The Lo-Down on LOIS LANE! Noel Neill! 1965 DC Comics Special Feature! Superman!

This is one of those oddball little gems you come across in Silver Age comics! From a 1965 issue of LOIS LANE, here is a fun and informative special feature on actress Noel Neill, who portrayed Lois on the 1950s ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN TV show! Sure, it sounds a bit like a pre-fab "puff piece" from a pandering publicity department, but, in those days especially, it did give curious fans a rare glimpse inside Hollywood and TV! Also: Didja know that, not only Noel, but many of the cast and crew of SUPERMAN had reporting or newspaper backgrounds and experience? Click to enlarge!

It's also interesting to note that this piece appeared well into the syndicated
rerun showings of ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, years after the original show
 ceased filming new episodes!
