Coinciding with Warner Bros' release of SUPERMAN RETURNS, ReelTime has made SUPERMAN, THE LOST EPISODES available for viewing at no cost. Plus, every time the series is watched, ReelTime will make a donation to the Christopher Reeve Foundation (CRF).
This collection of wartime-era SUPERMAN classic cartoons, produced by Famous Studios, never made it to the television screen in the 1940s. They were the first, most lavishly produced, as well as the most faithful to the printed comics. There is also a bonus MIGHTY MOUSE cartoon at the end.
The ReelTimeTV site has a new technology that allows for a true television experience. The product is streamed, with no download time and appears in full screen and DVD quality.
"This is a way for people to really pay tribute to Christopher Reeve and his legacy," said Maggie Goldberg vp of public relations for the Christopher Reeve Foundation.
Beverly Zaslow, ReelTime's vp of business development, said, "We are pleased to make these historically significant shows available for viewers around the world to enjoy, and are happy that at the same time we can help support the Christopher Reeve Foundation's important work in finding treatments and cures for paralysis."
The Christopher and Dana Reeve Paralysis Resource Center (www.christopherreeve.org) provides a comprehensive, national source of information for people living with spinal cord injury, paralysis and all mobility related disabilities.
