Below are links to QuickTime movies containing the opening credits to Superman the Movie and Superman II. To view the movie from your browser, click on the link. To download the movie to your computer, Option-Click (for Macintosh users) or Right-Click (for Windows users) on the link. Both higher and lower quality versions are available.

You should be using QuickTime 4 to view these movies. The high quality video uses Cinepak compression at 29fps and the audio is in 11kHz 8-bit mono format. The Superman I credits are of very mediocre quality, as it was video captured from a VHS copy of the widescreen laserdisc movie. The Superman II credits are of slightly better quality, as it is a first generation VHS copy from the widescreen presentation on AMC. Although I find the credits to Superman II inferior to those of the original, it does contain a nice recap of the first movie.
