Behind The (Deleted) Scenes – Tornado Rescue…

More rare on the set stills from the Hertfordshire location of Superman IV: The Quest For Peace in 1986. Note director Sidney J. Furie (top picture, second from right) and Christopher Reeve’s boot preserving loafers for rehearsal. This entire scene (featuring both Reeve children) was present in the UK theatrical and VHS release but absent from the US theatrical and DVD offerings until returning in grainy workprint-style footage on the Superman IV: Deluxe Edition DVD…

Marvellous Margot…

Margot_JumperWith her husky voice and sassy attitude, it was a pleasure to finally see how Canadian Margot beat the competition to win the part of Lois Lane as seen in the screen tests of Superman: The Movie Special Edition on DVD. From the top, Lundi Magazine poster, Lundi Pinup, Japanese pinup and UK Clipping. You’ve got me – who’s got you…

Stunt Team ’87…

Shown above are genuine branded crew-used garments acquired from the Propstore Of London some years ago and easily some of the favorite pieces of my collection. I often wear the Stunt Team jacket to conventions and such and always get good notices. Margot Kidder even asked if I had worked on the picture (I would have been 15 years old at the time). The jacket is visible in some behind the scenes footage of the excised Nuclearman 1 fight from a TV special hosted by Johnny Ball – see it here
