Taking Flight: The Development Of Superman

Making Superman: Filming The Legend

The Magic Behind The Cape

A fascinating look behind the making of Superman: The Movie. Everyone is involved here, including Christopher Reeve. It's interesting getting their point of view on all the behind the scenes stuff that even I didn't know about. Everything here is disected in this 90 minute documentary that is broken up into 3 parts. Seeing the Test screens are pretty cool and although I knew that Lesley Ann Warren tested, I did not know that Ann Archer was also up for the role for Lois Lane. So, seeing her test was breathtaking. She would have been perfect for the role, but then that comedic angle that Margot Kidder brought to Lois would have been lost.

Probably the best part of the doc is The Magic Behind The Cape, where all the FX Shots are revealed, which make it even more amazing in that it was all done with practical shots since there was no such thing as Digital/CGI FX at the time.

Definitely check out the bonus stuff on the DVD. It's well worth your time and one of the better supplements that make the movie even richer.
