Noel Neill turns 94

Post by testy on Tue Nov 25, 2014 9:21 pm


Who is Noel Neill, she is the lady that played Lois Lane in the Superman series on TV way back in the 50's.
She became the second actress to play Lois lane after Phyllis Coates left the series for other work. Neill played the role for 5 seasons and was ready to forfill another season but it was never to be because of the sudden death (suicide) of the star of the show George Reeves (superman).

modern forensics have proven George Reeves accidently shot himself, actually i've been watching the series in recent weeks & it is interesting that the early series was more of an adult show & the latter series evolved into a younger person show.......in season 2 the show titled ''The man who could read minds'' would be the perfect way to commit burglaries if you could do it in real life, also on the same disc are two that i like in ''beware the wrecker'' with Denver Pyle in what would have to be close to his first role (when i saw the credits, i went back & paused the film & no way known i could pick him as Denver Pyle), back to Noel she played Lois Lane in the Superman serials that they had at the movies as the first show before intermission & then the main film would start she worked with Kirk Alyn for those & as you can read on wiki she ranked number 2 in pinups (posters) behind Betty Grable .......i reckon she would have been one of Lees' pinups too

i'll be watching another couple of episodes tonight

& as they say up in the sky there's a bird, NO it's a plane, NO it's SUPERMANssshhhhhooossssshhhhhhhhhssssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhh
