Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
As chapter three of Officer 444 reveals, the body dumped into the pit was not our hero (Ben Wilson), who instead masqueraded as The Frog to protect Gloria Grey (Neva Gerber). "I think you're horrid to fool me that way," comes Gloria's ungrateful response. Everyone's attention now turns to the sinister Dr. Samuel Blakley (Al Ferguson), who is in possession of the only vial of Haverlyite in existence, stolen, as a title tells us, "from its slain discoverer." Gloria, whose curiosity gets the better of her, is captured by The Vulture (Ruth Royce) and Dago Frank (Frank Baker) and forced to watch Dr. Blakley administer Haverlyite to a meek young man. The transformation is astounding, the youngster instantly turning into a rude and obnoxious tyrant. Officer "444" goes to investigate the strange goings-on and is promptly overcome by gas fumes.
