  • Lois is particularly wearisome and arrogant in this episode.

    4.0
    Lois Lane has the unattractive assignment of writing a story on a working coal mine. A cave-in occurs while she is on site and Pops the miner is trapped. A professional rescue team quickly goes into action to try to save the man.



    Lois, who is on her first ever visit to the mine, decides that she is more qualified to mount a rescue operation than the team of pros. She sneaks into the dangerous mine against the foreman's explicit orders. She locates Pops, of course, but only makes matters very, very much worse by causing a second cave-in. Now both she and the miner are trapped and their air supply is cut off!



    Throughout the mining disaster, Clark Kent keeps just missing the news and is unaware of the predicament. Lois' arrogance and refusal to cooperate have by now made the viewer hope that Clark remains in the dark and Lois gets what she deserves. Will she? Or will Superman intervene in time?moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The Daily Planet edition with the Rope Burglar headline Clark Kent reads (and thus misses the Extra on Lois's mine peril) was a leftover prop from the episode "The Stolen Costume", which was produced before this (though airing after it.)

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (1)

    • The story in this episode and in Action Comics #4 are very much the same except that in the comic book Clark Kent disguises himself as a coal miner instead of putting on the superman outfit and there was no Lois Lane that needed saved
