Dabbs Greer essays a dual role in this episode as Texas philanthropist Mr. Pebbles and his criminal lookalike Dan Dobey. When Pebbles offers to donate one of his silver mines to the Metropolis Children's Camp Fund in the name of Superman (George Reeves), Dobey kidnaps Pebbles and takes his place, the better to get his mitts on the mine's riches himself. Somehow or other Lois (Noel Neill) and Jimmy (Jack Larson) likewise get themselves kidnapped, meaning that Superman's going to have to pull off a triple-header. And speaking of heads, there's a metal plate in Dobey's skull that will play an important role in the episode's climax.
