A criminal known only as The Wrecker has blown up a train, an
airplane and a ship of the city's biggest train, airplane and shipping
company, respectively, and now he wants to blackmail the city. When the
city won't pay, the Wrecker threatens to blow up another ship, but luckily
Superman (George Reeves) is on the job and intercepts the explosive device
just in time, a remote controlled model plane carrying a bomb.
Following a hunch, Superman's alter ego, the reporter Clark Kent and
his colleagues Lois Lane (Noel Neill) and Jimmy Olsen (Jack Larson) try to
track down the Wrecker on a fairground ... and Lois and Jimmy are in luck
it seems, as they find a man (Denver Pyle) who seems to fulfill all the
criteria to be the wrecker, and he even partly confeses. They tie him up
and leave him alone for a mere couple of minutes - after which he turns up
dead, murdered ... which means the Wrecker must be someone else.
Superman invites the heads of the city's railroad company (Tom Powers),
airplane company (Pierre watkin) and shipping company (William Forrest)
for a meeting, and when a model plane just liek the one the Wrecker used
suddenly comes flying in the window and Mr. shipping company panics, he
has betrayed himself of being the Wrecker, and his motive was of course
collecting insurance money.
Ok crime drama, not on par with the many crime stories of season one of
Adventures of Superman, but not too bad overall.
