The motivating factor of The Missing Corpse is a feud between rival newspapermen Kruger (J. Edward Bromberg) and McDonald (Paul Guilfoyle). While Kruger tries to play fair, McDonald, a mob-connected slimeball who uses his publication for blackmailing purposes, does not. Before long, McDonald is murdered and his corpse is deposited in the back of Kruger's car. With the help of his fast-talking chauffeur Hogan (Frank Jenks), Kruger tries to dispose of the body to avoid being implicated in the crime, but the body just won't stay missing (despite the film's title). The revelation of the actual killer will undoubtedly amuse fans of the Superman television series.
