Too tragic. To think that Superman would be paralyzed from falling off a horse. RIP.
Thanks for sharing David.Gorgon Heap said:A lot of you folks probably know this, but some may not, so I will share this little tidbit:
Christopher Reeve was good friends with a lot of the Muppet people, even before he was famous: Jim, Frank, Richard and Dave. In fact Reeve and the mother of his two elder children were particularly good friends with Frank Oz and the three spent much time together in England.
In fact, whenever Chris was around, he would help out on TMS, doing voices or carrying props.
This fact gets bandied around more than most: Chris carried one of the Japanese pole vaulters in the Bob Hope episode of TMS in '77.
He was one of the guest stars who not only was appropriately multitalented- he was funny, he was a fine pianist, and had a lovely singing voice- but was clearly having a ball (especially in Vet's Hospital )
Times like this, you gotta focus on the nice stuff you can remember about a person.
