George Reeves Personal Appearance
The Hartford Courant, January 18 - 27, 1957
30,000+ Autographed photos distributed
Images provided by Bill Dillane and Lou Koza
In Gary Grossman's book, Superman: Serial to Cereal, on page 56 is an illustration of George in the Superman costume. Why the image includes George with devilish horns and a tail is a mystery See bottom of page). The letterhead of this illustration refers to the Connecticut Sportsman and Boat Show Inc.event.
What Bill Dillane has uncovered here for the very first time since this event is the amazing newspaper coverage of George's appearance. What a thrill this must have been for these youngsters of the time.
