For any fan of George Reeves and the Superman TV Show you’ll be excited by the Kellogg’s Commercials with the Superman gang that Ira Gallen restored for the company. This includes the test shot by George Reeves at his home trying creating his own Kellogg’s commercials in an attempt to start directing commercials and later films. His life would be cut short by a mysteries gun shot in the same room he filmed in. Fans of Reeve’s will love the film short “Last Will & Testament” starring the TV man of steel in his movie days.
This powerful wartime propaganda film stars George Reeves (of Superman fame), Barbara Britton, Lionel Barrymore and Walter Brennan. Tom Smith, an American pilot, is shot down and captured by the Japanese. While imprisoned and awaiting execution, he recalls his life at home before the war and imagines what he will be bequeathing to those he leaves behind. At the conclusion, the film turns out to be an appeal to theater audiences on behalf of the National War Fund, serving as an excellent example of the scripted and dramatized form of the cinematic fundraiser. The Motion Picture Industry produced the film for the National War Fund and the nation's United Community Campaigns. A great addition is the “Superboy” screen tests shot by the shows producer in 1959.
