A production-used clapperboard from Richard Donner's 1978 comic-book adventure Superman. The clapperboard's production title is listed as "SUPERMAN" with "R. Donner" as the director and "A. Thomson" as the cameraman.
This wood clapperboard is painted black with a metal hinge and sections for the production name, director, camera, slate, take number, and date distinguished with white paint. Several pieces of tape are affixed on either side from production, including three on the "Camera B" side marked for exterior shots on "Aug. 14, '78" with model photographer Les Dear as the day's cameraman.
The clapperboard exhibits some faded paint, rust, and wood chipping from handling and age, but it remains in good overall condition.
