George Reeves’ portrayal of Superman/Clark Kent turned the traditional dynamic on its ear. Reeves had a prolific if undistinguished big screen career in the '30s and '40s, having appeared as one of the Tarleton twins in Gone With The Wind, and then in dozens of less prestigious productions. The ruggedly handsome Reeves, with his broad smile and lantern jaw, turned Clark Kent, not his caped alter ego, into the central figure of The Adventures of Superman's seven season run on TV. Reeves' Clark was charming, confident, and (occasionally) rather two-fisted and willing to wade into danger in his business suit and glasses.
Our museum features many screen used props and costume pieces, including a George Reeves brown and grey costume, A colored suit, the mole men's skull caps from superman and the mole men, and the mask from the Man in the Iron Mask episode. Take a tour back in time and visit us today!
