August 17, 2014: Fans and Celebrities Turn Out for Superman Plaque DedicationPrint

Plaque Dedication To celebrate the 100th birthday of George Reeves (the star of the TV series "Adventures of Superman"), as well as the 100th birthdays of both of Superman's co-creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster this year, which is also Superman's 76th anniversary, a plaque was dedicated on Saturday, August 16 at 5400 Wilbur Ave, Tarzana, California.

    "It's wonderful, and astonishing, all these years later," said movie producer Jack Larson, 86, of Brentwood, who played cub reporter Jimmy Olsen, standing over the granite plaque marking a site where he and all five of the show's main characters had shared an action-packed location shoot 61 years earlier.

    "I was a big reader of the comic book Superman, which I had the first editions for 10 cents," he said of the superhero comics now worth millions, "which my mother threw away."

    An estimated 60 celebrities and fans had come from around the world to the San Fernando Valley to pay tribute to one of Hollywood's earliest and most successful TV series from 1952-58.

Plaque Dedication Plaque Dedication Plaque Dedication

    The morning dedication - including Larson; Laura Siegel Larson, daughter of Superman's co-creator; actress Stephanie Shayne Parkin, daughter of actor Robert Shayne; actress Beverly Washburn of the series, and Jacqueline Hamilton, granddaughter of actor John Hamilton - was attended by dozens of fans wearing blue, crimson and gold Superman T-shirts.

    The event was followed by lunch at the Beverly Garland Hotel with a possible tour today of Reeve's boyhood and adult haunts, including the Benedict Canyon home where in 1959 he'd committed suicide.

This location for the plaque was selected as it was used during a film shoot for the Adventures of Superman episode "The Man Who Could Read Minds" in 1953.
