"Lois says to the jailed Superman, "With Clark still missing, we're a bit short-handed on this 'Flying Burglar' story; but Mr. Kent's trying to get a hold of Jimmy (and) take him off the Feature 'til Clark gets back". She obviously meant Mr. WHITE is trying to get a hold of Jimmy......"

  • Dialog Blooper?Armand Vaquer, Mon Sep 7 15:10
    I thought I caught a dialog blooper in "Three In One" today. Superman is jailed for suspicion of burglary and Lois visits him. It is mentioned that Clark is missing and then seconds later Lois says... more
    • Once again I ask...Steve Brusette, Thu Sep 10 22:49
      With all the filmed redundance to cover a scene, how did so many flubs make their way into The Adventures of Superman?

      • What am I missing?wrfarley, Mon Sep 7 19:20
        Interesting. Never noticed it. Here's one that baffles me, in "Divide and Conquer," Jim Nolt, Gary Grossman and just about everybody else writes about Everett Glass' line flub that George Reeves... more

          Yeah, I know the part you're referring to; but cannot remember the exact 'flub'. I think Everett Glass just muddles part of his Dialog ~ not real noticeable. I can't recall how [or if] George reacts... more
          • Ev Glass, Honest George & going upTed Newsom, Wed Sep 9 22:23
            Neither of the scenes with Reeves and Glass show the actors in the best light. Both actors are clearly hesitating on their lines-- all of which is pretty filled with scientific expository... more
            • Right line, wrong episodeMichael J. Hayde, Thu Sep 10 13:54
              Actually, the episode where Prof. Lucerne says, "By George, you did it!" is "Mysterious Cube," after Superman passes through the wall. And you're right, the line is in the original script. I think... more
              • So noted.Ted Newsom, Thu Sep 10 14:10
                Yes, I know the Reeves/Glass stuff covers two shows, but interestingly the problems are the same. I'm guessing they may have been shot back to back. I think of them as a piece, anyway-- they play... more

                  "I'm guessing they may have been shot back to back. I think of them as a piece, anyway-- they play almost identically." Your guess is correct... and they were even more "of a piece" than you think.... more
                • The flubArmand Vaquer, Thu Sep 10 19:22
                  I thought George recovered from the goof pretty nicely. - A.
          • I thoughtAnonymous, Wed Sep 9 13:09
            I thought the blooper was that you could hear him turning the pages of the script because he didn't remember the lines???
          • Surely there must have been re-shoots now and then.Steve Brusette, Tue Sep 8 19:24
            An overhead light goes out during filming. Someone misses his or her mark entering a room. An actor flubs a line so egregiously that the shot just can't be used. I read In Mr. Hayde's book (yes... more
            • That's not quite true, Steve. You might already know this, but in films, you might flub a line in a master shot, then shoot the same scene in the medium shot or close up so that the line is covered... more
              • right... in theory.Ted Newsom, Thu Sep 10 21:47
                wf: You'[re right-- in a perfect world, you've got any given scene in a half-dozen different angles, beginning to end. However, TAOS wasn't in a perfect world. Ideally, you'd "cover" a scene with the ... more

                    I tell ya, Steve, there are flubs all over the world of filmdom. Sometimes they work amazingly well. In ON THE WATERFRONT, for instance, in the park scene, Eva Marie Saint accidentally drops her... more
