Storyline

After rescuing a cat owned by eccentric Mrs. Peabody (Elizabeth Patterson), cub reporter Jimmy Olsen (Jack Larson) is given a reward--of one million dollars! Much to the dismay of his friends Clark (George Reeves) and Lois (Noel Neill), Jimmy begins throwing away his money on useless creature comforts, including a butler named Herbert (Leonard Carey), who turns out to be in cahoots with con man Stacy Tracey (Richard Reeves). First attempting to defraud Jimmy, Stracy ends up locking the neophyte millionaire and Lois in a safe--whereupon the pair is forced to incinerate "Olsen's millions" in order to create smoke signals that will summon Superman to their rescue.

A Tale Of A 'Brainless Boy'
22 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jimmy Olsen gets a reporter's assignment: go interview the millionaire old lady who takes care of all many cats. The next thing you know, Jimmy is credited (even though Superman did it) saving the life of one of her felines. In gratitude, she gives Olsen a million dollars.

Of course, the money goes straight to Jimmy's head. Within a day, he has bought a new apartment, furniture, tons of things he wouldn't need and hired a "gentleman's gentleman" - Herbert, a butler, played comically by Leonard Carey

Herbert, to no one's surprise, turns out to be part of gang that wants to swindle the cub reporter out of his money. They do so, and trap our naive friend and Lois Lane in a vault-like room. Without giving away anymore, let's just say Jimmy learns about how best to use his money.

Best line the episode: Lois Lane, when first confronted by the crooks, asks them: "How could take advantage of a brainless boy?" For some reason, Olsen is offended at that statement.
