CHRISTOPHER REEVE 'FLYING' COSTUME FROM "SUPERMAN"
Warner Bros., 1978
A complete Superman costume that Christopher Reeve wore as he portrayed the super hero. Consisting of a turquoise, red and yellow leotard with an 'S' logo on the chest, a red cape with the 'S' logo on the back, a pair of turquoise leggings, a yellow vinyl belt and a pair of red leather boots, this particular ensemble was worn for the flying sequences as evidenced by the slightly different turquoise color of the costume (it matches the 'blue screen' filming that simulated flying) and the harness slits in it. A handwritten notation of Nathan-Berman CR Fly appears on the inside zipper lining of the leotard and the boots note either CR R 4 or CR L 4. A letter of authenticity stating that this costume originally came from Ilya Salkind, executive producer of "Superman," is also included.
