One Daily Planet newspaper and one Italian newspaper from Richard Lester’s superhero sequel Superman III. The production-made newspapers refer to the moments when “evil” Superman (Christopher Reeve) changed the angle of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and when he returned to normal, but the sequences were ultimately not used in the film’s final cut.
Each consisting of a front and back cover, these black-and-white papers are printed on newspaper stock. One features the Daily Planet logo at the top, while the other features an image of the straightened tower. An image of Superman features on the front of both, with various articles surrounding the photo. The newspapers display yellowing discoloration, fold lines due to storage, and small tears on the sides. Dimensions: 16.5″ x 13.5″ (42 cm x 34.5 cm)
Estimate: $2,000 – 3,000
