Last month, the Tarzana area of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County saw the dedication of a plaque commemorating the 100th birthdays of Superman creators Jerome Siegel & Joe Shuster and Adventures of Superman star George Reeves.

The location was selected as it was the only location shoot of the Adventures of Superman television show to feature all cast members. It was in 1953 that the location shoot took place for "The Man Who Could Read Minds" episode.

The plaque was dedicated by Jack Larson (Jimmy Olsen), Laura Siegel Larson (daughter of Jerome Siegel), actress Stephanie Shayne Parkin (daughter of Bob "Inspector Henderson" Shayne), actress Beverly Washburn (who appeared in Superman and the Mole Men) and Jacqueline Hamilton (granddaughter of John "Perry White" Hamilton).

Many in attendance at the plaque dedication wore George Reeves-style Superman shirts. If you would like a t-shirt in the George Reeves style, here's the information:
