A masterpiece of pop art. A great example of 40's animation. Pretty good Superman as Clark and alter ego try to figure out what kind of mechanical monster (which looks suspiciously like the Iron Giant) robbed the bank on the same day a ritzy jewelry store opens.
The Superman shorts were at one time the most expensive cartoon shorts ever produced. They pretty much bankrupted the Fleischer studios because while they were gorgeous and popular, they didn't make their money back. But watch them carefully, and, as one reviewer wrote, "you can't help but be impressed by them. They're beautiful, awesome, majestic. Nothing in superhero cartoons came close to rivaling them for the next 50 years..." Posted by Casey Kazan.
