One of the most popular, and most iconic series from the early days of television was “The Adventures of Superman,” which ran from 1952 to 1958.
George Reeves was Superman / Clark Kent. Jack Larson played young photographer Jimmy Olson, and Noel Neill was reporter Lois Lane.
But, like so many TV stars, Neill saw her career take a new and unexpected path, and not necessarily the path she had planned.
I met her in 2003. She was still very popular on the campus and classic-TV circuit, and she was then promoting an authorized biography called “Truth, Justice and the American Way.”
So here now, from 2003, Noel Neill.
Noel Neill died in 2016. She was 95.
