Superman has a famously thin disguise when he is Clark Kent: a business suit and glasses. In the first few seasons of  Adventures Of Superman , George Reeves had great eyesight, so he wore only frames. As he aged, he added corrective lenses. By watching the show, you can tell when his eyesight got worse by looking for the reflection of the stage light off the lenses.

Acting can be uncomfortable, as actors have to be vulnerable emotionally. However, in George Reeves’ case, it was a literal discomfort. His costume was ironically his kryptonite- it gave him rashes if he spent too much time with a cape on. Sometimes the rash was so severe, he had to undress and take a break, to allow for the rash to subside. One fan theory blames not the suit itself for the irritation, but the latex padding that was used to make him look more muscular.

One of the amazing things about Superman is that he uses the power of the Earth’s yellow sun to fly. However, George Reeves probably didn’t gain much from the sun beside vitamin D and maybe a sunburn. So to make Reeves fly, the crew of  Adventures used wires. However, in the midst of a flight scene, one of the wires snapped, and Reeves fell hard to the ground and was injured. Understandably, he vetoed any further wire work, instead opting to use a springboard to initiate the flying scenes.

In various cartoon stories that feature Superman, his age is cited as somewhere between 29 and 35 years. George Reeves convincingly played the hero starting when he was 38 years old, making him the oldest person to have played a live action version of Superman. By the end of the series, Reeves was 44 years old. Having a full head of black hair is impressive at 44, not to mention doing one’s own stunts while wearing a cape and tights.

On a hilarious episode of  I Love Lucy , George Reeves guest stars as Superman. To entertain kids at a birthday party, Lucy tries to dress up as the (wo)man of steel, complete with ‘S’ on her chest. When she tries to jump in through the window via the building ledge, she gets stuck under a broken pipe. The real Superman ends up saving Lucy from the building ledge, but even so, Superman declares Ricky the real hero for being married to Lucy for fifteen years.

Adventures Of Superman was a very low budget show, with a mere $15,000 per episode budget. They, in fact, did not have enough money to finish making the original episodes. In 1951, the 26 episodes of the first season had already been shot, but the studio halted production because their pockets were empty. Kellogg’s, the cereal company, had previously sponsored a Superman radio program, and they were called to sponsor the television show. The company swooped in and saved the day, and the show aired in 1952.
