Exposing A Bully
10 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After two crime stories, they went back to silly stuff as Lois and Jimmy get stuck in "Dry Gulch" on their way to somewhere else. This old-fashioned town is run by a bully named "Gunner Flinch" (Myron Healy) who bullies everyone in sight, has 10 notches on his guns, cheats at cards, steals his two best friends money each week, and then threatens to kill Jimmy Olsen if doesn't "get out of town by sundown." That's one of about two dozen corny lines thrown in here in the first 10 minutes. Some of them are hilarious.

After Jimmy is thrown in jail, Lois calls Clark Kent for help and Kent and Superman - could they be one-and-the-same? - rescue Mr. Olsen and eventually put the bully in his place, exposing him as nothing but hot air.
