NEW YORK — Christopher Reeve has the unique distinction of being the image of Superman and a symbol of courage over personal hardship.
So it was appropriate that nearly every honoree that took the stage at the American Image Awards Monday night praised Reeve for his off-screen acts of heroism, while inevitably making reference to his most famous role as the Man of Steel, which he first brought to the silver screen in 1978. Coincidentally, that was the same year as the first annual American Apparel & Footwear Association benefit.
