George Reeves Facts
Although his Superman costume was padded, Reeves himself was actually very athletic and did most of his own stunts for his role in the "Adventures of Superman" (1952). Episodes routinely required him to jump from significant heights to simulate Superman landing in frame or hitting a springboard with enough force to propel him out of frame. A frequent stunt required Reeves to grab a bar (outside of camera range) and swing in through a window, clearing his own height (over six foot) and landing on his feet. Reeves had mastered this gymnastic move so well that he could perform the stunt and immediately deliver his dialog without the need to cut to another angle.

Another false story has Reeves appearing as a bespectacled TV news reporter in The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). In reality, the actor playing the role bears no resemblance to Reeves, and in a 1995 interview with Reeves biographer Jim Beaver, director Robert Wise stated unequivocally that it is not Reeves in the role. It appears that someone jumped to conclusions based on the image of a reporter wearing glasses and thus resembling roughly the image of Superman alter-ego Clark Kent. Reeves had nothing to do with the film in any capacity.

In Blood and Sand (1941) as Captain Pierre Lauren, Reeves shares the screen with Rita Hayworth in her first Technicolor scene.
