In 2015, i acquired an original 35mm color transparency - and its copyright - of 19-year-old christopher reeve (see a cropped b&w version on the right). at the time the photo was taken, chris was attending cornell university where he ultimately earned a bachelor’s degree in english and music theory in 1974 before attending julliard school for drama in new york city to pursue graduate studies. also during that time period he was very active at stage acting in a variety of challenging roles.

here’s a side-by-side-comparison of 19-year-old jeff east (left) and 19-year-old christopher reeve (right). jeff did a great job as the teenage clark kent in superman-the movie. #superman #superman1978 #dccomics #dccinematicuniverse #superman40 #christopherreeve #supermanthemovie #capedwonder #supermanmovie #richarddonner #richarddonnersuperman #comicbooks #superhero #verisimilitude #warnerbrosstudios #manofsteel #fanexperience #supermanmovie40 #supermanthemovie40th #youllbelieveamancanfly #superman80 #superman80years #superman80thanniversary

Marc mcclure - “jimmy olsen” - is a lovely guy. we’ve been friends for over 21 years. it’s always a blast being with him.
marc sent me this letter 14 years ago today: “thanks jim for everything you’ve done for chris. he is, was and always will be an inspiration to us and everyone all around the world. i am always grateful for the times in my life where i am fortunate enough to cross paths with a teacher…and chris is a great teacher. he was a good guy who will never be forgotten…we were lucky to be a part of his life. best wishes and keep your love for superman more alive than ever.”

“some rare human beings transcend our greatest dreams of wanting to be strong and bring freedom, good, and justice to the world. christopher reeve is one of them. he made our dreams a reality. in a fantasy world, superman is the best incarnation of our finest qualities. in the real world, christopher reeve is a true super man who will forever inspire us to strive to attain those qualities. chris, thank you for teaching me to believe.”

T’was 14 years ago on this day, the 10th of october 2004 when our superman christopher reeve left his fans with a heavy heart. saddened by his death as the whole kryptonians mourned.

christopher reeve, the chiseled, strapping “superman” of celluloid who became another kind of hero as a force for spinal cord research after a devastating horse-riding accident, dead at 52 with complications from an infection caused by a bedsore.

he was been in a quadriplegic for the last 9 years of his life who vowed that he would one day walk again.
kryptonians having those high hopes that they would see reeve walk and fly again. but sadly, instead he flew up, up in heaven.

to our superman, christopher reeve... thank you for making us believed that a man can fly.
an inspiration.
a role model.
a true hero.
gone but never forgotten.

fly free our superman!

Christopher reeve once described himself to me in 1994 as "gung ho" when it came to his dual performance as superman and clark kent. this photo of chris, with richard donner partially veiled in shadow, says it all. christopher reeve's commitment to the craft of acting, family, friends & fans, living life well, and helping other disabled people will be forever remembered with great respect, appreciation, and admiration.
