619 Royal Premiere : Superman III
First viewed : 18 July 1983
Here's a reminder of what one of the big films of the summer was, the third Superman film starring Christopher Reeve. Here he was up against Robert Vaughan rather than Gene Hackman with sidekicks computer hacker Richard Pryor and busty femme fatale Pamela Stephenson.
The programme consisted of Peter Marshall and Susan King ( neither of whom ring any bells ) hovering around the ABC cinema in London and buttonholing celebrities , whether connected to the film or not, as they arrived at the building. This of course was interspersed with clips of the movie.
It didn't inspire me to go and watch it and I still haven't seen it.
