SUPERMAN
1978, Warner Bros., 143 min, USA, Dir: Richard Donner

The film that set the standard for all big-screen comic-book adaptations, before or since. Virtual unknown Christopher Reeve is brilliantly cast as the heroic Man of Steel and his bumbling counterpart Clark Kent, with terrific support from Margot Kidder as Lois Lane and Gene Hackman as Superman’s arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor.


THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL
1951, 20th Century Fox, 92 min, USA, Dir: Robert Wise

Klaatu barada nikto! Christ-like alien Klaatu (Michael Rennie) arrives in Washington, D.C., with one-eyed robot to Gort to try to curtail Earth’s weapons of mass destruction before they can jeopardize the universe. Patricia Neal turns in a memorable performance as one of the only human beings attempting to understand him in this still relevant anti-war, anti-nuclear proliferation masterpiece. "The universe grows smaller every day, and the threat of aggression by any group, anywhere, can no longer be tolerated. There must be security for all, or no one is secure. Now, this does not mean giving up any freedom, except the freedom to act irresponsibly." The lyrics to "Science Fiction Double Feature," an ode to 1950s sci fi classics, in The Rocky Horror Picture Show reference Michael Rennie and the title of this movie. With Billy Gray, Hugh Marlowe.
