I bet if you watched TV back in the 1950's, you saw this fellow. His name is Jack Larson and I am sorry to say that he passed away yesterday at the age of 87. Have you figured out what character he played ?
He played Jimmy Olsen, the newspaper reporter that was friends with Clark Kent, another reporter who led a secret life as Superman. Now do you remember him?
The show ran on TV from 1952 through 1958:
This last picture is of the original cast of the Superman show. From left to right:
Perry White - - - played by John Hamilton
Superman - - - played by George Reeves
Unidentified mother and daughter
Lois Lane - - - played first by Noel Neill and then by Phillis Coates
Jimmy Olsen - - - played by Jack Larson.
This is one of those shows that showed that good always wins out over evil, unlike a lot of the stuff on TV these days. Now tell me, how many of you remember that old show or am I the only one in blogger land old enough to remember it? Now, don't go flying all around without the aid of an airplane nor bend steel with your bare hands, but have a great day, you hear?
