One of the most well-regarded superhero films of all time, Superman was a box-office smash when it rocketed to Earth in 1978. The last son of the dead planet Krypton, Kal-El (Christopher Reeve) is found as a baby by Jonathan (Glenn Ford) and Martha Kent (Phyllis Thaxter) when his spaceship crashes just outside of Smallville, USA. Given the name “Clark” by his adopted parents, the boy grows up strong in the American heartland, developing amazing powers under the light of the yellow sun. One day, Clark finds a glowing crystal, and with it finds out about his alien heritage, the knowledge imparted to him by his birth father, Jor-El (Marlon Brando). The boy becomes a man, and moves to Metropolis to work for the Daily Planet newspaper, finding love in Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) and danger in the form of criminal genius Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman).
