Noel Neill as 'Lois Lane'

Movies: "Superman" (1948) and "Atom Man vs. Superman" (1950)

Noel Neill, 95, is the first actress to ever portray Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane on film. She tackled the part alongside Kirk Alyn in 1948's "Superman" and 1950's "Atom Man vs. Superman." In addition, Neill reprised the role on the television series "Adventures of Superman" in 1952 after the original leading actress, Phyllis Coates, left the series. Neill remained on the TV show until its end in 1958.
