    An often talked about mistake in the show is that Superman would duck when a thug would throw his empty gun at Superman. While this mistake is often attributed to George Reeves not wanting to be hit by a prop gun, it was actually George's stunt double ( Dale Van Sickle ) who ducked. And this mistake actually only happened once, in The Mind Machine. If you watch the fight scene closely, you can see that a stunt double is used some of the time and that it is that double who ducked. The fan group for the Adventures of Superman (The Adventures Continue) has published more details about Dick Van Sickle making this mistake.
