YouTube Wednesday: The Man of Bronze IS the Man of Steel!

The recent Doc Savage posts have produced some of the biggest hit counts this blog has ever seen!
So, for this week's videos, we're going with The Man of Bronze and Ron Ely as two Clarks, one Bronze, one Steel!
First up, the rarely-seen behind-the-scenes featurette from the 1975 movie...

UPDATE: It's been deleted! Damn!
Then, the original theatrical trailer...Have no fear! The Man of Bronze is HERE!

Ron Ely reciting the Code of Doc Savage
(C'mon, admit it! He did a damned good job!)

UPDATE: That's been deleted, too!
Well, to make up for the deletions, here's the two major fight scenes in the flick in one clip!

And a very special treat: Ron Ely as the Golden Age Superman!
 From The Adventures of Superboy third season finale; "The Road to Hell Part II"
Don't worry, the opening synopsis gives you all the background you need...


Coming soon: The Doc Savage stories from Marvel Two-in-One and Giant-Size Spider-Man, as well as the Giant-Size Doc Savage one-shot, none of which are included in DC's trade paperback reprint! PLUS: the text features and pin-ups from the Marvel comics and b/w magazines!
Note: the Reading Room posts for all superhero (and superheroine) stories in the future will appear in our brother blog Hero & Heroine Histories, where previous entries have been "rerunning" several days later.
Bookmark it, or go to it and load the rss feed to keep up with, among other things...
The Shadow's Silver Age run from Archie Comics!
The COMPLETE Fox/Farrell Phantom Lady by Matt Baker!
The Green Hornet (Golden AND Silver Age)!
The SECOND Captain Marvel! (The one between SHAZAM! and Mar-Vell!)
Jet Dream and Her StuntGirl CounterSpies: the Complete Saga!
..and much MORE superhero(ine) stuff from 1938-1978!
