Storyline

A scientist develops an advanced computer he dubs "Mr. Kelso." A criminal gains the confidence of the scientist and access to Mr. Kelso. The result: a series of perfectly timed bank robberies. Mr. Kelso is even able to come up with a strategy to defuse the threat from Superman. The computer suggests a bluff: sending a message to the Daily Planet saying Superman's secret identity will be exposed if he attempts to stop the criminals. Written by Bill Koenig

Sterling Holloway Steals the Show
3 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are so many crooks in Metropolis. They seem to be hiding behind every rock, with their fedoras and their expensive suits. In this one, a cheap hood is trying to sleep but the guy upstairs is making all kinds of noise It seems that the guy (character actor Sterling Holloway, sometimes known as the voice of Winnie the Pooh) has a super computer in his apartment. It is so sophisticated that all one needs to do is feed in a little information and ask a question, and a ticker tape gives the answer. The cheap hood tricks the weird scientist into finding out details about banks and potential dangers, using hypothetical scenarios, if a bank were robbed. Of course, the word goes out and a series of bank robberies occur. Even Superman is accounted for and at one time apprehends a man who has nothing in his satchel (supposedly filled with money). Once the events sink in on the good doctor, he enlists the help of others and turns the tables. Watch the ending. It is quite satisfying and there is some good humor in it.
