Cat. #0003513: KIRK ALYN

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Unusually early 7.75 x 8.25-inch black and white publicity image as the screen's first Superman, boldly signed and inscribed in black marker to inveterate collector Charles K. Stumpf, probably in 1969.  Minor trimming to the right-hand border; gentle creases to the upper and lower left-hand corners; a few scattered handling dings; and very gentle brushing to the writing in spots.  Alyn portrayed the Man of Steel in the serials The Adventures of Superman (1948) and Atom Man Vs. Superman (1950), and, in 1978, had a cameo in the film starring Christopher Reeve.  He also had a small role, as a gun-wielding rioter, in When Worlds Collide in 1951.
