Observation for Now

I like the people who, whether they know it or not, dare to be different, dare to think in an unapproved fashion about things that we are not supposed to think about once we are all grown up.

Superman (Doesn't) Make It Rain on Their Parade


Oh, come on, now! Even a cheerful "Good Morning!" backfires on the hapless Man of Steel.
Note the doll the child actress is carrying. Artist Curt Swan is very careful to dress the doll in a British Colonial uniform, which makes sense since this film is being lensed on location in India.
Surely the child's name, Darlene Curtis, CAN'T be a play on the name of our penciller, Darling Curtis -- or can it?
Once again the Action Ace improvises a solution to the quandary he inadvertently caused. Now, anybody could freeze a lake and melt it above the film crew (as in Superman III). As Superboy, Superman made a giant rubber hose from waste tires to channel a river to his whim. But now we're getting fancy!
A giant atomizer to spritz the water over the film scene! That's too much, baby!
