Superman the movie, Daily Planet Twin Nuclear Missile Test

original movie prop

This is a screen used Daily Planet newpaper used in Superman the movie. It shows Otis (played by Ned Beatty) picking up the paper then head to Lex's secret lair. It shows a long scene of Lex explaining his disbolical plan to use these two missiles to cause great havoc in the US. But is later folded by Superman.

The second photo that I am showing of the Daily Planet with the same headline but showing a different missile, with this being told to me by Richard Donner a few years ago, that the prop production team made these two sets of Daily Planet papers and asked which one he liked. He said that without looking he just pointed. The one that was chosen is the one that Lex has in the movie. So the second paper is movie produced by not screen used. Which they might've used as filler papers to make the stacks look bigger(?). But there you have it. The tail of two Papers. 

Also I would like to explain that most of these Cover pages are a one sheet page made a little wider and the extra on the left side of the paper where usually glued to an actual British newspaper.
