: "Superman and the Mole Men" (1951)
Like George Reeves, Phyllis Coates played Lois Lane in 1951’s “Superman and the Mole Men” and was tapped for the role for the television series “Adventures of Superman.” Unlike Reeves, Coates only lasted with the show for one season before handing off the part to Noel Neill. Coates, now 86, continued to act for several decades before retiring from acting. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
