Reporters Clark Kent and Lois Lane arrive in the small town of Silsby to witness the drilling of the world's deepest oil well. The drill, however, has penetrated the underground home of a race of small, furry people who then come to the surface at night to look around. The fact that they glow in the dark scares the townfolk, who form a mob, led by the vicious Luke Benson, intent on killing the strange people. Only Superman has a chance to prevent this tragedy.

This was Jeff Corey's final role before he was blacklisted by the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1951. His next on screen role was in the short film Inside Magoo (1960) nine years later. See more »
When the Mole Men are atop the dam, they are in a small rectangular area of the screen in a different shade of black than the night sky around them, revealing that they were just "superimposed" into the shot. See more »

Superman and the Mole Men is quite possibly Superman's toughest adventures ever.
Lois Lane and Clark Kent are sent to Silsby, home of the world's deepest oil well. While there, some radioactive mole men come up through the oil well and explore the town. Jeff Corey and many other townspeople try to dispose of the invading mole men. Can Superman change the people's ways in time to save the mole men? Can Superman warn the people in time about the radioactive danger the mole men bring?
In my opinion, Superman and the Mole Men is a very intelligent, well-written and well-acted movie. Even though we only get to see Superman fly once briefly, It still makes a great Superman adventure. A must see for anyone.
