Synopsis for Gay Ghost: "The Thermo-Beam"

A Nazi secret agent (Von Stein), posing as a British secret agent (Roger Stone), smuggled a Polish scientist (Jan Vauk) into Britain, and took refuge at the Wallace Country Place. There they encountered the ghost of Keith Everet, posing as an American aviator (Charles Collins). Under dire coercion, Vauk was developing a Thermo-Beam for Von Stein, and his work was almost finished. In fact, he already had made a secret model of it, but with his family in Poland under threat by the Gestapo, he didn't dare use it. The Gay Ghost got around that problem by possessing Jan Vauk, and physically thrashing the spies. After two fights, both very one-sided, the Nazi agents attempted to flee, in an airplane, which was shot down by the pursuing Gay Ghost, using Vauk's secret weapon. He rescued the falling spies, and turned them over to the authorities.

Synopsis for Wildcat: "The Legacy of Big Bill Prim"

Before his death, Big Bill Prim arranges for his spinster sister Abigail to take over bossing his gang, and blackmails his gangsters into going along with it. The gang sells "protection insurance" to local merchants, who now become afraid of Abigail, who herself doesn't really grasp the full situation here.

Wildcat and his pal Stretch Skinner encounter this complicated mess, and Wildcat undertakes to put the gang out of business but not destroy Abigail's delusional high opinion of her late brother. His complicated scheme fails and she learns the sordid truth about the late Bill Prim. At a critical moment, she stands up to the gangsters, catches them by surprise, and enables Wildcat to get free from some ropes and beat up the gang. Afterward, Wildcat helps set up Abigail with a legitimate income from her late brother's front company, which is sold to some honest businessmen.
