George Reeves Life Cast (1955*)

1955georgereeveslifecast

Often mistaken for a “death mask”, this is a copy of a “life cast” of actor George Reeves originally taken in 1955 for an episode of the television series The Adventures of Superman.  In the episode, entitled “Superman Week”, Superman is being honored with a bust by a renowned sculptor.  The sculptor is replaced by a known felon who tries to kill Superman with Kryptonite.

*Although this is a multigenerational copy produced years later, for category purposes I’m listing the year as 1955 which was the year of the original casting.
