    In watching this series once again on DVD, I'm reminded at just how brilliant this first season was. Each episode was a little mini-movie shot in film noir. This was a television series for adults who liked heroic adventure. The Superman during the Whitney Ellsworth years, and more specifically those final seasons in color, were for kids 5-10. Superman, as well as the whole comic book industry, was under investigation for exploiting violence which is why Superman season one producer Robert Maxwell was replaced.



    This episode showed a very serious no-nonsense Clark Kent and a stoic Superman and that kudos goes directly to George Reeves for doing, in my estimation, the only valid portrayal of Clark Kent that could be done. How can you be a bumbling, naive clod and still be an ace reporter at the numbere one newspaper in the number one city? the answer is you can't and Reeves knew that. Kent was a tough, smart reporter who only relied on Superman when the situation became desperate. But it was always Kent who solved the crime. He was the truthsayer of the show.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Clark Kent gets the fingerprints from the police photolab, the photolab technician tells Clark that he is just running off a copy of a picture of a full-hand print that was found in the murdered man's cabin. Then the technician goes into the dark room, and while he's in there, Clark Kent changes into Superman and flies off for Germany. Then the scene switches back to the technician just coming out of the dark room with the picture of the hand print in his hands.

      But then, when Superman arrives in Germany and changes back into Clark Kent, Clark hands over the stack of pictures containing the fingerprints to Redding, and right on top of the stack of pictures is the full-hand print that the technician had in his hands only a few minutes ago. But Superman didn't go back for the picture, so how did Clark/Superman have the picture in Germany?

    • This episode is most interesting as this was only six years after Hitler's defeat. The Germans were the villains of this episode
