The Supergirl film was released in 1984. The movie was nominated for three Academy Awards. Helen Slater played Supergirl, and had to train three hours every day for three months, so she could do the outdoor flying. The outdoor flying suspended Helen by wires from a tower crane. The movie was intended to be the first in a lengthy series, but due to the lack of success at the box office the series was cancelled. Dolly Parton was first offered the role of Selena the witch for seven million dollars, but declined stating she couldn’t play a witch for no amount of money. The Supergirl movie only grossed fourteen million, which made the least amount of money in the Superman series.
