Radio Lois Lane Dies

Lois Lane always gets her story!

Lois Lane always gets her story!

We lost a Lois Lane last week. Joan Alexander, 94, was the radio voice of Lois
Lane.   She also voiced Clark Kent’s partner and paramour in the Fleischer
shorts and in the 60’s Adventures of Superman animated series.

Bud Collyer, Alexander’s costar who was responsible for the voices of Kent and
Superman, once told an interviewer,  “Joan is one of those rare actresses —
especially in radio where you can’t be seen and have to depend entirely on voice
— who can go in on something cold and her instincts are so right as an actress
that without even a rehearsal or a read-through, she is right.”
