Another Halloween ad.  Notice she's not Supergirl, but Superman's girlfriend...whom he dresses up to look like himself??  From October 1955.

I mentioned that I would post the article from the Macy's Day parade (I posted the image early on in this thread).  From November 19, 1940.


And about the parade from the 22nd.

Another tv ad.  I like how they put the plot summary in the ad.  Each is different, but I'll try to only post the different forms of the tv ads. From September 1955.

George Reeves' accident before his death.  I think this was the time his brake fluid "disappeared".  April 4, 1959.

I thought this was interesting.  An article about George Reeves' success (and I didn't find too many Reeves articles) from the month before he died.  

I also have a series of a dozen articles surrounding his death and the investigation.  Should I post them?
