The Guy Lived Through the Depression
13 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This old guy has put all of his life saving in the lining of an old Prince Albert coat. His great grandson donates the coat to charity without his knowledge. The old guy didn't trust banks and at this time in history there were probably a lot of folk who felt the same way. Anyway, the kid feels terrible. Somehow he knows Clark Kent and entreats him to get Superman to help recover the coat. Actually the coat didn't get picked up by the charity group; instead a couple of former "jailbirds" get their hands on it. However, they sell the coat to a consignment shop and they in turn sell it to a Dickensian actor, who needs it in his performance. Of course, these bad guys are incredibly stupid and end up kidnapping Lois, Jimmy, and the little boy who started the whole thing. They are put in a smokehouse on an old deserted farm. How will Superman know where they are? There is a clue in the early part of the story that plays into the conclusion. Also, the ending is absolutely disappointing.
