A year ago this month, Tarzana, California garnered some attention when the Adventures of Superman plaque was dedicated.
The community of Tarzana is named for Edgar Rice Burroughs's most famous character, Tarzan the ape man. Burroughs used to own a ranch in the community.

The plaque site was chosen as it was only location shoot in which all principal cast members appeared. It was for "The Man Who Could Read Minds" episode of 1953.
There is one other public place in Tarzana in which Adventures of Superman star George Reeves is referenced.
It is at the El Paso Barbeque Co. restaurant at 18938 Ventura Blvd. Inside the restaurant's foyer, there is a framed Hopalong Cassidy move poster with George Reeves receives a billing (photo below).
So, besides the Adventures of Superman plaque that pictures and names Reeves, there is a movie poster hanging in a restaurant with his name prominently featured.
I mentioned all this tonight to Teddy, the owner of the El Paso Barbeque Co. restaurant, and showed him pictures of the plaque dedication.
By the way, if you should stop in to see the poster, the El Paso Barbeque Co. has excellent meals!
