Take a gander at these senses-shattering screen-grabs from the 1973 NBC-TV movie, JARRETT! Not only did this crime series-that-never-was star future "Pa Kent" Glenn Ford (in 1978's SUPERMAN-THE MOVIE), but some scenes feature Ford going toe-to-toe against a maniacal (he shreds comics books) pulp paper collector! I've identified a few of the captivatin' comics used liberally in the background of certain scenes, but how many Bronze Age covers can you spot? Click images below to enlarge and enjoy!

A poster of a Don Heck-drawn WONDER WOMAN #294 is (sadly) lost in the destruction!

|Titanic thanks to Steven Thompson for unearthing this TV gem!|
BONUS: More comics tie-ins ya want? Previous episodes of JARRETT also co-starred Yvonne Craig, also known as "Batgirl," from the 60s BATMAN series!
