A Week In Film #311: Krypton

Superman: The Movie title screen
Superman: The Movie
The original, Richard Donner-helmed comic book movie, with Christopher Reeve perfect as the alien orphan trying to get by on a planet where he is all but a god. Margot Kidder nails the screwball tone perfectly as Lois Lane, whilst high-ham villainy is represented by the likes of Gene Hackman, Ned Beatty, Terence Stamp, Sarah Douglas and Jack O’Halloran.
