Out of today's awesome technology comes the most spectacular

entertainment in the history of motion pictures.

Now, go behind the scenes for a close-up!





In the early days of the Depression, two imaginative Cleveland kids

created a picture to the All-American Man of Steel...

45 years later SUPERMAN hits the big screen!

This is a modern SUPERMAN, backed by a myriad of sensational effects,

a dazzling cast and the best film crew in the world.

This SUPERMAN is the ultimate superhero-

and this is the story of how he came to the screen.



The making of Superman The Movie took four years, 1000 people,

eleven separate film units, three studios, filming on three continents

and in eight countries and over a million feet of film.

Now, you can read the whole story of the spectacular and complex

undertaking in this first hand report by a writer who was there.
