First, it was on the stage…and then it was on the big screen.  Join use for a couple of big-screen adaptations and then also for 1978’s “Superman” in honor of CULPEPERCON!

“A Few Good Men” (Columbia, 1992)

Okay, we think you can handle the truth:  Aaron Sorkin’s military drama debuted on Broadway in 1989.  It became a Rob Reiner directed film in 1992 with great performances from Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson.  (Color, 138 minutes)

“12 Angry Men” (United Artists, 1957)

It started out as a TV episode of the “Studio One” anthology series in 1954 but quickly was adapted and played on the stage.  Still, it only reached Broadway in 2004.  The classic film version came along in 1957, directed by Sidney Lumet.  It features a Who’s Who of American character actors, anchored by lead Henry Fonda.  (Black and white, 96 minutes.)

“Superman” (Warner Bros., 1976)

The NAVCC Packard Campus Theater helps celebrate CULPEPERCON by presenting “Superman.”  Christopher Reeve does an excellent job bringing Clark Kent and his alter ego to the big screen.  Reeve wasn’t the first, and boy-oh-boy we know not the last Superman, but was probably the best.  Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, and Glenn Ford are in the mix as well.  (Color, 143 minutes, National Film Registry, 2017)
