"The long-running adventure serial...was one of the hallmarks of the Golden Age of radio....Superman was never able to fly as high on television as he had for an adventure-filled decade in radio's theater of the imagination." (Anthony Tollin, "Superman on Radio")
It ranks rather high as the quality of the restored production is amazing.
Superman/Clark Kent as the versatility of the actor Bud Collier really shines through.
The narrator and the other actors all had an air of suspense in their voices, gave the episode real drama and intensity.
I rooted for the little guy in this story Jimmy Olsen.
It was a good stand alone episode, A welcome refreshing change form the series stories that I have also heard of this title.
