We report measurements of the temperature difference across a Mylar strip as a function of the film thickness for various amounts of heat applied to one end of the strip. The results reveal a dramatic jump in the thermal conductance at superflow onset. For thicker films the observed temperature difference decreases to zero in a non-trivial manner.
