George Reeves, the television Superman of the fifties, was found dead with a
gunshot to the head in 1959. The death was ruled a suicide, though others suspect
murder. (He'd been having an affair with the wife of MGM exec Eddie Mannix.)
Thirty-six years later, Christopher Reeve, who played Superman in four movies
between 1978 and 1987, was paralyzed by a riding accident. He died two years
ago of a heart attack related to his injury.
Several other actors involved in the Superman series of movies have had bad
luck. Margot Kidder suffered a temporary mental breakdown in 1996, a result of
her bipolar disorder. Richard Pryor developed multiple sclerosis, Marlon Brando's
son was charged with murder and his daughter committed suicide

Dean CAin did play a grown up superman. Primary colored spandex and everything. Does anyone know what happened to Jimmy Olson, or the guy who looks just like J. Jonah Jameson?

This starts out talking about 'the superman curse' and goes into the
alleged curses of other movies as well. I didn't know about the
Superman curse, but apparently Hollywood actors do and that's
why they are all 'busy' when any talk of working on a Superman
movie/series comes up.
Of course ... Dean Cain seems to have slipped by the curse - but
perhaps because he didn't play a grown up superman?
