The final Superman film, in the Salkind period version, and the only one not to be shot at Pinewood Studios, from this period. The infamous Superman IV would be shot at the Cannon Elstree Film Studios, as by 1987 the Salkinds sold the Rights onto Cannon Films, who had themselves by then had acquired the old EMI Elstree Studios, previously known the Star Wars and Indiana Jones film base, which in turn would ultimately lead to half of Elstree Studios being demolished for the Tesco Supermarket in Borehamwood.

"Superman IV: The Quest For Peace" is a definite improvement over the embarassing "Superman 3".
The cast give sincere performances despite the film's flaws with Christopher Reeve handing in another great performance as Clark Kent/Superman.
"Superman 4" is a flawed film, most notably the special effects and the bad editing, as well as the cut scenes, but I like the film.
Alexander Courage's adaptation of John Williams' music is lovely and is certainly much better than Ken Thorne's version in "Superman 2". It's a shame there's no Superman 4 soundtrack available to purchase.
"Superman 4: The Quest For Peace" is a decent film, and one I certainly don't mind watching.
