Storyline

Future TV western star Chuck Connors appears in this classic episode as a gangly hillbilly who happens to be named Sylvester J. Superman. Arriving in Metropolis to seek his fortune, the clueless Sylvester answers a classified ad for the "real" Superman (George Reeves), and before long has been hired by a woman named Marge (Marjorie Owens) to deliver a lemon meringue pie to her fiancé Steve (Richard Garland), stationed at a remote Air Force weather base in Alaska. Meanwhile, gangster Leftover Louie (who else but Ben Welden?) has wagered $25,000 that he can convince his schoolmate Marge to bake him a fresh lemon meringue pie, even though she can't stand the sight of him. Inevitably, these two plot strands are intertwined, as a hopelessly confused Steve welcomes the vacuous Sylvester, a gun-toting Louie, and the honest-to-goodness Superman into his tiny snowbound shack!

The Beginning of a Mediocre Career
7 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two crooks make a bet. One has just been released (graduated) from prison. He gets into an argument with a cohort over who can produce the best lemon meringue pie. It will involve getting pies from an aunt and a former classmate. Enter Chuck Connors (later the Rifleman) with a mule. His last name is Superman, so the desk clerk believes he is "the" Superman. He ends up reading a want ad in the paper from a lady needing help. It turns out her fiancée is in Alaska and she has baked a pie for him and wants Superman to deliver it to a remote outpost. The hick sets out to deliver the pie while the gangster goes off in hot pursuit. It is comical what happens in Alaska with the young radioman feeling like he has moved into the Twilight Zone. A pretty silly episode but it has its moments.
