diversionary tactics

Lex Luthor is gritting his teeth, waiting to see if Otis is going to figure out what he’s doing wrong. After waiting several moments, Luthor finally questions Otis: ”Mr. Otis, do you live in England?” Otis thinks about this for a moment, as if it’s a trick question. Can you guess what he’s going to say? I really like this little scene. It’s one of three from this sequence that I’ll be posting whenever I feel bored. My guess on why this was cut? There’s too great a distance between how far the car goes and when they finally flip it over. Same problem from the cat burlgar sequence. Continuity. Despite that, SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE has all sorts of little surprises like this that got cut in the editing room. Okay, now I’m trying to think of something else to say so I can fit this text into the space to the left of the photo. Ummm. Wal-Mart closes way too early on Sundays in Philadelphia. Tell your friends. Okay, that’s enough of that. Now, watch the clip.
