It was especially poignant when he played the Patriotic Doctor who bristled as his patient, suffering from an injured knee, described in gushing detail her travels to Italy. His prescription was to see “a baseball game as soon as possible.” He needed his own scrip when she told him that she hated baseball. Shazam! Besides, Superman as all-American Superhero is so played out. All you need is Shazam!
