Storyline

The Daily Planet plans to give Dan Grayson an award for being citizen of the year. Grayson is a dedicated family man, active in community groups and a loyal employee of a fur company. He also a former convict, something he's managed to keep hidden in his new life. That all changes when a criminal from Grayson's past blackmails him, wanting Grayson's help on a robbery of the fur company. Unsittingly, Grayson has already provided one boost. Grayson accidentally locked himself in fur company's vault, which requires Superman to get him out. The vault can't be repaired for days, something that will help the criminals. Clark Kent attempts to help Grayson but the former convict is implicated when the criminals rob the fur company without his help. Grayson tracks down the criminals but is at their mercy. Now, Superman must find Grayson in time. Written by Bill Koenig

Goofs

After Superman has pulled the door off the fur vault and left it leaning against the wall, it is obviously beginning to fall forward as he leaves the shot. Following the shot of Superman taking off out the window, it returns to the previous shot but with the vault door safely leaning against the wall. See more »

Where's the Beaver?
1 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This moralistic offering stars Hugh Beaumont, Ward Cleaver from "Leave It to Beaver." He becomes the victim of a blackmailer. It seems that Hugh was in prison for participating in an armed burglary (he went along with some friends, thinking it was for a joyride), serving three years. Now he has become a humanitarian, earning Metropolis's man of the year. He works for a fur company, has a nice nuclear family which is not aware of his history. The blackmailer wants him to help set up a robbery or he will inform the family and the boss. When his little boy asks Clark Kent not to put his father back in jail, the father confesses to Clark. The heist takes place without Hugh's participation other than providing a key. He is fired and disgraced, but Superman is now enlisted in efforts to clear his name. This is another episode that makes a point about people deserving second chances. It's an OK episode..
