Superman not only saves Lois, but some money, too!
18 November 1999 | by (St. Louis) – See all my reviews

This 1954 short was donated by Superman, Inc. to the U.S. Treasury to encourage the youth of the day to enroll in their school Stamp Day saving program. It is the only portion of the 1950's TV series in public domain, so whenever clips of the show are aired, this is the program they choose.

Stamp Day for Superman opens with Lois and Clark window shopping, when a burglar alarm sounds. Superman responds, and finds a contrite robber, who bemoans he never saved money and is reduced to crime to pay his bills. The rest of the story includes flying, crashing through walls, and a savings stamp book for Lois, Jimmy, Clark, and Superman. (yes, Superman!) Worthwhile for camp purposes, and the fact it was the last Superman segment shot in black and white
