    It is doubtful who is watching whom aloft on the gabled roof, and also who is standing in the airy height, or who is in readiness for the action: whether it is the audience, the camerawoman or the superhero himself. It is a moment of suspense before obeying the signal. The tremendous thing is all behind it.
