And just in case you can’t read it.
“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?'”
