Noel Neill 'Lois Lane' At The SD Comic Con!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Comic Cons


Noel Neill  

'Lois Lane'

At The 2008 SDCC Comic Con International!

I had the pleasure of seeing Noel Neill at the last San Diego Comic Con International
in July 2008.

The following are some excerpts from notes that I took in between taking photographs
of her at the panel where she was the special guest.

Noel started her career singing at the Del Mar Racetrack in SoCal, which Bing Crosby
then owned!

Noel did 15 serials with Kirk Alyn. Those lasted a week or two to film.

After Noel's agent first contacted her that she would be Lois Lane, she went to a store and bought
a comic book to find out more about her role. "Comics were for boys" she said!

Noel never met Phyllis Coates, the other Lois Lane during the same time period!

Kellogg's advertised on the show so they had to keep the show 'clean'.

Noel started playing Lois Lane in the Adventures of Superman in the second season. The
director was a little rough on her. George Reeves spoke to the director and then everything

The scripts were all the same she said, "Only the names of the heavies were different!".

Noel has been doing conventions and programs for several years. She did the college shows
in the 1970's. Questions at that time were 'no holds barred'. She mentioned that she was asked
"Did you and George 'do it'!" She said no. He was so nice and so good.

Noel was shocked that Lois Lane had a baby and no husband  in the recent Superman movie that she
had a cameo in.

That brought up the subject of the film 'Hollywoodland'. Noel explained that she did not feel that
film gave an accurate account of George's life. The characters shown in the film were all dead. Since
she and Jack Larson were not dead, they were not used in the film, and the film's production
did what they wanted to do in showing George's life in the way that they did.

An ending question was asked, "How was it working with Kirk Alyn vs George Reeves?" Noel answered
"Kirk Alyn was a dancer, ballet dancer in New York. He wasn't as talented as George but a quick learner."

(continued from bottom of left column...)   Noel, who is very tiny in stature, commanded the program stage with her presence. It was a pleasure
to finally hear her talk in person. I came away with a better understanding of her and will enjoy my
viewing of the Adventures of Superman even more when I catch an episode now!
