Superman with George Reeves

I recently watched a couple of episodes of the George Reeves "Superman". It's still as cheesy as I remember and it got me to thinking, why doesn't anyone do a superhero movie the way they used to do these shows. Superheroes used to be treated as really campy stuff.

Take for instance "Batman Begins". Everyone loved it because of how faithful it was to the latter day "Batman" comic books. I found it excruciatingly dull. Where are the big telephones? Where's King Tut?

Anyway, the Reeves "Superman" is quite stupid and quite entertaining in its stupidity.
