Directed by series star George Reeves, this wild-and-woolly spoof of old time movie serials begins when a mysterious masked man (Michael Fox) shows up at the "Daily Planet" to inform Clark (Reeves), Lois (Noel Neill), Jimmy (Jack Larson) and Perry White (John Hamilton) that their days are numbered. The masked figure turns out to be a criminal who has a vendetta against the "Planet" staff, and who has adopted a disguise to whet their curiosity and lure them into an elaborate trap. As the episode hurtles to its climax, Clark is about to be immersed in a vat of boiling acid, Perry has been strapped to a whirring buzz-saw, Jimmy is locked in a car without brakes that is careening down a treacherous mountain road, and Lois is tied to the railroad tracks as a speeding locomotive bears down upon her!
