One Classic FIlm…

…Many formats.  The above is just a sample of the huge output WB has released over the last three decades in a fine demonstration of the longevity of this timeless classic.  From the top, Super8 reel, NTSC Laserdisc, Video cassette with feature in widescreen (I remember this being very exciting in 1993, look how far we’ve come!!) and the 2001 Special Edition DVD.  One wonders what can we expect in the years to come beyond Blu-ray?  Superman in 3D? time will tell but ultimately there is no substitute for reliving the experience on the silver screen – Take Flight…!
