In the first of a series of short pieces about some of the more important and entertaining films that are in the public domain, I take a look at the 17 pioneering Superman shorts made in the 1940s.
Superman is the world's best-known superhero – the star of countless comic books, TV series, films, and radio shows since his first appearance in Action Comics in 1938. His first on-screen adventures are not so familiar today, but had a tremendous impact not only on the Superman mythos but also on the history of animation.
