  1. Supervised and approved by composer John Williams, this special 3-CD release is limited to units and features a page booklet with in-depth liner notes. The heroic art design is by Jim Titus. A must for all film and film music enthusiasts, this outstanding reissue – simply put – is like hearing SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE for the very first.
  2. 2. Jaws () John Williams' ominous music for director Spielberg's first major hit, won the composer an Oscar. The threatening shark motif, two low notes played alternately on the tuba, has since become synonymous with sharks in general and imminent danger in the water.
  3. The music was one of the last pieces to come into place. Williams' "Theme from Superman (Main Title)" was released as a single, reaching #81 on the U.S. Billboard Hot and #69 Cash Box. Williams liked that the film did not take itself too seriously and that it had a theatrical camp feel to it.
  4. Jerry Goldsmith would give the title theme a cameo in his mid's score for Supergirl and John Ottman eventually utilized all of Williams' major themes for the successful continuation of Superman Returns nearly 30 years later. The key to the longevity of Williams' music for the Superman legend is its timelessness. The instant recognizability.
  5. La-La Land Records, Warner Bros. Entertainment, Warner Music Group and DC Entertainment proudly continue SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE’s 40 th anniversary celebration with a 3-CD remastered limited edition re-issue of the original motion picture score to the feature film classic, starring Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder, and directed by Richard Donner.
