Color Footage - Superman Day: World's Fair 1939

Color footage from Superman Day at the World's Fair 1939

Recently color footage has shown up on YouTube from the 1939 New York World's Fair Superman Day.

The footage only has a few moments of Ray Middleton (or if our friend Nostalgia King is correct, some other actor) in the costume, but never the less, the suit looks great in all it's blue and red glory.

There is a bunch of color footage from the fair up on YouTube as well, so if you like the Superman film,, take a look at some more of one of the great fairs of all time.


  1. Superman Day was during the New York World's Fair observation of 1940.

  3. Superman Day is well documented to have been held on July 3rd, 1940--NOT July 4th and NOT 1939.
