Black Cat #13 is a fanciful story about an evil Hollywood movie producer (Mafia?) who is so intent on his picture winning the Academy Awards that he deliberately launches a concerted effort to have Cecil P DePille's movie sabotaged to prevent it from being completed in time to compete with his for the Oscar. He secretly causes accidents to happen, until the Black Cat (aka Linda Turner, who is starring in DePille's movie) goes to his hideaway to investigate. She overpowers his bodyguard, but ends up surrendering when a loaded gun is pointed at her back. She is tied up and about to have her mask removed, when a loud "boom" on the roof causes the malevolents to stop for a moment and go to investigate (she can be seen below bound on the floor, but smiling because she knows they will leave her for awhile, giving her time to escape). As soon as they leave, she removes a hot andiron from the fireplace and uses it to burn her ropes and get free. When the baddies return she uses her martial arts skills to subdue them and put them under arrest, peace and justice being restored to movieland. In the pics below we see her held at gun point, tied up, and struggling to burn her bonds off. When Lee Elias does the art, she is at her best, as she is here. A special page honoring the gifted illustrator was included on page 3 of this issue (see below). There is also a pic from her "Judo Demo" page showing her hand-gagged as she tells how to counteract it (the Judo Demo page appeared in every issue).
