Superman: The Unauthorized Biography
Glen Weldon (Author)
A celebration of Superman's life and history - in time for his 75th birthday. How has the Big Blue Boy Scout stayed so popular for so long? How has he changed with the times, and what essential aspects of him have remained constant? This fascinating biography examines Superman as a cultural phenomenon through 75 years of action-packed adventures, from his early years as a social activist in circus tights to his growth into the internationally renowned demigod he is today.
Hardcover: 352 pages
Seventies superstars James Caan, Dustin Hoffman (who also turned down the part of Lex Luthor), Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen and Al Pacino were all considered. Paul Newman turned down the parts of Supes, his father and Luthor. Neil Diamond, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone all campaigned to get the job, but none of them were considered. Even Muhammad Ali was in the discussion! Amazingly, one man who actually got to audition for the part in 1976 was Olympic gold medal decathlon athlete (and future plastic surgery enthusiast) Bruce Jenner.
