After Superman III, Christopher Reeves had little interest in reprising his role, and the creators wanted to milk a little more money out of the franchise, so they decided to make Supergirl. The role was Helen Slater’s film debut, and she played alongside Faye Dunaway and Peter O’Toole. While the film did well for its first weekend, it was considered a box office bomb, and critics were equally unimpressed. Slater may not have reprised this role, but she did find a modicum of success in Hollywood.

The main part of Brando’s daily prep for the shoot was to get his face to look like a man who had see a lot. And this is a look that can’t be accomplished with makeup.
