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

5 July 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Noel Neill, the actress who played Lois Lane for nearly 80 episodes on Adventures of Superman, died on July 3. She was 95. In a Facebook post from her friend and biographer Larry Ward, he wrote of her work as Lois on Superman, “After years of playing bit parts in bad films and great roles in forgotten films, she finally found her niche. As a teenager she knew all about the newspaper business from her father and she had also actually written for Women's Wear Daily in the late 1930s, so it was a role she believed she was born to play. And as she would admit in interviews later in life, she simply played herself.” Interestingly, this was not Neill’s first time as the intrepid reporter. She played Lois in the late 1940s in the movie-serial Superman, alongside Kirk Alyn. Curiously, however she was not the original Lois Lane on the »

Noel Neill, Lois Lane in Adventures of Superman, Passes Away at 95

5 July 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The movie and TV community has lost another one of its beloved stars over the holiday weekend, with Noel Neill, the first actress ever to play Lois Lane, passing away at the age of 95, in Tuscon, Arizona. Her manager and biographer Larry Ward confirmed the actress' death through Facebook last night. Here's what he had to say in a statement below.

"Noel truly was Lois Lane, and for many of us, she was the first working woman seen on television. Few of her fans actually knew her real name, almost always simply calling her "Lois" to which she would unfailing answer with a bright smile and a kind word. It was more than a role to her."

Variety reports that Noel Neill was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and that she originally wanted to be a journalist like her father, who was the editor of a local newspaper. In 1940, she was »

Noel Neill, Superman's Lois Lane, Dead At Age 95

Noel Neill with George Reeves in "The Adventures of Superman".

 

By Lee Pfeiffer

Yet another pop culture legend of the Baby Boomer era has left us. Actress Noel Neill, who played Superman's love interest Lois Lane, has died at age 95. Neill began her career in Hollywood with bit roles in mainstream films. She was chosen to play Lois Lane, the intrepid female reporter for the Daily Planet newspaper of the fictional city Metropolis that Superman and his alter-ego Clark Kent called home. As colleagues on the newspaper, Lois and Clark were friends but it was always Superman that stole her heart. One of the more amusing aspects of the Superman legend is that Lois Lane, a top reporter, could never affirm her suspicions that Clark actually was Superman simply because his "disguise" consisted of a pair of eyeglasses. Nevertheless, the Lois Lane character was unusual for the era because »

Ed Catto: Paul Kupperberg Looks Up Into the Sky!

7 March 2016 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I have a friend who loved opera and music growing up, and now she sings in the chorus for the Metropolitan Opera. There’s something energizing when you witness someone leverage their passion and turn it into a wonderful and fulfilling career.

And my friend, comic writer Paul Kupperberg, is exactly that kind of person.

As a kid back in 1976, Paul was buying comics at My Friend’s Bookstore in Flatbush, Brooklyn. “My ideal book store,” Kupperberg explained. “Carts out front, loaded with cheap books. The counter on the right had all the Golden Age issues. Superman #1 was $100. They used the Howard Rogofsky price list. Behind the counter there were boxes on the shelves. A magical place – we’d go on weekends. We would even work there.”

Even though Superman was his favorite, Kupperberg has had a long experience with the character, Supergirl. “I didn’t come to the Supergirl strip until the sixties, »

‘Luther the Geek’ Review (Vinegar Syndrome)

5 March 2016 12:47 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Carlton WilliamsTom BrittinghamKaren MauriseEdward TerryJoan RothStacy Haiduk, Thomas Mils, Jerry Clarke | Written and Directed by Carlton J. Albright

“A movie with a fowl bite!”

When Luther (Carlton Williams, in his only role) was a young boy, he witnessed a group of rowdy locals egging on the local Geek (Tom Brittingham, also in his only role) to bite the head off a chicken. This combined with him getting his teeth accidentally knocked out by one of said locals in the ruckus leads young Luther to develop a taste for blood. Naturally, this turns him in to a bloodthirsty psycho and paves the way for a life of crime. After serving 20 years and thanks to prison board member Mrs. Butler (Karen Maurise, Dark Skies), a much older and balder Luther (Edward Terry, The Children) is set free. Armed with a set of homemade metal teeth, Luther »

Tom Welling Discusses Smallville And Supergirl

12 February 2016 11:38 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since the late 1980’s, Superman and characters related to him have not stayed off the small screen for very long. The Adventures of Superboy was swiftly followed by Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, which eventually had its red boots filled by Smallville, a show that many say paved the way for Supergirl, among other superhero shows.

Smallville’s influence on the current renaissance of superhero shows is not lost on Tom Welling, who played Clark Kent on that very series for ten mighty seasons. He’s also aware that many of the same crew members from his series carried over to some shows viewers currently can’t get enough of, including directorial powerhouse Glen Winter.

Here’s what Welling had to say regarding those subjects in a recent interview with BirthMoviesDeath:

“You know, the success of Smallville is directly correlated to The Flash or Arrow – that genre that »
