George Reeves plays a triple role in this episode, as reporter Clark Kent, Kent's alter ego Superman, and a lookalike gangster named Boulder. With the help of a plastic surgeon and an acting coach named Hamlet (Percy Helton), Boulder is able to impersonate Superman, committing a series of crimes in this guise in order to disgrace and discredit the real Man of Steel. The plan might have gone off without a hitch had not one of Boulder's cronies (George Chandler) decided to do harm to Clark's reporter pal Jimmy Olsen (Jack Larson). An uncredited Hayden Rorke appears as a psychiatrist counseling the confused Clark Kent: twelve years later, Rorke would hang out his shingle as Air Force psychiatrist Dr. Bellows on I Dream of Jeannie.
