a little
I think Lois and I will pay the Graysons another visit.
WHITE: All right. A little longer. And that means little!
2) I WAS A TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN --
Michael Ramey wants to let everyone know that I Was a Teenage
Frankenstein featuring Phyllis Coates will air on Sunday,
February 21 at
3AM. According to their web page the movie has the original color
3) SUPERMAN MUSIC ON CD --
Regarding the release of music from the Superman TV series on
CD . . . the
Varese Sarabande website lists a CD featuring the music composed
Williams for "Superman: The Movie," but this is not
the one described in
TAC, Jr. 27. A later one will indeed feature some of the
familiar music from
the TV series. I'll have more on that later.
4) MORE ABOUT LEO PENN FROM JIM BEAVER --
Leo Penn (the director) wasn't in a Superman episode, but he
had a strong
connection to George anyway. I interviewed him several years
were both in the Army Air Force and worked on military training
together. George was not only a good friend of Leo's but of his
well. Leo was an actor, but moved into directing. He directed
scores of TV
shows up until just before his death. He also occasionally did
role, even toward the end.
