• George Reeves, the actor who played Superman in the 1 9505 was wary about his young fans after a boy pulled a pistol on him to test Superman's invulnerability. Reeves convinced the boy to give him the gun by telling him that someone else could be hurt when the bullets bounced off.

      >”how’d he get a gun” It’s the 50s, you got your guns, next to the bullets, which is next to the bread and milk, and it all cost $0.86 too

      It was the 50s. Kids had guns all the time, especially around my parts. Granddad made a good amount of money around that time (he was 10-ish) hunting frogs with his .22, and selling them back to the local diner for 20 cents a pair.

      This is one thing i like about old TV shows. The actors were always.portraying their character. Reeves here. He didn't go "Kid. Its fantasy. Ill get hurt!" No. He kept his cool and told the kid a little white lie. No one is hurt, and the kid never lost his hero.
