I re-watched Superman, The Movie, the other day. The first time I had seen it since getting it on DVD. And I awoke this morning with the phrase above going around in my head, searching for an image to attach to it.
The opening scenes with Marlon Brando (and Susannah York... ) on Krypton are my favorites. After Superman emerges from the Fortress of Solitude for the first time, you can pretty much keep the rest of the film.
I've got the entire trial scene memorized. "This is no fantasy......no careless product of wild imagination..."
