Prior to becoming superman
George Reeves tried his hand at the
story of the Knights Of The Round Table.
This serial was broadcast in Australia on Channel O when it was starting out in the early sixties. The story is quite traditional: Galahad wants to follow in the shoes of his father Lancelot but loses Excalibur when he nods off while guarding the treasured sword. Galahad is refused entry to the exclusive privileges of the round table until he finds Excalibur and returns it to King Arthur. Merlin along with the invading Ulrik and The Black Knight attempt to prevent Galahad’s success. Reeves went on to become Superman which typecast him for the rest of his short life. He committed suicide in 1959. Mystery still surrounds his death.
