Superman II and the Moon Zero 2 connection.

There it is.
It took me a moment to spot this and its not something that I've ever read documented anywhere else but that there space helmet from Superman II, as worn by the cosmonaut killed by Zod, appears to be one of the seven created a decade earlier for the Hammer sci-fi  movie Moon Zero 2.

As previous blogs have revealed, these helmets have had quite a career, often in the company of Gerry Anderson's UFO helmets, and though they had a lot of activity in the early 70's...
and one as yet unblogged appearance in 1975, the Superman guest-spot seems to be the latest thus far.  Don't you just know there's more out there waiting to be rediscovered.
