Superman III Der Stählerne Blitz Movie Program

Superman III German Movie Program. Released in West Germany on 9th March 1984 almost 9 months after release in the USA. Known as Superman III Der Stählerne Blitz (The Steel Lightning). Although critically panned as a goofy Superman movie, Chris’s portrayal of Evil Superman was highly praised. Of Richard Lester’s direction for the movie, Chris had the following to say.

“[He] was always looking for a gag – sometimes to the point where the gags involving Richard Pryor went over the top. I mean, I didn’t think that his going off the top of a building, on skis with a pink tablecloth around his shoulders, was particularly funny.” Christopher Reeve
