Swamped by fan mail, Batman hires a secretary to handle all of it, who, unwittingly, causes the volume of mail to increase, thus hampering the Caped Crusader's war on crime. A threat from a forger, who has obtained an example of Batman's signature and who attempts to uncover Batman's true identity from it, has to be stopped in his tracks.
