If nothing else SUPERGIRL has a terrific score by Jerry Goldsmith.

As bad as Supergirl was, I think it was still better than Superman III and IV.

I doubt it. It was a simpler time. But some of those old Silver Age comics are surprisingly kinky if you look past the Comic Code-approved goofiness.

Like the time Lois was turned into a horse and fell in love with Comet the Super-Horse. Or the time Superboy fell for this glamorous Egyptian foreign exchange student, who turned out to be the resurrected mummy of Cleopatra!

(I swear to God, I'm not making any of this up!)

Getting serious, the problem with SUPERGIRL was that the screenwriter (or the producers) seemed to be taking their cues from early 1960's issues that already seemed goofy and juvenile by the time the movie was filmed in 1984. One almost wonders if somebody made the mistake of giving the screenwriter too many of the original Silver Age comics for reference, instead of, say, a bunch of SUPERMAN comics from the eighties . . . .

I wonder if Chris Reeve had agreed to do a cameo in it would it be any more fondly remembered?

I don't know. Are SUPERMAN III and IV fondly remembered?

Re: Best and worst comic book movies

I confess: I remember liking SUPERGIRL at the time, and even saw it twice in the theaters.

Yes. And, unlike the current books, the stories were written for young kids.

Same here. I liked SUPERMAN III too.

SUPERMAN IV can bite me.

Supergirl is a guilty pleasure for me. I KNOW that the writing is pretty bad, but goddamnit I can't hate it. Supergirl in a short skirt is also nice.

I've never seen Supergirl. Or The Rocketeer. Perhaps I should.

When it comes to the Rocketeer, it's not "perhaps." It's "definitely." Great film.
