This item is an 8" X 10",black and white photo of actor George Reeves in a scene from the "Superman" television series.George Reeves played comic-book hero Superman on the 1950s TV series The Adventures of Superman. Reeves was working at the Pasadena Community Playhouse when he was cast as southern suitor Stuart Tarelton in the epic Gone With the Wind (1939, with Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh). He appeared in over three dozen movies after that, including a bit part alongside Ronald Reagan in 1940's Knute Rockne, All-American. Then Reeves hit it big on TV as Superman. The Adventures of Superman aired from 1952 to 1957 and made Reeves a familiar face across America -- so familiar, in fact, that he became seriously concerned about being type-cast as the Man of Steel. Reeves apparently killed himself in 1959, and the widespread explanation was his despondency over his career. He made his final film appearance in 1956, in the Disney feature Westward Ho The Wagons!. His other film credits include Blood and Sand (1941), Rancho Notorious (1952, starring Marlene Dietrich) and Forever Female (1953, starring William Holden).The photo has been autographed on the front by George Reeves with a fountain pen in black...............BOTH PHOTO AND AUTOGRAPH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.
