An extra rare letter answering inquiries about her personal life
Autograph Letter signed: "Phyllis Coates", 1 page, 8½x11. No place, no date, but pencil note (unknown hand) states: 4-12-67. To "Joan", in full: "Thank you for your nice letter. I'm not much for answering letters but decided to drop you a quick note with information you requested. 1. Yes. Married - have 3 children. Daughter 17, boy 10 - daughter 3½. 2. Haven't much time for hobbies - live at the beach & go to the mountains a lot. I'm 53½ & birthday is January 15 - 1927. 4. Who knows when I'll make another film, but am doing some advertising. Best to you". Phyllis Coates, born Gypsie Ann Evarts Stell in Wichita Falls, Texas in 1927, starred in many B-movies of the 1950s, often westerns and science fiction. After playing Lois Lane in Superman and the Mole Men (1951), she was the first to play Lois in the TV series, The Adventures of Superman (1952). Her numerous TV guest appearances in later years included the role of Lois Lane's mother in the TV series Lois and Clark (1994). When she wrote this letter, Coates had just appeared in Thomson's Ghost, and unsold comedy pilot broadcast as a TV movie in 1966. Her next film role would be as mother of title character Barbara Hershey in The Baby Maker (1970). Coates, by the way, shares the suspicion that TV Superman George Reeves was a murder victim, not a suicide. But she rejects the interpretation offered in the film Hollywoodland (2007). Filing holes at left edge. Toned and creased. Pencil note (unknown hand) at top edge. One horizontal mailing crease. Otherwise, fine condition.
