The Adventures of Superman (film #2 in the Who Killed TV’s Superman? section of TVParty). [Category: Early Film & TV]

Incredibly sexist and patronizing scene from “The Adventures of Superman,” featuring Lois Lane subbing for the advice columnist and asking Superman for help. Everybody treats her like a bratty child, including Superman himself. It ends with a couple of her co-workers speculating on why a pretty girl like her isn’t married. At least TV workplaces would eventually get somewhat better than this.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ****.
