Underground World, The (1943)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

The son of an explorer takes Lois and Clark to the Henderson Caves where the son's father was last seen decades ago. Once there the son and Lois are kidnapped by some type of eagle creatures and it's up to Superman to save the day. This film is certainly better than the last few in the series but that's not saying too much. Once again we're treated to some very good animation and some nice creatures, which makes this stand out more than some of the previous ones. What the eagle things are doing is never explained but that's probably for the best as the writing in these shorts hasn't been the greatest. There's some nice action scenes and seeing Superman fight these things was fun.
