There she is, ready to fight for truth, justice and the American way, just like her Kryptonian cousin. SHe’s Helen Slater, come to Earth to battle supernatural evil as Supergirl. Supergirl is a 1984 superhero film directed by Jeannot Szwarc. It is based on the DC Comics character of the same name and is a spin-off to Alexander and Ilya Salkind’s Superman film series. The film stars Faye Dunaway, Helen Slater, and Peter O’Toole with Marc McClure reprising his role as Jimmy Olsen from Superman. Kara Zor-El (Helen Slater) lives in an isolated Kryptonian community called Argo City, in a pocket of trans-dimensional space. Zaltar (Peter O’Toole) allows Kara to see a unique and immensely powerful item known as the Omegahedron, which he has borrowed without the knowledge of the city government, and which powers the city. However, after a mishap, the Omegahedron is blown out into space. Much to the distress of her parents (Simon Ward and Mia Farrow), Kara follows it to Earth (undergoing a transformation into “Supergirl” in the process) in an effort to recover it and save the city. Christopher Reeve was slated to have a cameo as Superman, but bowed out early on. His non-appearance in the film is explained via a news broadcast (overheard by Selena) stating that Superman has left Earth on a “peace-seeking mission” to a distant galaxy. Director Jeannot Szwarc said in the Superman documentary “You Will Believe…” that Reeve’s involvement in this film would have given the feature higher credibility and he admitted he wished Reeve had made a contribution to the film’s production. A publicity photo of him as Superman, however, did appear as a poster in Lucy and Linda’s shared dorm room. “Lynn Stalmaster casting is actually on YouTube talking about casting the movie. He talks about narrowing it down to eight girls. He talks about how he wanted to take the same approach he did with Christopher Reeve for Superman, and had me come in. I think part of my having gone through Performing Arts High School, I was very bold. I had made a cape and a skirt. And I went in with glasses as Linda Lee. I was a little bit fearless. I don’t know if I would have had that if I hadn’t been through Performing Arts.” – Helen Slater.
