Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Phillips Tead makes his second appearance in the role of eccentric inventor Professor Pepperwinkle. This time, the old duffer has created a machine that converts human beings into electric energy so that they can be instantly telephoned to any location in the world. A gang of crooks steal the machine and use it to establish alibis for a series of crimes--and when reporters Lois (Noel Neill) and Jimmy (Jack Larson) catch up with the crooks, the gang leader promptly "telephones" the duo to Alaska! Looks like another job for Superman (George Reeves)--or at least a competent telephone repairman.
