Reeves was the first actor to bring "Clark Kent/Superman" to film with his 1951 Superman and the Mole Men.
The film was a mere 58 minutes long and was primarily used as a feeler for a TV series, which was green-lighted and launched less than a year later.
The show, which ran until 1958, made Reeves the first Superman to appear in color in 1954.
