Determined to figure out the connection between Clark Kent and Superman, Lois Lane engages the services of private detective Homer Garrity (Elisha Cook Jr., cast decidedly against type). Unfortunately, both Lois and Homer are kidnapped by a trio of crooks, whereupon cub reporter Jimmy Olsen (Jack Larson) attempts to rescue them by impersonating a private eye--homburg, trenchcoat, Bogart-like lisp and all. Not surprisingly, Jimmy soon finds himself in as much trouble as the two kidnapees, and it is Superman (George Reeves) who ends up rescuing everybody (with a little assistance from the judo-savvy Garrity!)
