Wow! I thought I was the only one who had seen the “Buck Rogers” movie! Wonder whatever happened to it?

Prior to the release of the first SUPERMAN movie, I had the privilege of meeting Noel Neill, the best-remembered Losi Lane, in person. She was at my old college and brought an original script from the tv series and students took part and read the script. She joked that Mario Puzo got involved because he was the one who could Lois and Superman in bed together. In SUPERMAN 2, that’s what happened. I find it sad that we treat our heroes this way-instead of the all-American symbol he once was, Superman was brought down to a lower level. When Superman was on tv, the producers went to great lengths to preserve his image as a moral hero. They even cut Lois out of the breakfast food commercials, as they felt it was indecent to have a woman with two men (Clark and Jimmy) in an apartment in the morning. Whole episodes were scrapped when they felt there was violent or immoral content. By the time the newest SUPERMAN came around, Lois is living single with a child. Why can’t we preserve some decency and morality in our heroes? Perhaps that is one reason why America has had such flawed leaders in recent times.

Carl, This is my report: I was all set and ready to go. My daughter, who did not have the advantages I enjoyed, was anxious to see the movies on the big screen. As we were about to enter the door, the tv flashed a tornado warning, in the area that extended from my home to the area of the theater.
It was a dark and stormy night. The wind howled. The rain tore ferociously at the ground. Hail viciously attacked in a resounding assault upon our windows. Broadcasters ceaselessly pleaded to stay off the roads. But, did that stop me from seeing the movies?

No. I just pushed in the DVDs and held me own festival at home!-Here’s hoping I get to see “Gorgo” next week! If not, I have my DVD ready…just in case!
