Superman's famous introduction was voiced by Jackson Beck, who sometimes added his talents to the show as Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred on episodes that also featured Batman. The Caped Kryptonian (I can't call him a Kryptonite now, can I?) was originally played by Bud Collyer, perhaps best known now as the game show host of Beat the Clock and To Tell the Truth. Joan Alexander played Lois Lane. (Interesting tidbit: Alexander's daughter is mystery writer Joan Stanton Hitchcock.) Cub reporter Jimmy Olson was played by Jackie Kelk ("Georgie Bassett" in the Our Gang series, "Homer Brown" in The Aldrich Family.)
So, happy birthday, Joe Shuster!
And, for Truth, Justice, and The American Way, let's enjoy these early episodes!
