Rated PG for peril, some mild ensuality and language.
Jor-El (Brando) knows that his planet, Krypton, will soon be destroyed, so he decides to send his infant son to the distant planet Earth where he will be safe. Taken in by the Kent family, the young boy, now named Clark, begins to discover he possesses some unusual powers. Knowing he must hide these powers from the mere mortals on Earth, he becomes a man of two identities: the mild mannered reporter for the daily planet, and the most versatile good guy ever...Superman! Christopher Reeve is dashing as the man of steel. The film won an Oscar

Reason #47 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Perry and Gary are the biggest reasons that I read WIDESCREEN REVIEW! Perry’s expertise goes way back to the movie sound page days. He has always given honest and straightforward information on home theatre. Gary goes way back to the days of stereo and quad and his knowledge and way of writing are as top notch as you will ever find!
