James Lileks needs your HELP!

From his latest Bleat:

I need this for the Backfence. Cast superhero/comic book movies using old-school movie heroes a la Bogart, John Wayne, etc. You can do it! fence@startribune.com

Yes, now that Jim is really busy reading books about how western civilization is doomed and our culture is a wreck due to the perilous influence of moral relativism, he can't be bothered to actually write the columns for which he gets paid anymore. So help him out! He needs to know what stars of the obviously preferable yesteryear could be cast as the superheroes of today, sparing him the agony of having to see some talentless prettyboy unfit to shine the Duke's show boots (and probably a liberal pantywaist Hollywood hippie at that) play the Flash.

Some suggesions I thought of:

- Franklin Pangborn as Captain America.
- Peter Lorre as the Spirit.
- Leni Riefenstahl as Wonder Woman.
- Sydney Greenstreet as Doll Man.
- Percy Kilbride as the Spectre.

Keep 'em comin'! Jim needs you to help pay for his next trip to the Apple store!
