'Superman' producer at hospital near Mexico City

A health official in Mexico says the producer of the Superman films of the 1970s and '80s is recovering at a hospital after being admitted in a state of disorientation and suffering facial and head injuries.

Ilya Salkind had been staying at a home near Mexico City and his friends reported him missing earlier this week.

Arturo Torres of the Morelos state medical office said Friday that the 63-year-old Salkind didn't have identification when he was admitted Sunday at a hospital in Cuernavaca.

Morelos Attorney General Luis Benitez Pedro Velez says Salkind was hurt while in Tepoztlan, a town about 55 miles south of Mexico City. It was unclear how he was injured.

Salkind produced "Superman" in 1978 and two sequels.
