The Making of Superman: The Movie pocketbook (1978)

1978MakingofSupermanTheMovieBook

Published in 1978 by Warner Books was this fantastic pocketbook simply titled The Making of Superman: The Movie. This two hundred twenty-four page book, written by David Michael Petrou, covers the production of the now classic film in great detail. Page nine begins with the tale of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster as they shopped Superman around and continues through a compelling and winding story of the production of the 1978 blockbuster film. The book also includes sixteen pages of black-and-white production photos.

This is one of my favorite books in the collection since it contains so much detail about the movie’s production.

    • Yeah, it’s great. The writer throws in some unexpected quotes from cast members about the production. He even recounts Phyllis (Martha Kent) Thaxter talking about how interesting it was to go from having children who liked the Superman comics and the TV series to suddenly being a part of the lore.
