The cast and filmmakers from “Superman: The Movie” reunited to celebrate the DVD release of the film and for a good cause. Warner Brothers donated $10,000 to the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation which encourages and supports research to develop effective treatments and a cure for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury and other central nervous system disorders. Stars from the film in attendance include Margot Kidder and Valerie Perrine who posed for photographs with the costumes from the original film.
