Dir. Spencer Gordon Bennet. 1950, 15 chapters. In this sequel to the very popular 1948 Superman serial, Kirk Alyn’s Superman faces arch-rival Lex Luthor (Lyle Talbot), who is disguised as the Atom Man and plans to destroy Metropolis. With its footage of floods, earthquakes, and bridge collapses, the sequel is more action-packed than the original. Recommended for ages 8+.
