The Unauthorized but True Story of

Radio & TV's Adventures of Superman

By Michael J. Hayde

 "Yes, it’s SUPERMAN!"

In February 1940, the mighty Man of Steel first flew into our homes and imaginations courtesy of the airwaves, and in the process became a legend. Michael J. Hayde tells the true behind-the-scenes story of radio and television’s iconic Adventures of Superman, and of four men who breathed life into a pen-and-ink creation: producers Robert Maxwell and Whitney Ellsworth, and actors Bud Collyer and George Reeves.

Included are episode logs for both radio and television, complete storylines for two unproduced TV episodes, and dozens of "deleted scenes" taken right from the scripts!

From the very first "Up, up and away," follow the story of how radio and TV’s Superman carried us along on his FLIGHTS OF FANTASY.

FLIGHTS OF FANTASY: The Unauthorized but True Story of Radio & TV's Adventures of Superman will be released in May 2009 and can be reserved at
