Superman agrees to sacrifice his powers to start a relationship with Lois Lane, unaware that three Kryptonian criminals he inadvertently released are conquering Earth.
Though she holds a cigarette briefly in one scene, Lois Lane is never shown smoking in the Donner cut of the film.
I ask you now to pronounce judgment on those accused. On this... this mindless aberration, whose only means of expression are wanton violence and destruction; on the woman Ursa, whose perversions and unreasoning hatred of all mankind have threatened...
When Superman finds the green crystal in the rubble of the control panel, it is a neon light in close-ups, then it turns into a green glow stick in the wide shots.
Since the making of this film in the late 1970s, a greater awareness has developed regarding the cruelty to animals in connection with the fur business, and the health risks associated with smoking and second hand smoke. Therefore, I do not condone the use of tobacco and fur products as depicted in this film. -Richard Donner
