Coates played the role of Lois during the first season of the series 1952-1953. Coates depiction showcased Lois' fiery side. She gave Lois a sharp tongue and a strong personality. She also gave the character a competitive streak having her compete with Clark Kent over getting the scoop on different stories. For the 1950's time period this version of Lois was ahead of its time showing that a beautiful woman can be fierce and determined at the same time.
An interesting sidenote is that the Adventures of Superman aired during the transition of Television from Black and White to Color. As a result some episodes are filmed in Black and White while the later ones have color to them.
That classic Superman line came straight from this series. ^_^
As a series the "Adventures of Superman: definitely left its mark on the title character. Some of the lines of the opening of this series ex. "Look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane" are still recognized as connected to character today over 60 years after the television series aired.
:-D Ok I think that's a note to end this segment. More Lois still to come as this tribute week to the first lady of comics continues.
Until the next entry...Up Up and Away!!
