Someone - who later turns out to be a crook by the name of Marden (Tristram Cofin) - is cheap and cheesy buying plaster statues in every antique shop in town and has his sidekick Dorn (Phillip Pine) smash them right there on the spot ... which, while being no crime in any sense, is of course enough to make reporters Clark Kent (George Reeves) and Lois Lane (Phyllis Coates) suspicious - so suspicious that Lois eventually starts smashing plaster statues herself until she finds a key ... upon which she is kidnapped by Marden and Dorn.

Good thing Kent and police inspector Henderson (Robert Shayne) have since found out that Marden is behind all this, have taken in his accomplice Pete (Wade Crosby) for questioning, and learn that Lois is about to be flown to Marden's secret hideout - and as his alter ego Superman, Clark stops Marden's plane just in time and manages to free Lois. Thing is, Marden manages to escape, and he has Lois' key.

Clark figures that all the little things Marden and his men have found in the plaster statues are part of a puzzle, a puzzle that if solved leads to the very PO box teh key Lois has found belongs to - and of course, Clark manages to solve the puzzle. And the next day, when Marden wants to pick up whatever-it-is from the PO box, inspector Henderson is on site soon enough with a pair of handcuffs.

But what is whatever-it-is ?

The world's largest ruby, that's what.

 


Simplistic but nevertheless entertaining half-hour crime-drama, in which wisely enough, Clark Kent's Superman alter ego plays only a small role (as in many of the early episodes of Adventures of Superman) and that concentrates on the story rather than on superhuman deeds - and the story is quite ok even if it's not 100 percent believable (like, why would the crooks smash the statues right in the shop when all this causes is attention, and so on and so forth).
