Quote of the Day

“This is the biggest sin. This is the best kid that ever lived. Without him, there would've been no Superman.”

-- Director Richard Donner in the DVD commentary for “Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut.” He's initially talking about what a sin it is that the producers, Alexander and Ilya Salkind, cheapened their product, his “Superman” movies; but then the film's dedication to Christopher Reeve comes up and he alludes to the real sin of Christopher Reeve having lost his life. He goes on to talk about Reeve for another five minutes. It's quite touching.
