Newt's movie review

It's very typical of comics of the period where an unlikely yet intrepid hero is made, he falls for the girl, saves a local industry, and then saves the world from Nazis. This one however, includes Lucky Lindy, Howard Hughes, WC Fields and Clark Gable just to make it feel a little more real.

It's not that great, not particularly exciting, and certainly not worth going out of your way for.
