In this opening episode of the sixth and final season of The Adventures of Superman), reporters Lois (Noel Neill) and Jimmy (Jack Larson) are assigned to cover the opening of a museum exhibit. Alas, within minutes the two newshounds are kidnapped by a trio of elderly men in armor, members of the Society for the Preservation of Knighthood and Dragons. It turns out that most of the members of this organization are harmless save for "Sir Arthur" (Marshall Bradford), who intends to bump off his fellow knights in order to collect on a tontine-like insurance policy. Disguising himself as one of the knights, Superman--armor and all--flies to the rescue of Lois and Jimmy, but this time even he may not be able to save the day. This was the series' first episode to debut on the ABC network, rather than in syndication.
