Noel Neill (1920-2016)

She was a newspaperman's daughter in real life...
Kirk Alyn (Clark Kent/Superman) and Noel Neill (Lois Lane) in Superman (1948)
...and she ended up playing the most famous newspaperwoman in fiction on both the movie and TV screens!
Noel Neill (Lois Lane) and George Reeeves (Clark Kent/Superman) in The Adventures of Superman (1950s)
I had the pleasure of meeting Ms Neill in Cleveland, at the 1988 International Superman Expo (celebrating Superman's 50th Anniversary), and she was absolutely delightful and gracious, the very model of what we used to call, in the pre-PC days, a "classy lady".
Trivia: Noel and Phyllis Coates (who was the first TV Lois Lane, both appeared in in the B-movie Rocket Attack U.S.A. (1952), but had no scenes together.
