Featuring: the Hamilton & Olsen comedy team.

ONCE AGAIN,THE spotlight was on "Young Olsen" as this rather contrived and far ranging story called for Jimmy Olsen (Jack Larson) to have become a sort of amateur "professor" of Chemistry. Quite accidentally, Jimmy discovers an anti-gravity formula.

THE COMPLICATIONS INCLUDE: Editor Perry White's blessing in bankrolling the further research, keen interest by Uncle Sam in the person of Major blank (Tristram Coffin) and criminal interference by tough, yegg blank (Milton Frome).

THE STORY STRADDLES the action & crime story with more than just a touch of the frivolous and fanciful. Here is a typically 1950's Cold War/Crime tale; that were so commonplace during that period.

AS WITH SO many of the episodes during this season's output, WHAT GOES UP closes with a hardy CISCO KID-type group laugh.
