Synopsis for The Clock: "The Case of Piggy Dorn"

Suspected cop-killer Piggy Dorn gets free on bail, and sends his goons to scoop up crime witness Homer Tweed. The Clock and Pug arrive slightly too late to prevent this kidnapping but they trail the thugs to Piggy's waterfront hideout, then climb onto the roof and find a skylight. Piggy fails to bribe or frighten Homer into refusing to testify and reluctantly decides to have him whacked, so he directs his thug Slug to konk Tweed on the head and drop him into the harbor, where a swift current yanks him away. Clock & Pug drop in via the skylight, and the Clock keeps going, through the trapdoor into the river after Tweed, while Pug engages Piggy and his gang, but gets headkonked with a blackjack, and dumped into the water also. The swift current turns out to be the ebb tide, sweeping Pug and Tweed and the Clock out to sea; Tweed is still unconscious and our heroes drag him back to shore. They clamber onto a pier, and very luckily find some rope, just as Piggy and his last two henchmen zoom past in a speedboat, hoping to flee to South America. The Clock knots up a lasso and catches a cleat on the passing boat, yanking it to a sudden halt which dumps the bad guys in the ocean, then cuts the rope, allowing the speedboat to resume speeding away, minus the gang. The bad guys swim to shore, but barely make it out of the water before the Clock and Pug pummeled them into submission. Later on, Homer Tweed does indeed testify; Piggy is convicted of murder and the other two are convicted of kidnapping.
