I'm sending this letter on Friday, October 13. Did you ever notice that whenever a calender was shown in the Maxwell episodes that was the date?
Judy and John Bogle
As a young boy I often donned my red bathrobe around my shoulders and raced through my house as Superman. One time, as I pretended to change from Clark Kent to Superman, I tripped on a door frame, and my fake glasses caused a large gash in my forehead. It I look hard enough I can still find the very small scar thirty years later! I quickly learned that while I might be able to imitate my hero, I was a long way from possessing "powers and abilities far beyond those of mortel men!"
There is no question that for so many of us, George Reeves will always be the one and only Superman. Thanks again for your efforts. Or as George said in the "Superman Week" episode, "Thanks Pal!"
Christopher L. Irving
Thanks for your efforts in keeping the memories of this wonderful program alive. I will never tire of rewatching the episodes and being transformed for a few magic moments to a youngster in front of the old Motorola ensconced in a walnut cabinet watching the Man of Steel, Lois, Jimmy, Mr. White, and Insp. Henderson.
Here is my contribution for the Variety ad. It's been 50 years -- gee, I don't feel that old as I watch those reruns. George keeps the kid in all of us going! Hope we can make the national edition.
The Adventures of Superman never
Jan and Zoe Rekas
Of all the television series and actors who played Superman, the Adventures of Superman and George Reeves will continue to live on to eternity. George Reeves was the best Superman ever. On the 50th anniversary of the start of its production, we never stop enjoying the wonderful series -- the original and always the best.
This is a well-deserved tribute for one of America's great entertainment icons and the gifted actor(s) who brought a comic book to life.
Please accept my donation for theh proposed full-page Variety ad to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the frist season of Superman. If I were allowed to take only one television series to a desert island, this would be the one.
Thanks for allowing me to be a small part of a great effort to pay tribute to such a magnificent production for the early days of television. And thanks for "keeping it alive" with your amazing web site.
Here is our donation for the Variety tribute. I really do think it's a super idea to commemorate the show and honor the cast while some of these wonderful folks are still with us. I for one can never thank them enough for creating something so endearing and important. Without their hard work and effort there would be no Adventures of Superman. A big George smile and best wishes to you, Jim! Good luck with the tribute, and God bless.
Not too many years ago I thought I must be the only one who still had a fond remembrance and appreciation of the series. Then I made the serendipitous decision in 1988 to stop at a local bookstore. While chatting with the manager, he mentioned that there was another Omahan -- Don Rhoden -- who not only enjoyed the series but also was publishing a fanzine! Wow, I wasn't alone! Flash forward 15 printed issues and coming up on 50 electronic issues, and thanks to you, Jim, The Adventures Continue is sill in business. Thanks for all you do. Many people appreciate it!
all his incarnations, has always been special to me (I even
proposed to my wife dressed in the ol' red, yellow and blue!). I
want to thank you for finding a way to bring us fans together to
commemorate this event. It's one small way that we can remember
and honor the memories of what Superman and the Adventures Of
Superman has meant to us all.
To the cast and crew who have created perhaps the most enjoyable, entertaining, interesting, and re-watchable television series I've come to know in my life. Well done and long live the Adventures of Superman.
Watching Superman made me feel secure as a child. During the times of being told to "duck and cover" in the event an atomic bomb was dropped and during turmoil at home, I felt that Superman would make everything turn out all for the best.
Thanks for everything.
This check is long overdue and smaller than I would like. The 50th Anniversary Tribute is a great way to commemorate the series we all remember and love. As we've discussed in previous correspondence, it was the entire ensemble of the perfect cast and a dedicated crew that made the Adventures of Superman come alive and stay alive for us even today. Not only was George the ideal Clark and Superman, but no one could play Lois, Jimmy, Perry, and Bill Henderson like Noel Neill, Jack Larson, John Hamilton, and Robert Shayne. Many thanks for your dedication and hard work in carrying the flame of the Adventures of Superman into the 21st Century!
As I approach my 50th, on July 29th, my thoughts turn to the happier moments that I had as a kid. To this day, when I hear the theme from the Adventures of Superman, I get a little shiver of a thrill. Thank you for taking the time to recognize something that seems small, but was in fact, a big part of many of our lives... I thank you as well, for allowing me to be a part of it. It's a wonderful birthday present for me!
Hi Jim Nolt,
I am a Superman fan from Brazil. I never really watched the Adventures of Superman in television, because I am twenty-six years old, but I already had watched some episodes in video and I know how important this series as for Superman popularity and for the comics in the fifties. I am glad to help you to make this gift for the series in its 50th anniversary. Congratulations Adventures of Superman and George Reeves, the man who made the hero real.
I thought this would put you over the top but I guess someone beat me too it. Congratulations!! Loved the photos from Superman Week. Sure would have loved to be there with you. I will be in LA next month. I will be riding Superman The Escape at Magic Mountain and will dedicate that experience to George.
I hope all is well. Enclosed is a check for TAC #16 and a donation for the ad. Talk about nearly missing the dealine!! I've been off of my home computer for most of the summer and missed all the GR events. Many thanks in advance for your "heroic" efforts.
Here is my contribution to the Variety ad. I just had to help with this wonderful project.
I hope better late than never! Looking forward to seeing the ad, and (of course) let me know if you want/need any help with it!
In recognition of one of my very favorite television series of all time. I am privileged to be part of this milestone in television history. And this is in memoriam to those who lost their lives and to the survivors and their families on September 11, 2001.
