It was both a pleasure and an honor to be part of the recent event celebrating the 100th anniversary of George Reeves’ birth.
Our good friend Jim Nolt did a superb job in putting this together, a large and certainly daunting three year challenge in coordination, planning and execution. Fans of both the Adventures of Superman and George Reeves owe Jim a huge debt of gratitude for not only making this happen but for the smooth, highly enjoyable and unforgettable moments that resulted from his vision and dedication to this project.
Although there were numerous scheduled events over the weekend including the Saturday luncheon where a host of speakers, many of them celebrities -- Laura Siegel, Jack Larson, Ruta Lee, Beverly Washburn -- regaled the attendees with a myriad of reflections on both George Reeves and the Superman series, the experience also served in some nearly elemental way in validating the texture and imaginative fabric of the kind of Baby Boomer childhoods that no longer exist. I found myself sharing stories and topics of every sort with both old and new friends and came away amazed not only that so many of us were so strongly impacted by this wonderful show and its unforgettable star but that we shared so many common bonds of childhood based on similar experiences and generational backgrounds.
This was a tremendous group of people and the camaraderie and fellowship was rich, warm and very hard to leave behind.
The word “unforgettable” is bandied about a lot these days, but this weekend was truly that, a unique and magical experience on every level.
So I just have to say it one more time, thanks Jim!!
