Suicide or murder?

What's your opinion?

by Anonymousreply 4705/18/2015

Does anyone still care?

Suicide. No murder motive.

by Anonymousreply 411/22/2010

Murder, murder most foul!

by Anonymousreply 511/22/2010

Doesn't matter. He'd be dead by now anyway.

by Anonymousreply 611/22/2010

He was sucked off to death.

By the sewer he lived

By the sewer he died

They said it was murder

But it was really sewer-cide

He wasn't faster than a speeding bullet.

Professional hit by Vivien Leigh from a long-held grudge from when as Stuart Tarleton, Reeves keep getting in her key light for her opening shot in GWTW.

The rapier wits of Datalounge are extra sharp tonight I see.

by Anonymousreply 1111/22/2010

Suicide, at his gf's urging.

by Anonymousreply 1211/22/2010

His hair was dyed red to play a Tarleton twin.

The movie "Hollywoodland" with Adrien Brody and Ben Affleck is based on this incident.

A false story has circulated that Reeves auditioned for the role of Samson in 'Samson and Delilah' but lost the role to Victor Mature. Reeves was never under consideration for the role of Samson. However, he was given a role as the Wounded Messenger at the recommendation of Mature, who was very loyal to his friends from his student days at the Pasadena Community Playhouse. Many of the smaller roles in Samson and Delilah (1949) were played by Mature's friends from Pasadena.

His cinema career never really took flight into the A-list. Some hope glimmered when he landed a part in the war drama 'So Proudly We Hail!' in 1943. Director Mark Sandrich promised to make him a star, but Sandrich died shortly after of heart failure.

R14 - Right, and the movie plays three or four different ways George Reeves could have died.

by Anonymousreply 1703/08/2013

How so and Lana Turner didn't date him?

From the George Reeves Google Calendar: 06-30...

by Anonymousreply 2003/09/2013

Just caught an I LOVE LUCY episode with him. He was hot. Definitely the...beefiest...Superman.

by Anonymousreply 2107/05/2014

Murder. It's time to reopen the case.

by Anonymousreply 2207/05/2014

Reeves hated Lucy, he said she was odd, weird and preverted.

by Anonymousreply 2307/05/2014

He was found buck naked and dead, laying back on his bed with his feet still on the floor. If it wasn't for the dead thing, that would've been a hot situation.

by Anonymousreply 2407/05/2014

R24 Uses the term "buck naked", I have also seen "butt naked" which one is correct.

by Anonymousreply 2507/05/2014

r25 Buck. Naked as a male deer, who are notorious nudists.

by Anonymousreply 2607/05/2014

Don't know but I loved the Hollywoodland movie that presented many alternatives.

[quote]Naked as a male deer, who are notorious nudists.

Not if I have my way R26. My "Depends Deer" product is in development now.

My other OMMs support me completely.

Back to Reeves - hot piece of ass - murdered by loony chick.

His Superman outfit didn't show one hint of bulge. It was a time that even a hint of VPL would likely not have been allowed on TV, but I'm wondering how they managed to "neuter" him in that outfit. Was it tucked and/or strapped down with double-stick tape or what?

by Anonymousreply 2907/05/2014

Lots of tape and materials to create a flat look, George was well hung.

by Anonymousreply 3007/05/2014

He looked like the type who was well hung. I would have been more than happy to help him get out of that uniform.

by Anonymousreply 3107/05/2014

Suicide.The Ben Affleck movie about it is interesting.

by Anonymousreply 3207/05/2014

How could deer wear clothes? They could never get a sweater on over their antlers.

Doesn't explain the lack of pants though. Filthy naked animals.

"Jimmy Olsen", Jack Larson, is gay. Long-term couple with the director James Bridges.

by Anonymousreply 3407/05/2014

R24 =/= Jimmy Savile, thankfully

by Anonymousreply 3507/05/2014

Jack Larson, "Jimmy Olsen" to George Reeves' "Clark Kent/ Superman"

Buck never would have BEEN a nudist!!

by Anonymousreply 3707/06/2014

George used to let Jack Larson feast on his fuckstick on special occasion.

by Anonymousreply 3807/06/2014

What difference does it make?

by Anonymousreply 3907/06/2014

Look. Ben Affleck says it was murder. I trust Ben Affleck. And if that's not enough, he even had Adrian Brody look into it for him.

by Anonymousreply 4007/06/2014

Reeves had a nice ass too. There's an episode where Clark is in sweats and they show off his tight muscle butt.

by Anonymousreply 4102/21/2015

He's in a little jar in a Pasadena cemetery

by Anonymousreply 4202/21/2015

Saw Mr. Reeves on "I Love Lucy" colorized "Lucy and Superman" (1957) on 5/17/15. He was awesome. I do say suicide. What a shame.

by Anonymousreply 4305/18/2015

Definitely suicide and lots and lots of alcohol.

by Anonymousreply 4405/18/2015

He looks like the type of guy who overindulged in everything: food, booze, dope, pussy. He must have made someone real mad.

If you're playing Superman wouldn't you hit the gym?

He never really made it in films, and if you ended up on TeeVee in the 50's it was sort of an embarrassment.

by Anonymousreply 4505/18/2015

If he'd stayed around, he probably would've ended up doing gladiator pix in the '60s (unless he was too old by then.)

by Anonymousreply 4605/18/2015

He was naked when he died. Other than the whole "he died" thing, the fact that he was in the buff is pretty hot.
