ADVENTURES of SUPERMAN Starring George Reeves. Here's a great tribute to not only Superman, but actor George Reeves. Did Reeves actually commit suicide or was it murder? OR was it an accident as I believe. Evidenced by the fact that Reeves often, as a gag at parties, pretended to shoot himself with a pistol loaded with blanks. Using the same pistol he often played around with, Reeves, drunk and heavily sedated with pain killers, neatly sat by his bed preparing for bed. Completely inebriated, he forgot that there was still another bullet in the gun. He held it away from his head, as he did in the gag routine and pulled the trigger. No powder burns. Why? The simplest answer is often the right one. Just felt lousy, pretended to shoot himself with the Luger pistol kept handily in his dresser, inches from him. Bullet went off, he died. No one else has concluded this, even though it's almost a certainty. What do you think about the death of the "real" and original TV Superman, George Reeves?
