Description by OLDIES.com:
How would George like to be remembered? Probably not as Superman; although had he lived, he may have warmed up to it as he grew older, but most likely not.
This book is about life and art, not death, suspicion, and scandal. Behind the Crimson Cape focuses on the film career Reeves had prior to, during, and unfortunately not after, Superman - a career which formed every nuance and characteristic of his portrayal of Krypton's mighty Man of Steel.
Customers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 4 ratings.
This book took five years to complete and I marvel at the detail. The average person would never know that Reeves had done so much film work prior to becoming a superhero on television. The authors take us through his films by year. In addition to stills from the movies, a synopsis is written for each, which includes interesting facts about the cast members. This book would make an excellent addition to a George Reeves collection!
