Movie Info

En route to a humdrum assignment, reporter Clark Kent is caught in the crossfire between Nazi agents and a beautiful blonde American counterspy. The girl has a cache of valuable documents in her possession, and the Nazis are determined to prevent her from delivering the papers to Washington. Though captured by the enemy spies, Clark manages to burst full-force into his true identity as Superman, racing to the female agent's rescue as she faces certain death on a sabotaged bridge. Bud Collyer does not provide the voices of Clark Kent and Superman in this episode, which may explain why the "two" characters only have one line of dialogue between them (Some historian believe that this line was delivered by Sam Parker, who'd voiced the title role in Fleischer's Gulliver's Travels).

The title should say Secret Agent. The final animated short in this series. Another plot about WWII saboteurs. Nazi sympathizers try to stop a beautiful blonde agent who was undercover in their ranks from giving their info to the US government. So, Superman has a different damsel in distress to save other than Lois and the series ends patriotically with a salute to the American flag.

Clark switches places with a hot blonde federal agent to get caught by Nazi spies in order to learn their plans. It is more World War II propaganda from Famous studios and, in fact, their final installment in the Superman Theatrical shorts. I think its a shame that the series became such a propaganda machine...I like America too, but not like this. I preferred the shorts under Fleischer when they were more about Superman, and less about the American Way. But the series was fun while it lasted.
