"Some Kind of Hero" (1982)
Before the two starred together in the third "Superman" movie, Kidder played a love interest to Richard Pryor in "Some Kind of Hero," where Pryor attempted to take a slightly more dramatic turn as a Vietnam vet turned hero who is quickly forgotten after his homecoming. In an interview with The AV Club
, Kidder talked up Pryor as one of the nicest people she'd worked with and a great actor who was disappointed about being forced to make the film funnier. "He was smart and funny and sexy, and you wanted to take care of him. He was wonderful. Oh gosh," Kidder said. "I remember when we were doing the love scene in 'Some Kind of Hero,' we got in bed nervously. Then he looked up, and it was very genuine, and he went, [Gasps.] Richard Pryor's in bed with Lois Lane!"
