A Daily Planet “Superman Extinguishes Flames” newspaper from Richard Lester’s superhero sequel Superman III. The production-made newspaper refers to the moment ‘evil’ Superman (Christopher Reeve) blew out the Olympic flame, but the sequence was ultimately not used in the final cut of the film.
Consisting of the front and back cover, the piece is printed on newspaper stock with the Daily Planet logo at the top. A black-and-white image of Superman standing proudly features on the front, with various articles surrounding the photo and multiple advertisements adorning the back cover. The newspaper displays minor discolouration, a fold line due to storage, and two small tears on the top edge. Dimensions: 57.5 cm x 42.5 cm (22 ¾” x 16 ¾”)
