30 Day Film Challenge / Day 27

Today the challenge is your favorite superhero film.

I am going old school on this one — all the way back 42 years ago. “Superman” was released in 1978, directed by Richard Donner. With a musical score by Paul Williams and a cost of $50 million, the film earned over $300 million at the box office.

Superman was one of THE superheroes of my childhood, so maybe I have a special affinity for the character. I loved Christopher Reeve in the lead role and with the star studded cast, it might have been difficult to miss with consumers.


I decided to take on this challenge for July after reading about it from SandmanJazz. Check out his blog and his entry for the twenty-seventh day of the challenge. Maybe even join in!

  1. A hard one for me, especially as I would have chosen the same film, if only for the fabulously sexy Valerie Perrine, and a great cameo from Gene Hackman. I don’t watch them at all now, so will go with this quirky and amusing one that I did watch, which is very ‘modern’.
    If you haven’t seen it, I suggest you watch it. 🙂

    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I like Sandman’s The Shadow and I like your 1st Superman the best. However I must say Wonder Woman, was very good until another multi explosive ending. I like it because my grand nephew, Wayne Dalglish was both Stunt Supervisor and Fight Supervisor, as well as stuntman. Hate to tell secrets but that’s not Gal doing that fighting, it’s Wayne.
    He also did the supervision in Beetley Pete’ favorite Deadpool, and is waiting for the sequel to resume filming in Germany.

  3. I liked this movie too! I wouldn’t have minded Margot Kidder as Lois so much if she had a more melodic voice. She sounded like she was just recovering from laryngitis. Christopher Reeve made my heart flutter.

    1. That’s interesting, Marge. I always thought she conveyed a gravely reporter trying to fit into a man’s world.


  4. I remember this Superman being a romantic movie which I enjoyed. I love watching old movies with heroic characters. Still, when I think of superheroes, I also think of extraordinary people who lived real lives like MLK. I guess those would be biographical films. Gorillas in the Mist about Dianne Fossey comes to mind. And then there’s the Matrix…..;)
