Secret Agent (1943)

** (out of 4)

Seventeenth and final short in Paramount's series once again deals with WW2 issues as Clark Kent helps a female secret agent and allows himself to get kidnapped so that he can learn Nazi secrets. For the last Superman short they really decided to pretty much take him out of everything considering he has only one line of dialogue and doesn't show up until the final minute or two of the film. In reality this is a pretty straight WW2 action film as for the majority of the time we have the saboteurs constantly after the female secret agent and of course coming up just short. Once again we get some rather nice animation but all of that is lost with the rather weak story that never really pays off.
