Eva Marie Saint is Back!!!

Academy Award Winner Eva Marie Saint Is Back as as Clark Kent's adoptive mother in director Bryan Singer's much-anticipated revival of the original comic book superhero franchise, "Superman Returns"

Played one of most famous female leads in movie history, opposite Marlon Brando in On the Waterfront (1954). She certainly brought "real acting" in a time when melodrama still ran rampant in the industry. Who can forget her memorable argument scene with Brando when she says, "I didn't say I don't love you, I said I want you to get out." Eva Marie Saint is still going strong with her work. She takes the fact that she's part of film history in her stride.

She was well-served by the gripping drug-addiction drama, "A Hatful of Rain" (1957) and her cool intelligence made for a very suitable Hitchcock heroine opposite Cary Grant in "North by Northwest" (1959). After a fourteen year absence, Saint returned to features as Tom Hanks' mother in "Nothing in Common" (1986). Nine years later, she was in the cast of the as-yet unreleased film "Mariette in Ecstasy".
