Program Notes

Few fictional characters have been as prolific in mainstream entertainment as the Man of Steel. From the original comic stories in the 1930s to the Clayton Collyer radio show and Paramount’s animated shorts in the '40s, the Kirk Alyn television shows of the '50s, the musical adaptation for theatre and George Reeves series of the '60s, the feature films of the '70s and '80s, the television spin-offs of the '90s and '00s, and finally, a resurrection to the big screen in 2006, the legend of Superman has thrived for more than 60 years. Upon the first major motion picture production in the mid-'70s, director Richard Donner and his producers determined that the character would be treated with respect while, after all his adventures, providing him with a massive scale on which to generate his wonder. Their success in that production yielded four Oscar nominations (with one win) and a permanent “most favored Superman” status for actor Christopher Reeve.
