In Memoriam: Noel Neill

The world's most famous girl reporter, Lois Lane, was most famously played by Noel Neill in two serials and a TV series that has passed into our cultural history.

Noel Neill died over the weekend at the age of 95. Though she rarely worked as an actress after the series ended in the 1950s, a victim of type-casting, she never spoke ill of her experiences on the show, regarding her co-stars George Reeves and Jack Larson as friends.

Like many comics fans of my generation, I mourn her loss.
