“I think of Chris all the time. This (cardboard cutout of him as Superman) is right next to my pool, and I get in the pool a lot and I look up there and I think about him a lot. There’s nobody that could have played that role the way he played it. I don’t think anyone will ever come along and play it like he played it — others will have to play it different — and on top of that, he was a really special individual. A great kid, a great person, loving and devoted, a great sense of humor and the personification of a good friend. He also made my career. I think about him an awful lot.” — Richard Donner
Here’s a 1986 Diet Coke advertisement. The ‘S’ shield looks very familiar to the Superman movie ‘S’ seen here.

Here’s a photo I just now dug out of the archives and scanned in honor of Gene Hackman’s 84th birthday today. Featuring Gene with Chris Reeve at the Superman-The Movie Hollywood Premiere at the Mann’s Chinese Theater on December 14, 1978.
Two seldom seen publicity photos featuring Christopher Reeve as Superman with only ONE hand on his hip rather than the more common BOTH hands on his hips.

I am immediately reminded of baby Superman’s starship trench. I hope no one was hurt at these farms. There is a Facebook page to help the farmers.

Did you know that 4′ 1″ Kiran Shah was an uncredited stuntman on ‘Superman-The Movie’? He was used for long distant flying shots (although I am uncertain where he is actually seen in the final cut of the movie).
I have been in touch with the author of Kiran’s future biography and am happy to reveal this CapedWonder exclusive rare and unpublished behind-the-scenes photo of Kirah in his Superman costume. I’ll keep you posted on the progress of his biography.
