Goodbye, Superman

Filed under: — joe @ 10:11 pm

I was saddened (and shocked) to read that Christopher Reeve passed away yesterday from heart failure. I will never forget watching Superman for the first time and seeing him take flight while John Williams beautiful score lifted our spirits with him. No one else will ever be Superman for me, when he made that transition from Clark to Kal-El in Lois’ apartment… when his posture, voice, everything changed with the removal of the glasses…it was the perfect example of what acting means. My love for movies started with Superman and I’ll always look back on it with a child’s innocent eyes. So just like every other comic fan out there and for everyone who believed that a man could fly… we’ll miss the Man of Steel.

Grace and peace

Joe
