Steve Trevor flies to California to receive intelligence information about Japanese activity in South America. However Captain West, Steve's contact, is murdered before he can relay the information. The assassin captures Steve, taking him and the Holliday Girls as prisoners.

Synopsis for The Gay Ghost: "Sugo, Yakita, and Shimaka"

At night, three Japanese saboteurs are parachute-dropped near a U.S. city, assigned to destroy an experimental fighter-bomber. They encounter resistance, and hide in the city, in a museum, where by luck they meet up with a Nazi saboteur, working as a night watchman. They team up.

The next morning, at the city's airport, Lt. Charles Collins is assigned to make the test flight in the experimental plane. The Axis sabotage team uses trickery to get close to the plane, and the disguised German agent whacks Collins in the head with a rifle butt. They are surprised to find him dead rather than knocked out, but Charles Collins has actually been dead for months, and the Gay Ghost invisibly separates himself from the body, and scans the situation. The agents try to remote-detonate one of the fighter-bomber's bombs; the Gay Ghost adopts the bomb as his new body, and flies it to their hiding place, then chases them around the airfield. When he explodes it, the German agent is killed. The Gay Ghost invisibly follows the Japanese agents panicky sprint to their museum hideout, and has some fun scaring them by animating a mummy, then a statue, then a dinosaur skeleton, and chasing them around the museum. He leaves them with the police, then returns to the airfield, where a medic is examining Charles Collins' body, and pronouncing it dead. Everyone is very surprised when Collins gets back up, to make that day's test flight after all.
