I just finished reading Les Daniel's book, "Superman: The Complete History". And before that, I read all the DC Archive Editions devoted to reprintng Superman's earliest adventures (about 2000 pages of Superman reprints from his earliest appearance in Action Comics #1 in 1938, through about 1943 in both Action Comics and his own title, Superman, which launched in 1939).

I'm also a big fan of Barry Levinson's TV series, Homicide.

So, imagine my delight when I discovered that Jerry Seinfeld, who is himself an avowed Superman fan, is co-starring with the Man of Steel in a series of web-based commercials for American Express, directed by Barry Levinson! The first one, with a running time of about 5 minutes, is online now. It's great. Check it out at: http://www.jerry.digisle.tv/html/teasers.html

Arg. Third time's a charm. Let's see. The main, completed show is here: http://www.jerry.digisle.tv/html/uniform.html

Click on the various film canisters ("Hindsight", "Behind the Scenes" and "TV Teasers") to see the other material.

I really need to learn to check my URLs before posting!

I just noticed that you can click on some other things in the room too. Definitely, click on the remote control to watch the excellent Today Show interview with Seinfeld and Superman. There's a photo album that's kind of fun too, if you click on the right thing. If you need hints, this page: http://www.jerry.digisle.tv/room.html provides them as you roll over things that are clickable.

Enjoy!
