Plot hole: The Russian cosmonaut is out in space singing Sinatra when he's knocked away. Later on, Superman appears from nowhere and saves him and says "you'll be safer singing here". First, Superman was nowhere near to know he was singing. Second of all, sound does not travel in space, super-hearing or not. So the whole comment is senseless.

Trivia

Near the end of the film, Superman gives a press conference in front of a bluish mirror-glass building which is meant to be the Daily Planet skyscraper in Metropolis (which we all know is New York, sort of). The shot is framed so you can only see the bottom of the building - necessary as it is only about 3 floors high, and is in fact the railway station in Milton keynes, England, about 400 yards from where I work. Even the crowd have a vaguely British look about them - presumably passers-by were recruited and stood there in their own clothes (this would matter less now - Brits look more American than they did in the Eighties).
