Storyline

Wealthy and spoiled Myra Van Clever (Gloria Talbott) hires Superman (George Reeves) to entertain at a party. What Myra doesn't know is that she has been manipulated into a criminal scheme cooked up by her guardian Jonas Rockwell (John Eldredge), who intends to use Superman as an unwitting courier for a set of counterfeit plates. Ultimately, Jonas tips his hand and locks Myra into a safe with reporters Jimmy Olsen (Jack Larson), Lois Lane (Noel Neill) and Clark Kent--who of course is Superman in disguise, but is unable to "transform" himself in full view of his fellow prisoners!

The Rich Have Feet of Clay
9 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A rich young woman comes to the Daily Planet to buy an ad. In it she says she wants to hire Superman. She is having a party for a diplomat. She is willing to take out a full page ad. Clark tells her Superman isn't interested in doing tricks at someone's call. When she offers to give money to charity, it is decided that Superman will follow through. The idea is to trick Superman into flying some counterfeiting plates back to their home. Being a good guy, he shows up and does several feats of strength. The ultimate idea is to get the big lunk to go all the way to Europe to deliver what appears to be a film canister when in reality it is a counterfeiting plate that has been stolen from the police archives. Jimmy and Lois, as usual, give up their freedom by going headlong into danger. This is a nicely done episode with a clever twist at the end.
