    re Superman and phone booths: there was a joke going around when I was in primary school in the late ’70s.

    Q Why does Superman wear his underpants on the outside?
    A Have YOU ever tried getting changed in a phone booth?

    Now I can’t say this predates Superman the Movie, but it shows the idea was current enough for school kids to make jokes about it in Australia at the time.

    As an aside, the tag line out here was “you’ll believe a man can fly”. As about 10 year olds seeing the film our response was that Aussie witticism, pig’s arse.
