The good guys decide to give the film to Betty, their innocent, inept clerk.

Indexer Notes

One of the early stories in this series where Reggie and Veronica are members of C.R.U.S.H.; in later stories they would become part of P.O.P. and fight new villains.

Stores on the street include "Vic's Trading Post," referring to colorist Victor Gorelick, and "Dexter Tailor," a reference to Little Archie artist Dexter Taylor.
