Stamp it as "dated" - kind of fun and silly.
3 February 1999 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Had the thrill of seeing "Stamp Day for Superman" at a comic convention in 1986 with my two buddies Marc and Craig. Silliest damn Superman film I ever saw and all we did was laugh for years afterwards on how we wasted 45 minutes out of the day to see this silly flick. It is neat though. From what I remember, Supes buys war bonds or fights some evil madmen who are against the u.s. postal service. See it if you can, cause you'll never find it again -- not that I've been looking, but never saw another filming of it since 1986. How about a 6/10 just for "effort" and rarity of this short, campy flick.
