Jack Larson plays a dual role in this episode, as cub reporter Jimmy Olsen and two-bit crook Kid Collins. A group of investment racketeers kidnap Jimmy and plant his lookalike Collins in the "Daily Planet" building, the better to steal the evidence used by Clark Kent (George Reeves) for his series of racket-busting articles. Things get worse when Collins breaks into Clark's apartment and steals his Superman outfit--forcing Clark not only to track Collins down in his street clothes, but also to explain to Lois (Noel Neill) how the outfit came to be in his closet in the first place!
