Synopsis
This first episode of a two-part story was excerpted from the theatrical feature Superman and the Oil Man. Reporters Clark Kent (George Reeves) and Lois Lane (Phyllis Coates) arrive in the town of Silsby, there to cover the drilling of the world's deepest oil well. Unfortunately, the digging has hit the center of the earth, disturbing a peaceful race of "Mole Men" who are forced to climb to the surface. The strange creatures' bizarre appearance and behavior brings out the worst in the local townsfolk, with bigoted Luke Benson (Jeff Corey) stirring up a mob to kill off the Mole Men--at which point Clark Kent decides it's time to go into full Superman mode! ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
