Identify and Connect

As earlier, if you get the individual clues but not the connect, do post in the comments section. It may help others work it out. All text is wiki-lifted :).

1.

2. At the Atlanta premiere of X (the clue), local promoters recruited blacks to dress up as slaves and sing in a "Negro choir" on the steps of a white-columned plantation mansion built for the event. Many black community leaders refused to participate, but a prominent Atlanta preacher A attended, and he brought his 10-year-old son, B, who sang that night in the choir. (A and B are irrelevant to the connect).

3. A is located in the city of Fairview, in the fictional Eagle State. Its appearance reflects the stereotypical view of American suburbia: perfectly manicured lawns, rows of comfortable houses and white picket fences. It is the main setting of X (the clue). (A is irrelevant to the connect).

Additional Clue (1 to 3 identified in the comments)

"We don't want to create embryos just for research. We want to rescue these cells from the garbage...I don't understand how you can be opposed to that. I don't."

The connect is Superman.
1. Fritz Lang's Metropolis was the inspiration for the city Metropolis in the Superman comics.
2. Clark Gable was one of the inspirations for the name Clark Kent, the other being Kent Taylor.
3. Teri Hatcher of Desperate Housewives played Lois Lane on 'Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman'.
4. The additional clue was a quote by Christopher Reeve, who played Superman on film, and in his later years was a campaigner for stem cell research.
