CUERNAVACA, Mexico – The producer of the Superman films of the 1970s and '80s has been released from a Mexican hospital where he was treated for head injuries.

Arturo Torres of the Morelos state medical office says Ilya Salkind left the hospital in Cuernavaca with family over the weekend.

Torres said late Sunday that Salkind was in good condition.

Salkind had been staying at a home near Mexico City and friends reported him missing last week.

Torres says the 63-year-old Salkind didn't have identification when he was admitted to the hospital.

Morelos Attorney General Pedro Benitez says Salkind was hurt in Tepoztlan, south of Mexico City. It was unclear how he was injured.

Salkind produced "Superman" in 1978 and two sequels.
