1He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Radio at 6150 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
2His desire to take some time off from the Superman radio show led to the creation of part of Superman lore: his vulnerability to kryptonite. For episodes in which Collyer did not appear, Superman was said to be held prisoner under a trap door with a piece of the deadly metal. This later became part of the comics continuity and an important part of all subsequent portrayals of the character.
