    Atom Man vs Superman (Columbia, 1950). Six Sheet (81"X81") Kirk Alyn was the first actor to portray the "Man of Steel" on screen. He did so in the first 1948 Columbia serial called simply "Superman", and for the last time in 1950 in this serial in which he matches wits and brawn with the evil Atom Man. Large size posters for serials are very rare as these serials were filler for the larger features in a theater, and theater owners did not want to spend the additional $6 or $7 to buy the bigger sheets! This is one of but a few large posters to turn up from this film. Very Fine on Linen.
