A newspaper, envelope and a stack of paper money from Richard Donner’s Superman. This style of newspaper appeared when Perry White (Jackie Cooper) lambasted his staff in the film. Printed on newspaper stock, the front page features a composite image of Superman flying and displays the headline “Look Ma – No Wires!” The envelope was used in the Daily Planet offices and has the Daily Planet logo printed in the top left corner.
