The best Lois Lane actor?

I grew up with the 1950s "Adventures of Superman" George Reeves TV show.
Recently re-watching all of them again for the umpteenth time still yielded some new revelations.
The BEST Lois Lane for me is none other than  Phyllis Coates, who only starred in the first season of the series.

She was the most pretty and talented. No one, believe me, no one, could scream like her and she was impulsive and spirited.
Too bad, she had already made a commitment for another show, before the second season of Superman came along. (In addition, too bad she's only in ":black and white" in these early shows.)

-Also in one of those early 1952 episodes, it was the "Monkey Mystery" or the "Broken Statues," that is the only one where you see a Daily Planet Newsroom. 
Otherwise, it was always as if Perry, Lois, Jimmy and Clark were about the only employees in that large Daily Planet building/operation.

-In addition, I noticed so clearly a "Stunt double" for George Reeves in the "Mind Machine" episode that it was unbelievable. So, you've got to not look too close -- especially on those early episodes. At least they had great background music.
