This episode was apparently inspired by the vintage Lon Chaney Sr. movie vehicle The Unholy Three. A trio of circus performers--magician Harmon the Great (Sid Tomack), "human fly" Pallini (Rick Vallin) and strong man Atlas (Buddy Baer)--combine their talents in order to commit a string of robberies. The logic behind this scheme is that the crimes will appear to have been impossible to pull off by any single person. . .except Superman (George Reeves). Reluctantly taking the Man of Steel into custody, Inspector Henderson (Robert Shayne) "accidentally" allows him to escape so that he can solve the case and round up the real perpetrators.
