At about 5 minutes, Superman pulls the door off the safe to rescue the cat. Actually, he would have used his X-ray vision to see and set the tumblers and just open the safe. That way the safe could still be used to protect its contents. See more »

It's Surprising He Had It as Long as He Did
7 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Jimmy goes to writer a story on an eccentric old lady who has left millions to the sustaining of a place for alley cats. She herself is overrun with them. When Jimmy accidentally locks one of them in a safe, he calls Superman. She thinks Jimmy rescued the cat and she gives him a million dollars. We know this is not going to be pretty. Of course, being the consummate compulsive idiot he is, he starts spending like there's not tomorrow. And, as any Superman episode must have, a couple of crooks start lusting after the money. He is tricked into trusting his newly hired butler. Clark warns Jimmy, but being an innocent, he accepts the word of the guy. He also purchase a boat, snowshoes, archery equipment, and a bunch of furniture for his new apartment. Interstingly, that million dollars in 1957 would probably be ten times that now, so he was incredibly rich. The conclusion is painful to watch, even if this is a fiction.
