The Man of Screen Podcast Episode 26 - The Adventures of Superman: The Evil Three/The Riddle of the Chinese Jade

In episode 26 of the Man of Screen podcast, Bob Fisher will join Mike Zummo for what appears to be a fishing trip gone wrong.

Perry White and Jimmy Olsen decide to park for the night at the Hotel Bayou, which Perry remembers to be a “fine hotel.” 

But things are far from fine as Jimmy and the chief encounter the dead owner’s nephew, a mysterious colonel, and a crazy cackling woman? What about the ghost that continues to haunt the place?
Who you gonna call? SU-PER-MAN!!!!

Then find out what the dead hotel owner has in common with a former Golden Age newspaper editor as we encounter “The Evil Three.”

Then it’s off to Chinatown for an unveiling as Lu Sung plans to donate the invaluable Quan Yin Jade to the U.S. as a show of appreciation for what the country has done for him and his family. But others would rather see the statue stolen and sold.
Who’s involved? Why is Henderson so upset with Clark in this episode and above all who is the guy in the circus suit?

Find out as Clark Kent and Inspector Henderson answer “The Riddle of the Chinese Jade.”

    In episode 6 of The Man of Screen Extra, Mike Zummo completes his four-part miniseries on the DCEU movies with a look at the latest release, “Suicide Squad.”

    Did Mike love it? Hate it? Kind of like it? Did it bring the crazy like he expected? Well, you’ll just have to listen to the episode to find out as Mike introduces you to the characters, treats you to a synopsis, and then gives a detailed rambling on his thoughts on the film. AND his thoughts about how important Superman is to the DCEU.

    Detailed rambling because Mike recorded this episode without taking a word of notes.

    The Man of Screen Podcast Episode 25 - The Adventures of Superman: The Runaway Robot/Drums of Death

    In episode 25 of the Man of Screen podcast, it’s time for a mix of science fiction and voodoo as Mike takes you through the next two episodes of The Adventures of Superman.

    Meet Horatio Hinkle, Daily Planet rural correspondent, eccentric inventor, and the guy the Daily Planet staff desperately wishes would stop talking. And then meet his robot hero, which walks around about as well as you would expect a man in a metal suit to do so. Find out what the eccentric nerd does to get past his guard Jimmy Olsen? And did Mike really compare him to Batman? What is going on here?

    Plus you’re not going to want to miss what really burns Inspector Henderson’s butt about “The Runaway Robot.”

    And then it’s off to the jungles of Haiti as we search for Perry White’s sister and Jimmy Olsen, who disappeared while investigating a citadel. Who is this mysterious voodoo witch doctor and what are the jungle drums really telling us? And what does Clark do to keep the Haitian government officials in a state of confusion.

    And can you believe that voodoo drum language is not offered at Harvard?

    So grab your percussion-English dictionary as Mike deciphers the “Drums of Death”.
