God I am in tears rewatching this scene. Of all the Superman movie scenes this is the one I remember the most. I saw it at the theater in 1978. It will always be the best Superman movie ever.

I know they were acting but her look of wonder amazement always stuck with me. I know she battled mental illness but I hope she realized the impact her and Christopher Reeve had on a generation of young people. That you canbe brave, strong, fearless but also hold onto innocence, have a strong moral compass. Doing what’s right for the sake of doing the right thing.

May she have her own wings. The theme is from the Maureen McGovern song “Can I Read Your Mind”.
