Noel Neill, TV's Lois Lane, RIP at 95

Post by Ben » July 4th, 2016, 7:09 pm

I know this'll be a big one for Rand...like him I was lucky enough to meet Noel Neill, who played Lois Lane in the Kirk Alyn theatrical serials and on TV's Adventures Of Superman, at the Comic-Con where the founders of Animated Views met up in 2008.

I think he's managed to bump into her a couple of other times, too, but I remember her well and she was, to use a totally appropriate cliche, a super lady.

Yes, I sighed audibly when I read the news a few hours ago. She was my first Lois, even before seeing the comics, as I first watched the TV show when I was about 6. Superman has always meant a lot to me, and that show started it. It was a joy to meet her at Comic-Con, when I got to tell her she looked beautiful. She was a young gal of 87 then! So nice she took photos with us after the panel, too.

That panel was the first one of the Con for Ben and me. Remember how concerned we were about getting into it? We needn't have worried, as we were among the first to arrive. What a way to start a fabulous week of panels!

Never really watched the George Reeves Supes but she seemed so nice in the interviews. Sorry to hear she's gone. :(. And I actually thought she was pretty good in Superman Returns. (Sorry I know we're not supposed to mention that film here! Lol. :wink: )

Did I miss her in that movie? I know where Jimmy Olson was, but can't remember seeing her.

She played Gertrude, whom Lex swindled for her money in the opening scene of the movie.

Oh, yeah. That.

Even speaking as someone who still sees it as a "decent" film, SR certainly had some...interesting moments.
