A great documentary.
9 December 2003 | by mactavish325See all my reviews

Well, first off I bought this DVD, and I was surprised to learn things that I never knew about, like when Robert Redford and Paul Newman were up for Superman. Tom Mankiewicz, Richard Donner, Christopher Reeve, and Margot Kidder make regular appearences in the documentary, Tom Mankiewicz seems to remember every single detail which made this more worthwhile to watch. A must see. ****
