With a cheerful smile and a wink, George Reeves’ Superman won the hearts of millions of fans worldwide in the 1950s and well beyond.  Reeves’ Superman exuded friendly confidence, compassion, humor, and an air of almost paternal authority.  Everyone in the room always knew where they stood with Superman, and the authorities never questioned him. Gangsters feared him, but he was a super-gentleman to everyone else, especially Lois Lane.  The playful, romantic tension between Lois and Superman was a big part of the fun factor!

His role as the Man of Steel ran from 1951 through 1958, but Reeves’ endearing portrayal resonated with fans for decades to come.  To this day, for many, George Reeves has always been, and will always be…SUPERMAN!
