ReviewSource Fantastic Movie Musings and Ramblings
Review [1948] I don't mind the use of animation for the flying sequences; though it may seem jarring at first, it does add action and interesting movement to those sequences. I like the first several episodes the best, as they deal with the origins of Superman and his joining the reporting team of the Daily Planet. I also like the fact that using a stock group of well-known characters gives us a greater variety of performances among the secondary characters than is usually found in serials...However, there are certain disappointments; the Spider Lady is as dull a serial villain as any I've known (despite her slinky black dress); Carol Forman doesn't appear to be having any fun with the role, and came across as if she'd much rather be home painting her toenails.

ReviewSource Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Review [1948] One of the best of the cliffhanger serials (if not, indeed, the best); it shows all 15-chapters that used to play before the double-features on Saturday matinees back in the day. It's action-packed as codirected by Spencer Gordon Bennet and Thomas Carr and scripted from a team of writers who based it on the Superman radio shows (which were based on the Action comic book series). Former B-film star Kirk Alyn is an engaging and athletic Superman; he came before George Reeves and Christopher Reeve to set the standard for the role...A fun serial film that gives one a chance to look back at a more innocent time, where there was a gee-whiz innocence to that age that might seem refreshing to some.
