Richard Donner brings the iconic comic-book hero to the silver screen. When the film got released, masses of people showed up to get into the theatres. Helicopters, radio and even television were used to deviate the masses to less crowded theaters. Urban legend or not: a more beautiful homage for a superhero is hard to imagine. Superman is actually an inhabitant of the planet Krypton, but on Earth he is the charming journalist Clark Kent. He was sent to our planet by his father Jor- El to save him from the danger threatening Krypton. Superman is faster than a lightning bolt, smarter than a computer, protects the innocent and fights evil.
