Superman – Golden Homing Pigeon. 440410. Actually this episode seems to start at the mid show commercial.
Jimmy Olson has been captured, and given his options as how he will be killed. The deadline is ticking and Jimmy is being threatened with being dinner for a snarling black panther. Meanwhile, Clark Kent assumes his identity as Superman, and releases a homing pigeon. Will the bird lead the man of steel to Jimmy?
Barton, the keeper of the big cat shoots when Superman crashes in, and shields the bullets with the raging panther. Jimmy is safe, and Barton is flown to jail. In the Daily Planet, Jimmy relates his tale to Lois, and Clark, once he arrives. Clark fills in details about the role of the homing pigeon, and what seems to be the missing first part of the story.
The three make plans to attend the circus. Later at the circus, the gang comment on the acrobats, and other performers. The show begins, and as Jimmy and Lois make their commentary, there’s a sudden accident on the high wire.
Commercial time. The terrible accident is soon identified as intentional by Clark. What does he mean? What did his sharp eyes see? Find out tomorrow in the next episode. If only there was a next episode in existence.
