Re: Superman II (The Donner Cut)

So many good scenes in both versions. If TPTB had, at the very least, kept the Jor El scenes--showing him in flashback at the beginning, kept the scene where Jor El instead of Lara explained to Kal El why it was impossible to join with an Earth woman and continue to guard humanity and, most poignant, Jor El making the final sacrifice to make his son whole thus demonstrating his unconditional love--it might have been the best of both worlds.

But the Salkinds didn't want to pony up for Brando even though Superman I ended up making a fortune. Chintzy cheapskates.
