Some information about the stunt doubles used in the first season

And then...

several weeks ago I received an e-mail from Barbara Drake who
was interested in knowing more about Dale Van Sickel.

Today I received this this followup:

Hi, Jim… I’m pleased to announce that the story on Gator-turned-stuntman Dale Van Sickel
is now live on the UF Advancement website, along with a video on YouTube
that showcases your analysis of an episode from “Adventures of Superman.”
Our videographer Jennifer Romano created the video based on the materials you sent me.

We’ve credited you in the video and at the end as well.

Feel free to share the materials on the your website.
If you embed the YouTube video, please credit Jennifer Romano/UF Advancement.

Thank you so much for sharing your insights, analysis and screenshots with our team.
Thanks to you – and Van Sickel’s daughter, Judy Buehlman, who confirmed
that her dad practiced the Superman moves on a trampoline by her
swing set – we have been able to shed light on a long-ago football hero,
a Hollywood stuntman and on the inner workings of “Adventures of Superman.”
It is very exciting!

Have a great day!

to the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America

George Reeves was National Chairman of MG in 1955
Read letter of appreciation from Esther Land of the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America.

MGA was founded by Jane Ellsworth, wife of "Superman" producer Whitney Ellsworth. George Reeves served as national chairperson in 1955 and remained close to MG in the years following.

In fact, through TAC, George Reeves maintains a connection with MG to this day. MG marked its 60th anniversary with a special newsletter that includes the history of the organization complete with the photo of George Reeves accepting a certificate from Jane Ellsworth and Mathilda Kark Spak (page 5).

I'm proud to note there is also a nice mention of The Adventures Continue.

Anyone wanting to make a donation in George's name is invited to contact me at Wouldn't George be surprised to know he continues to inspire generous donations these many years later. ~Jim
