It's Superman! At least that's how husky Don Sinnott, 18, describes himself. He admits to police he smashed seats, yanked radiators and fire extinguishers from walls, and pulled doors from hinges at the Biltmore Theater. Suspect is shown with Officer John Buffington, in the foyer of the theater. The current theater production at the Biltmore was entitled, "Man and Superman." Photo dated: March 15, 1949.
