To Jerry Zezima, I just read your article on George Reeves. Another actor, Brad Johnson(1924-1981) was first asked to play the role. I've been writing a biography on Brad. His wife Adele told me his agent advised against it. He said you'll be Superman for the rest of your life. A short time later he received the role of Deputy Lofty Craig in the series ANNIE OAKLEY with Gail Davis.

Will the bio answer the unresolved questions I've had about Lofty Craig or do I have to wait until the second volume is published?
