Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #247!

Theme Week! Let's look at three weekly posters that accompanied the release of a cool old movie serial back in the day - in this case the first ever live-action cinematic appearance of the Man of Steel!

Superman  (Columbia Pictures, 1948)

Everybody seems to complain about this serial because whenever star Kirk Alyn takes off flying as Superman he turns into an animated cartoon. I think it's cool. But then I love Bela Lugosi's animated transformation into a bat in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.

It's a fun old serial and I love these posters.

Until next post - you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
