‘The Collection…’

Exclusive to the UK and released around 1989, Superman; The Collection was one of the first video boxsets made available by Warner Bros.  Culled from the second run of individually released titles and repackaged as ‘The Superheroes’ collection (Including Supergirl and other WB catalog titles including Santa Claus: The Movie) the set was  expensive at the time and therefore a rarity today.

Contained in a handsome box utilizing elements of the shield artwork from Superman: the Movie and Daniel Goozee’s painting for the Superman IV: The Quest For Peace poster, its interesting to note how many production companies were tied into the distribution (WB/Weintraub/Cannon/Hollywood NItes) before Warner’s regained full ownership.  It would be decades before advances in technology would permit them to exploit the titles once again in a far more definitive boxset on DVD…
