Superman (1978) Poster


Jackie Cooper: Perry White



  • Perry White : Now listen to me, I tell you boys and girls - whichever one of you gets it out... is going to wind up with the single most important interview since... God talked to Moses!

  • Perry White : Lois, Clark Kent may seem like just a mild-mannered reporter, but listen, not only does he know how to treat his editor-in-chief with the proper respect, not only does he have a snappy, punchy prose style, but he is, in my forty years in this business, the fastest typist I've ever seen.

  • Perry White : Now look. The Post: "It Flies." The News: "Look, Ma, No Wires." The Times: "Blue Bomb Buzzes Metropolis." The Planet. "Caped Wonder Stuns City." We're sitting on top of the story of the century here! I want the name of this flying whatchamacallit to go with the Daily Planet like bacon and eggs, franks and beans, death and taxes, politics and corruption.

    Clark Kent : I don't think he would lend himself to any cheap promotion schemes though Mr. White.

    Perry White : Exactly how you would you know that, Kent?

    Clark Kent : Uhm... Just a first impression?

    Perry White : Well, anyway, who's talking cheap? I'll make him a partner, if that's what it takes!

  • Perry White : Olsen! Why am I paying you forty dollars a week when I should have you arrested for loitering? Go get Mr... er...

    Clark Kent : Kent.

    Perry White : ...Kent here a towel!

    Jimmy Olsen : Right, Chief.

    Perry White : And make mine black and no sugar!

    Jimmy Olsen : Right, Chief.

    Perry White : And don't call me 'sugar'!
