The 1948 and 1950 Movie Serials Starring Kirk Alyn

Digging for Kryptonite: A Superman Fan Journey

Aug 23 2022 • 1 hr 49 mins


Host Anthony Desiato and guest Tyler Patrick (KRYPTON REPORT podcast) dig into the 1948 and 1950 theatrical serials SUPERMAN and ATOM MAN VS. SUPERMAN starring Kirk Alyn and Noel Neill. Anthony and Tyler discuss how this first live-action depiction of Superman utilized the repetitive, formulaic structure of movie serials—yet still brought the character to life with integrity and laid the groundwork for successive interpretations, including the George Reeves series. Digging for Kryptonite is a Flat Squirrel Production. Key art by Gregg Schigiel and theme music by Basic Printer.
