Continuity mistake: When Nuclear Man is destroying Metropolis, the same stuntman with a gabardine and a hat is seen close to a shop window, then a second later in the middle of the street and a second afterwards getting thrown through the air with a group of people. He looks and dress just like Clark Kent, guess it's his stand in doing some extra work.

Revealing mistake: Before Superman brings the cosmonaut safely to his spaceship the entrance door wiggles as if made of cardboard. There's no air in space and it's supposed to be a strong, solid structure.

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).
