Storyline

Season Four of The Adventures of Superman opens with a sentimental story about a racing filly named Joey. Formerly owned by a girl named Alice (Janine Perreau) and purchased by "The Daily Planet", Joey has the potential to be a winner, but refuses to race unless Alice is around. As this story plays itself out, Clark Kent (George Reeves)--otherwise known as Superman--goes after a band of criminals who've been spreading their corruptive influence at the racetrack.

Just Sort of Dull

Do you remember those girls from junior high school who could think of nothing but horses. Well, there's one in this episode. She is a horrible actress and talks about the horse, Joey, like he is her brother. Unfortunately, if Joey isn't sold (he is a race horse), her father is going to lose the farm, literally. Perry White, in a moment of weakness and sentimentality, buys the horse and has it run under the flag of the Daily Planet. It is being done for charity and publicity. The horse is entered in a big race and it disrupts the plans of a couple of gangsters (gangsters in a Superman episode?). They had things wrapped up until Joey showed up. Joey, being an emotional horse, goes into depression, drops to the ground and refuses to run until his former owner, the young woman in question, can come and raise his spirits. Lois and Jimmy go to pick her up but are turned away by one of the goons and now it's too late to get her there. Ya think there is another possibility? I just thought the whole thing was a maudlin exercise with little creativity.
