Superman and the Mole Men (1951)

Superman Mole Men George Reeves Phyllis CoatesGeorge Reeves stars as the Man of Steel in his first theatrical film. Well, it was technically a pilot movie to kick off the famous Superman television series. And Superman did star in serial adventures before, but I’m calling this his first official film.

Clark Kent and Phyllis Coates’ Lois Lane are sent to the small town of Silsby to cover the inauguration of world’s deepest oil well. The town get some new visitors when the well disturbs the home of some really odd creatures that have made their way to the surface.

Can Superman save the panicked citizens of Silsby from this emerging threat or are their fears completely misplaced?
