FP030: “What a Super Man!"

Richard Donner’s magnificent, half-finished epic has become the iconic embodiment of The Man of Steel, regardless of the machinations of the suits at Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Christopher Reeve’s portrayal is up there with Clark Gable as Rhett Butler, Lon Chaney as The Phantom of the Opera and Sean Connery as James Bond: Often imitated, never equaled. Ironically, Donner has been allowed to “finish” his version as best he could and it is now available as “Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut.”
