Margot Kidder Signed Lois Lane 11x14 Display (2)

"Really, Lois, supposing that man had shot you? Is it worth risking your life over ten dollars, two credit cards, a hairbrush, and a lipstick?"

 

This great display from the 1978 classic Superman consists of a great picture of Lois Lane and Clark Kent and the signature of Margot Kidder who played the feisty Daily Planet journalist in the classic movies. Margot has signed the card in silver, and whilst it does not photograph well, it looks great in person. It has been professionally double matted using acid free materials to an overall size of 14x11 - in Superman's favourite colours of blue and red of course. Keep an eye out for other Superman display pieces in matching colours.

 

Margot successfully through a turbulent period in her life. She was in a serious car crash in 1990 and couldn't work for two years, becoming bankrupt. In 1996 she suffered badly from manic depression. She was living in a state of paranoia, convinced that her first husband was trying to kill her. Kidder lived rough, wandering about the streets of LA (barely recognizable after cutting her hair off and removing some of her dental work) before hiding underneath a family's porch which was located near the studio where "Superman" was filmed. Fortunately, her life is back on track after having faced the "demons" of her condition. She is now a regular guest and autograph conventions.

 

The original 1978 movie told the story of how unable to convince the ruling council of Krypton that their world would destroy itself soon, scientist Jor-El took drastic measures to preserve the Kryptonian race: He sends his infant son Kal-El to Earth. There, gaining great powers under Earth's yellow sun, he will become a champion of truth and justice. Raised by the Kents, an elderly farm couple, Clark Kent learns that his abilities must be used for good. The adult Clark travels to Metropolis, where he becomes a mild-mannered reporter for the Daily Planet...and a caped wonder whose amazing feats stun the city: Superman! Meanwhile, Lex Luthor, the world's greatest criminal mind, is plotting the greatest real estate swindle of all time. Can't even the Man of Steel stop this nefarious scheme?

 

The development of the best method to show Superman flying was a long period of experimentation. The methods attempted included simply catapulting a dummy into the air, a remote control model airplane painted as the character and simply animating the flying sequences. The producers settled for a combination of back projection and specially designed zoom lenses that could create the illusion of movement by zooming in on Christopher Reeve while making the back projection appear to recede.

Superman remains arguably the most popular of all superheroes. Richard Donner’s 1978 classic, and its sequels, marked giant steps forward in the world of special effects. As the posters for the movie screamed out “You’ll believe a man can fly”. Christopher Reeve’s devastating accident in the early 1990s is well documented. He is no longer able to sign and autographed items from any of the original cast members are very collectable. Bring the breathless magic of the movie into your home with this wonderful image.
