Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
Richard Donner’s Superman film was HUGE deal to me as a kid. The milky haze of Metropolis, Christopher Reeve’s humble, yet confident portrayal of Kal-El, Gene Hackman hamming it up, John Williams’ iconic score (yet to be topped by any other superhero score… although Danny Elfman’s Batman comes close), Superman’s gut wrenching scream of anger and agony… The whole thing feels like magic on the screen to me still to this day.
I mean… look at this Behind the Scenes pic… No greenscreen, no visible wires (I’m sure they’re there or else Donner and Reeve have some explaining to do), just a man flying in front of a camera. Click to make bigger.
Here’s the pic:
I've been told we can thank the good folks at CapedWonder.com for uncovering and posting this image. The one sent to me was slightly cropped, so I've replaced it with the original image from Caped Wonder with a link to CapedWonder's full sized mega image!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare, the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Take a ride with Popeye in tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic.
