Other mistake: When Lenny has the prison guards locked in the car and is putting the top up, the steering wheel is spinning but the front wheels aren't moving. The amount of revolutions of the steering wheel is mechanically impossible also.

More quotes from Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Trivia: Christopher Reeve said in his autobiography that he much preferred Richard Donner's approach rather than Sidney J. Furie's. He mentioned that if Donner had done the scene with Superman walking up to the big UN building, he would have shot on location of where that building in real life is, choreographed thousands of extras, had cars driving by on the street and cut to real shots of people gawking out of office windows. Instead, Furie shot at an industrial park in London with a giant matte painting, only a few extras, no buildings or cars and a couple of pigeons for added effect.

More trivia for Superman IV: The Quest for Peace

Question: I read that, according to Margot Kidder, when working on this movie, Christopher Reeve and Sidney J. Furie didn't get along at all. Is this true? If it is true, then what was the reason behind their feud in the first place?

Answer: There appears to be multiple reasons. They had creative differences, ultimately resulting in a poorly received movie. Kidder said Reeves, who co-wrote the story, had an inflated ego and clashed with Furie.
