Check out this exciting and stylish video, A Smallville Man, by Mauricio Abril that perfectly embraces the essence of Superman and why I love the character so much.
Mauricio wrote: What I’ve always enjoyed about the mythology of Superman is that he becomes this great hero specifically because it was the Kents who found and raised him. If he had landed anywhere else, he would have become someone entirely different. So A Smallville Man became my outlet for emphasizing that part of the mythology. It became a story about how the essence of what makes Superman the hero that he is can be traced back to the influence of his parents, in this case his father’s willingness to do the right thing by standing up for someone else.

When asked about working with Christopher Reeve, Shane said that Chris was a lovely guy, very focused and always in character on the set.
(Autographed photo below is courtesy of Christopher Reeve Tribute.)
Shane appeared in both Superman II and Superman III, as well as countless other motion pictures including The Spy Who Loved Me, The People That Time Forgot (with Super villain Sarah Douglas), Star Wars, The Dirty Dozen and more. Shane had a long-running association with TV producer Gerry Anderson; Thunderbirds fans recognize him as the voice actor behind the character of Scott Tracy.
Thank you, Shane, for being a great actor in so many memorable motion pictures and television shows, and for meeting the fans at conventions!
Be sure to check out the two videos below, as well as his website.

Five children were hired to portray Clark Kent in Superman-The Movie. Only one, Aaron Smolinski, ended up in the movie. Richard Donner asked set photographer Bob Penn to shoot still photos of all five boys for a photo montage to show a progression of time between Aaron lifting the truck and Clark at the football field. Obviously, no such montage appeared in the final movie. Here are three of many photos Bob shot showing the boys performing “superfeats”: Aaron (3), Aaron’s brother Travis (5), and Darren Shaw (9).
As a side note, Richard Donner featured a photo montage in The Omen – see it here.
