Biography | show moreshow less
Kirk Alyn (1910-1999) was the first actor to portray the Man of Steel on film. He played the character Superman in the 15 episode serial film Superman (1948) and its sequel Atom Man vs. Superman (1950). Alyn enjoyed a loyal fan following for his two Superman appearances, reflecting that fact in the title of his 1974 autobiography, A Job for Superman. The actor had first appeared as a chorus boy in such major Broadway musicals of the 1930s as Girl Crazy, Of Thee I Sing and Hellzapoppin. Moving to Hollywood in 1942, he was briefly seen in Columbia's My Sister Eileen (1942) and You Were Never Lovelier (1943).
