A beautiful blonde (who is never named) is running away from some men who are shooting at her. Clark Kent intervenes and is knocked out, captured and tied up by the men. It seems the woman is a secret agent--she has a list of saboteurs and their evil plans. She must get the list to Washington. The police try to escort her but they are also attacked by the saboteurs. The woman escapes but becomes trapped on a bridge about to be crushed. Will Superman find out and save her?
This is barely a Superman cartoon. Lois Lane is nowhere to be found (but that blonde sounds a LOT like her). It plays more like a WWII drama with plenty of violent shootouts (I was really surprised to see a cop shot down out of his motorcycle) and action. Superman only pops up at the last few minutes to save the day. But the action more than makes up for his absence. Pretty good. A 6.
