Everyone's Excited About the SUPERGIRL Movie!

Here's coverage from the October 1, 1984 Amazing Heroes.




Look at the photo on the last page.  Wasn't Helen Slater great for this role?  IMO she did a wonderful job of conveying the semi-innocence of Kara the stranger to Earth, and the resolute-yet-inexperienced Supergirl.

It just really stinks that the Supergirl movie which was made ... STINKS.  Faye Dunaway's acting was atrocious and campy, and the whole "mean wizard lady" storyline was el stupido to the MAX.

They should have had the mysterious power orb be a strange power source for which the nations of the Earth were squaring off.  Supergirl could have been arguing with a young male scientist for its acquisition.  Then the orb could start warping reality, forcing  a quest by Kara through the Phantom Zone.

Or ANYTHING but Brenda Vaccaro and Faye Dunaway (and Peter Cook was pretty vomitous too).

See you on Thursday, super guys and gals!
