Synopsis for "The Bombshell of the Boulevards"

Lois Lane investigates a story involving a foreign ambassador named Count Armand de Foix. She learns that the Count is courting a silver screen actress named Lois La Flamme, and decides to impersonate La Flamme in order to get close to the ambassador.

Superman meanwhile discovers Lois' ruse and decides to intervene as Clark Kent. Without letting on that he is aware of Lois' disguise, he professes his undying love to Lois La Flamme. Count Armand de Foix overhears Clark issuing a proposal of marriage to his alleged mistress. Lois rejects Clark's offer but announces that she is in fact in love with Superman.

Count Armand refuses to brook any competition and challenges Superman to a duel. The count's bullets bounce harmlessly off of the Man of Steel's chest, and appear to ricochet, striking him in the chest. Lois suddenly removes her disguise exposing her undercover identity to Superman. Superman confesses that he was aware of the ruse and staged the faux duel with the count as a means of getting back at her.
