The Deserter Review - by Colete Morlock. As every fan of George Reeves knows, he directed the last three episodes of the Adventures of Superman. It was in George's best interest to direct further and directing the film The Deserter was on his agenda, as well as Return to Earth. Colete reviews The Deserter and why it may have interested George Reeves.
