| Cringe-inducing in parts but containing entertaining clips
This recently turned up among old tapes I'd not played for many years. Typical 1980s fare, it was however extremely well edited using very good source material of early Superman serials, cartoons and of course, clips from my favorite, George Reeves in 'The Adventures of Superman'.

As another reviewer wrote, it could have been done so much better. Even back in the 1980s, comic fans were still regarded as geeks despite the Christopher Reeve movies which would lend an air of respectability to the genre, eventually.

For Superman fans, this special would be pretty much essential viewing, despite the less than entertaining host.


Release Date:
