Superman III (1983) (part 3 of 6)
Cut to that night at Clark’s high school reunion in Smallville. A banner outside reads “Class of 1965”, which messes with the original time frame, but I guess it was necessary for director Richard “I worked with the Beatles, remember?” Lester to be able to include the Beatles version of “Roll Over Beethoven” at the party.
Cut to a boozy jerk bragging about his exploits while he stands next to a huge blowup picture of himself in his high school football uniform. He’s Brad Wilson, and he will eventually be Clark’s romantic nemesis. Well, not really, but let’s go with that and get this over with that much quicker.
Various attendees wear those fugly gowns from the early 80’s which seemed to be made from living room curtains. Clark talks to one of his teachers and then spots Lana Lang (played by Annette O’Toole, who can now be seen on the WB’s Smallville. Coincidence?). Lana is wearing a lovely lemon number here, even if it is a little too “old” for her. Clark makes a beeline over to her, and they talk as Lana carries a stack of paper plates on top of a stack of LPs. She hands the paper plates to the DJ, and puts the LPs on the buffet table. Hah! Women!
