Superman 2: Director’s Cut
We discuss this in the Extras… here is one of the ‘restored’ scenes (it’s actually screen test footage … and it has some SERIOUS continuity problems with Christopher Reeve’s hair and glasses). I think it’s pretty awful. So please watch it.

“Hello, Larry” Crossover Episode!
In an effort to bolster the fledgling ratings for “Hello, Larry,” NBC decided to connect it to its lead-in show, “Diff’rent Strokes” … even though the shows were not at all related in their creation. They had Philip Drummond purchase the radio station where his war buddy Larry works, and thus we had reason for the DF cast to visit HL. Which they did 3 times, including this episode which included Charlotte Rae as Mrs. Garrett. (As we discuss on the show, “Hello Larry” would be canceled after 1 season, giving way for “The Facts Of Life” to take over its slot and build on the audience already watching NBC that night, thanks to DF and the 8:00-9:00 show: “Real People.”
PERTINENT TO THE FACTS OF LIFE CINEMATIC UNIVERSE (FOLCU):
When Mr. Drummond offers to bring Mrs. Garrett to Portland, OR, she happily explains to Arnold that Portland is near Seattle, and “it will give me a chance to visit my sister Beverly; she’s only an hour away!” GOOD WORK, FACTS OF LIFE WRITERS!
