About this title


Two writers examine the evidence left by the late Hollywood writer and MGM executive Sam Myer concerning the death of George Reeves, and they conclude that the first Superman was murdered by a man named Eddie Mannix.


George Reeves was the first television Superman. He championed "Truth, Justice, and the American Way" in the 1950s and was such a popular hero that as many as 20,000 children would show up at his personal appearances. In his private life, though, he was a sad man. Frustrated by chronic poverty, in part because his film prospects didn't pan out, he became the "kept man" of an older lover, the wife of a powerful MGM executive. When he died just two years after filming the last episode of The Adventures of Superman, the Los Angeles police called it suicide, but many questions were left unanswered. As mystery author James Crumley writes, "The characters leap off the page like the television Superman in his padded suit. When the mystery is finally revealed, George Reeves, in his tragic death, approaches heroic stature in a way he never did in life."

Store Description

Sharing is the best surprise When we share our excess with others we¿re often surprised by what we feel, what changes in us, and who we get to know in the process. Sharehouse Goods exists to create that experience for as many people as possible. Sharehouse Goods receives excess stuff from individuals or organizations (our sharers), and then we liquidate that stuff, creating jobs for people in Milwaukee. The process is simple: we receive what people are willing to share, and then we sell it online or at our storefront, creating revenue for the sharers (to keep or to donate), and jobs for people who are struggling to find employment. There¿s a lot of sharing going on, and even more surprises, at Sharehouse Goods.
