The Man of Screen Podcast Episode 22 - The Adventures of Superman: No Holds Barred/The Deserted Village

In episode 22 of the Man of Screen podcast, Bob Fisher will return to the show to dig up the dirt on some shady professional wrestling deals and to investigate why everyone in the sleepy little hamlet of Cliffton by the Sea have deserted the place.

First, Perry White brings in an expert to expose some injuries in the wrestling industry. Clark checks out Bad News Brannigan’s hands and Superman appears as a genie to an Indian swami. But the most important question becomes this. What does Clark do that makes Lois never want to see him again for as long as she lives.

Then, it’s on to Cliffton as Lois can’t get ahold of her former nurse to thank her for sending a gift. So what do Lois and Clark do? They drive out to investigate. Meet the nervous townspeople and met the friendly neighborhood druggist and his son as our intrepid reporters investigate a mysterious fog. And you’ll want to know what they find in a cave by the sea.

So, join Mike Zummo and Bob Fisher for “No Holds Barred” and “The Deserted Village.”
