The Adventures Continue
with George Reeves

November, 2003

Al Eben, Big Ed Bullock in "Crime Wave" passed away this past July. Born in Philadelphia on March 11, 1915, Eben appeared in a number of films and television shows beginning in the 1940. In addition to Superman, Eben appeared in Petticoat Junction and the Beverly Hillbillies. He last appeared in a 199 episode of Everybody Loves Raymond as a lodge member in "Frank's Tribute." Eben was 88.

Jim Beaver is a writer, actor, and George Reeves fan. I'm sure many of you saw him on a couple of the entertainment news magazines when they presented segments on George Reeves' death. You may also have seen him on Unsolved Mysteries in 1995. Jim has appeared in several films and television shows including the recent The Life of David Gale and Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman in an episode called "I'm Looking Through You," one reminiscent of "The Phantom Ring" from 1955. Jim was thrilled two years ago when he became a father for the first time. He sent me pictures and bragged about his wonderful daughter. Movie and television roles were becoming more frequent. But about two weeks ago, Jim wrote to tell me that his wife Cecily is being treated for a type of non-small-cell lung cancer known as adenoma. It has spread to her sternum, lower spine, and hip bones. Cecily, by the way, is the daughter of Get Smart star, Don Adams. She is a fighter, and she has the determination to defeat her disease. Still, both she and Jim can use words of encouragement. Jim's e-mail address is Please don't bombard him with long messages, but if you'd like to send brief words of encouragement, please do.

We were joined by Lou Koza, John Sheridan, George McGaffin, Steve Randisi, and Joe Desano. You can see photos from that event on the Yahoo Group site.
