Patricia Marand and
Her Understudy, Marilyne Mason

In the Broadway production of "It's a Bird It's a Plane It's Superman©", Lois Lane was beautifully played by renowned actress Patricia Marand. She had previously starred opposite Jack Cassidy (Max Mencken) in the Broadway production Wish You Were Here. Every star has an understudy. And in 1966, a TV special entitled Standys and Understudies '66 included Marilyne Mason, who played "Rosalie, the High School Girl" "It's a Bird It's a Plane It's Superman©" while also serving as Ms. Marand's understudy.

Matthew Rizzuto, a member of Bob's Facebook page, found a copy of Standys and Understudies '66 on YouTube. We've interlaced parts of Ms. Marand's and Ms. Mason's performances so that you can see them both. Just one note: Patricia Marand never flew on the Broadway stage!
