Storyline

Bad Luck Brannigan, a wrestler working for a crooked promoter, uses "the paralyzer" to cripple opponents. Clark Kent discovers the promoter has imprisoned an immigrant dubbed "the swami," who has extensive knowledge of the body's pressure points. In his Superman identity, Clark sees the immigrant. "The swami" instructs Superman in his techniques. As Clark, he then teaches a college wrestler -- who has publicly challenged Brannigan -- how to counter "the paralyzer." Written by Bill Koenig

A Logical Choice for the Fan Base
29 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The subject matter here was really appropriate to the time it appeared. In 1952, professional wrestling was one of the most popular events on television. It was on all the time, including film of past matches. So this probably appealed to the audiences they were trying to attract. The plot involves a wrestler who uses the "paralyzer" which when applied sends men to the hospital, unable to wrestle any more. A crooked promoter has engaged a man from India who understands pressure points and can teach his guy how to disable someone by simply pushing on a part of their body. This man is being kept in hiding and the crooks have a hole on him. He is doing this under duress but doesn't feel he has a choice. Perry White and Clark Kent have made it their goal to put this guy out of business. They enlist a national collegiate champion who challenges the big oaf. He observes and sees what is being done. But how does he stop him? Lois has a crush on this guy and doesn't want to see him harmed as the others have. You need to watch to see how the Man of Steel gets into the fray.
