SupermanTV.net Forum / Superman / 1950's Superman George Reeves / Hollywoodland George Reeves Investigation


Posted:  24 Aug 2006 18:34   Last Edited By: Tim
Ben Burgraff shared some thoughts with me about the new Hollywoodland movie featuring the investigation of George Reeves death. I had some questions about it as soon as I saw the trailer. Like was Ben Affleck actually wearing a Superman costume?

Here's what Ben had to say about the movie

"You can see a few of the problems, just watching the trailer...Noel Neill, apparently, did not allow permission to use her name, so an actress portraying Phyllis Coates is the film's only 'Lois Lane'; it looks like DC and Warner refused to grant permission to use the 'S', either (his 'in-costume' clips don't show the insignia);  the scene where Reeves accuses Toni Mannix of ruining his career, and forcing him to remain in the "Red and Blue" costume is pure fabrication (Reeves knew that the role itself was stereotyping him, without any outside help); the papparazzi 'photo' of Reeves, falling down drunk and being dragged to the Police station, is pure hogwash, as well (Reeves drank, heavily, but was never abusive or destructive, in public; he worried far too much about kids' image of 'Superman' to allow THAT to happen); and the 'muscle shirt' he wore beneath his B&W costume was nowhere NEAR as Herculeanly padded and contoured as the trailer shows (it cut off just below his chest...you can see the line, in some B&W stills; and was padded in the shoulders, to offset Reeves' sloped shoulders). By the time of the color episodes, his uniform was all foam rubber, with shoulder pads 'built-in', so he didn't need the padded T-shirt any longer..."

It's a new movie starring Ben Affleck as 1950's TV Superman George Reeves. It's like a biography focusing mainly on Reeves death.

but from the way that cut it out, it sounds more like a parody than biography
