You’ll enjoy this story told by the late Superman actor, Christopher Reeve, on the day he bumped into John Gielgud at Pinewood Studios.

“Filming Superman was sometimes tedious and exasperating. I spent months hanging on wires for brief moments in the movie that would then have to be reshot. But ultimately it’s a wonderful experience.

“One of my favourite memories is of running into John Gielgud in a hallway at Pinewood Studios. We had met at a social occasion; now I was dressed in full Superman regalia.

“As he shook my hand he said, ‘So delightful to see you. What are you doing now?'”
