George Reeves... Superman

It has been called one of Hollywood's
most famous murder mysteries.

Filled with mysterious and suspicious circumstances,
the death of George Reeves is still debated worldwide.

The fact is, many of the mysterious and suspicious details...
are not mysterious and suspicious at all.

This photo of George Reeves was taken 
 just days before his death.

I have studied the George Reeves case for many years.
I recently took a brand new and objective look at the available evidence.
This is my conclusion...

George Reeves really did kill himself.

I am a fan of George Reeves.
I like the guy; I wish that I had met him.
But, I have to accept the truth.

After (or during) an angry and drunken confrontation with Leonore Lemmon,
George, for any number of reasons,
put the gun to his head...

It's time for me to move forward.

Here are some articles that I have written that I think you will enjoy.

Here's an interesting fact about
'Gone With the Wind'

As everyone knows,
this was George's first role
in a major movie.

One of the last scenes to be filmed,
was the fifth and final version of the
opening scene with George and Fred Crane!

The location of George's home.

See how close it was to the Charles Manson murders.

Here's the floor plan.

George Reeves and Toni Mannix were a wonderful Hollywood couple.
They had 'dated' for almost nine years.
Her husband, Eddie, knew and approved of their relationship.

But, as it happens so many times,
one of them was losing interest.

She was starting to show her age, and George was either
going through a mid-life crisis, or he was just growing tired of the relationship.

Here's George, Toni and his beloved dog, Sam.

George and Toni had a very ugly break up.

Leonore Lemmon had entered the scene.

One day Sam disappeared. George never saw him again.
Author and researcher Jan Alan Henderson
has found that Toni had stolen Sam.

This is Leonore Lemmon.

Think what you want...
I contend that she was a party girl and a gold digger
who has been misunderstood by history.

I do not believe she killed him.

Art Weissman was George Reeves' agent and manager. 
The photo shows him with a goatee and mostly bald.

This is Art Weissman, in a TV tabloid program.
I blame him for most of George's failures to get acting jobs.

This is Eddie Mannix, probably at MGM studios.
Some people feared him.
Other people liked him.
Everyone respected him.
