I believe a lot of the look is due to the soft filters used in the photography (the original Superman, shot at the same time, has a similar look). With this disc, however, there are some scenes that were patched together. For example, in the hotel scene where a screen test was used, there's a shot (maybe more than one) which is very blurry. I think that's due to them having to crop and blow up the footage to get a close-up out of it.
