    1. I am on a Superman kick these days. It began when I came across The Adventures of Superman series at the library and loved it. I grew up with a different sort of Superman, but I absolutely loved this show. I dutifully saw all the extra features and commentaries, many from Jack Larson. While still waiting for seasons 5 and 6, I moved on to the movies and other Superman shows-even documentaries. Did you notice Jack Larson makes a cameo in Superman Returns!? Did you see the Donner cut of Superman I [...]

    2. One of the most tantalizing unsolved Hollywood mysteries. Did George Reeves, TV's Superman, kill himself on June 16, 1959 or was he murdered? This book provides all the known clues, and introduces the reader to a fascinating cast of characters. Leonore Lemmon, Reeves' recent fiancee. Toni Mannix, wife of MGM exec Eddie Mannix, and Reeves' former paramour. Helen Bessolo, Reeves' grieving mother who tried to convince people her son was murdered. George Reeves himself, television's beloved Superman [...]

    3. Did George Reeves, the star of television's popular SUPERMAN series really commit suicide back in 1959, or was he, in fact, murdered?That's the question authors Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger pose in this fascinating read that takes a look at Hollywood's "dark side".In the end, the writers make a very strong argument in favor of homicide.So, who killed Superman?Best guess is a professional hitman, hired by powerful MGM studio executive (and fixer) Eddie Mannix whose wife had been having an a [...]

    4. One of the saddest most interesting stories I've ever read. Some people just have all the luck, and George Reeves WASN'T one of them (poor guy). It was just one unhappiness after another for him. A story that gets into your head.

    5. A very detailed examination of the death of TV actor GEORGE REEVES (1914-59), who played the Clark Kent/Superman character on the TV series, "ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN" in the 1950s. I was most impressed by the impartiality of the authors and their thorough dedication to presenting the facts, sans emotion.

    6. I was totally intrigued by this book and want to read it again. Watched Hollywoodland last night after I finished.
