With Superman set to flex his pecs on the big screen this year, here’s a timely look at a 1950s incarnation.
For older fans, George Reeves is still the iconic Superman. All 26 episodes of season 1 are here and generally considered to be the best. Reeves plays Supe and Clark Kent without any of that otherwordly nonsense that crept into later films. There’s enough derring-do in the imaginative scripts to overcome any occasional clunkiness and the package also gives you a documentary, commentaries and a short earlier Reeves film.
