     OK, so this is just my head on George Reeves' body, but he cheated, too! He used a padded costume!
     What's interesting about the original picture, taken from the episode "The Case of the Talkative Dummy" from the first season of The Adventures of Superman, is that only a handful of suits were used for each episode of those early black and white shows, and they took quite a beating! Notice, on the right side of the Superman symbol, how frayed the material is getting.
     The suit for those first two seasons was brown, grey, and white, which displayed better in black and white. When the show went to color in the third season, Reeves wore the traditional red, blue, and yellow suit.
     I love that old show! Anyone else out there a fan?
