The Adventures of Superman – “The Deserted Village”
Good example of a typical episode from the first season of The Adventures of Superman. All first season episodes were filmed in 1951, but not released for use on TV until 1953. In the original season, Lois Lane was played by Phyllis Coates. (In subsequent seasons, Lois Lane was played by Noel Neil.) The series ran throughout the 1950s. George Reeves (Clark Kent / Superman) allegedly committed suicide on June 16, 1959. After the first season, the show became progressively more geared toward children.
