Japoteurs (1942)

** (out of 4)

The title itself should prepare you for the rather un-PC content in this WW2 era Superman episode. This time out the Americans are building a huge plane, which is where we find Lois and Clark who are doing a story on it. Lois ends up staying on board as it takes off and later some Japanese men take it over and threaten to drop a bomb on America. If you've seen one of these shorts then you should know Superman must come to the rescue. This short really isn't too entertaining but it's interesting to see as a film buff because of how Fleischer took a look at Japanese people during the times of WW2. I'm sure many will be offended by the look and talk of the Japanese people here so it's important to keep in mind what was going on in this country at the time. As far as the film goes, it's pretty much the same thing we've seen in the previous shorts with very little excitement.
