Remembering Noel Neill and Lois Lane
Noel was most famous for playing Lois Lane in the two Superman movie serials, Superman in 1948 and in Atom Man vs. Superman in 1950 with Kirk Alyn as Superman...
...then coming back to the role starting with the first episode of season 2 of the Adventures of Superman, "Five Minutes To Doom" on September 18, 1953 and playing Lois until the end of the series, with "All That Glitters" on April 28, 1958, with George Reeves as Superman.
Gerard Christopher as Superboy called "Paranoia" in 1991. Noel even made it into Superman Returns in as the woman Kevin Spacey's Lex Luthor swindled out of her fortune (and made you want Brandon Routh's Superman to beat Lex that much more!).
Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL, where they dedicated a statue to her version of Lois Lane in 2005.
As you can see, Noel smiled a lot. She seemed a very happy person, as many people have been reporting since news of her passing. She embraced being a part of the Superman Family, as the family of fans embraced her.
Lois was the woman who stood behind Superman to help make him super, and Noel was the first woman to bring Lois Lane to life, and she was super!
