Noel Neill, the “film and television actress who played Lois Lane in 1940s ‘Superman’ movie serials and on television in the 1950s, died on Sunday at her home in Tucson,” reports The New York Times, adding “She was 95. Her death was confirmed by her biographer, Larry Ward.”

The story also says that “In 1948, Ms. Neill was cast opposite Kirk Alyn in 15 episodes of the movie serial ‘Superman,’ based on the comic books and radio show. Two years later, she reprised the role in the serial ‘Atom Man vs. Superman.’

“In 1952, when ‘Adventures of Superman’ was created for television, another actress, Phyllis Coates, was cast as Lois, along with George Reeves as Superman. But after one season, Ms. Coates left the show and Ms. Neill stepped into the role, where she remained until the series went off the air in 1958.”

Here’s a highlight reel of Neill as Lois Lane that we found on YouTube:
