Richard Donner, one of the all time greats. Even though I’ve heard all his stories before, I never get tired of hearing him talk about them. It’s great to see he hasn’t lost his touch, and is still doing well.

This film will surely stand the test of time I believe. This was a wonderful gift Richard Donner and Christopher Reeve gave us. My Favorite movie and favorite superhero movie. I can’t thank them enough for this wonderful artistic film.
