Storyline

Boulder, a thug, is recruited to participate in a scheme. Bouler undergoes plastic surgery to look like Superman and then is trained by a voice coach to sound like him. Wearing a Superman costume with a bullet-proof vest underneath, he intimidates merchants and others into giving up money. Yet, Boulder's boss has the bogus Superman donate the stolen money to charity. All of this causes great concern to Clark Kent, who's unsure whether he might be sleepwalking or not. Clark gets reassurance when he finds out the phony Superman makes an appearance while the reporter was elsewhere. Now, the real Superman intends to put an end to this caper. Written by Bill Koenig

Wow! Where Did They Get a Guy Who Looked Just Like George Reeves?
2 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

George Reeves plays a double role. He plays a thug who is about to have plastic surgery to make him look just like Superman. He also gets voice lessons to sell the whole package. Once there, he does robberies and then gives the proceeds to charity. Superman's credibility is suffering. What the crooks are doing is making people trust that his motives are good so they can set up a really big robbery, a two million dollar payoff from an armored car. Clark, who can be a bit neurotic at times, wonders whether he is committing these crimes in his sleep. Anyway, we all await the ultimate confrontation between the two Supermans. It was kind of fun to see George stretch himself a bit.
