Your truly has been a Superman fan since the 1950s. Back then I watched the Adventures of Superman with George Reeves on Channel 11. There was John Hamilton as Perry White, Noell Neill and Phyllis Coates as Lois Lane, and Jack Hamilton as Jimmy Olson. There is a Yahoo Group devoted to George Reeves at http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/GeorgeReeves/. Later on in the era of VCRs I taped many episodes. In the late 1970s there were the 4 Superman movies with the late Christopher Reeve staring as the Man of Steel. Today we went to see the new movie Superman Returns with Brandon Routh. We enjoyed it but my favorite is still the George Reeves TV version. I am sure that in the years to come there will be more Superman movies with Brandon Routh.
