George Reeves was an American actor best known for starring as the title character in the popular 1950s TV series “Adventures of Superman”. Born George Keefer Brewer in 1914 in Iowa, Reeves had an itinerant upbringing before pursuing acting.

Reeves first gained notice starring in the 1939 blockbuster epic Gone with the Wind in a minor role. During the 1940s, Reeves appeared in several films including the lead role in So Proudly We Hail! (1943) but failed to reach major stardom in Hollywood.

Reeves career was revitalized when he took on the part of heroic Superman/Clark Kent in “Adventures of Superman” which premiered in 1952. Though initially considered a low prestige “kids show”, the series and Reeves’ likeable portrayal made both beloved fixtures of American life through the decade. The fantasy program defined Reeves’ public image completely in later years even while typecasting him from other roles.

By 1959, on the verge of the cancellation of “Adventures of Superman”, Reeves was found dead of a gunshot wound which was ruled a suicide though conspiracy theories persist.
