A pair of turbaned Middle Eastern diplomats named Abdul (Ted Hecht) and Ali (Jack Reitzen)--the sort of comic-opera characters who finish each other's sentences--are convinced that reporter Lois Lane (Noel Neill) is the reincarnation of the legendary Princess Nephroditis of Baldad. Normally, Lois would be flattered by the attention, but unfortunately tradition dictates that the "Princess" be sealed up in a tomb in order to fulfill an ancient prophecy--and equally unfortunately, Jimmy Olsen (Jack Larson) is also slated for the same treatment! This episode is a particular favorite of Superman buffs because of the unusually revealing outfits worn by series star Noel Neill--which of course have absolutely no effect on Superman (George Reeves), who is not called the "Man of Steel" for nothing.
