    She was absolutely glorious in On the Town, one of my favorite of the old movie musicals. Betty Garrett was a treasure of a comedic character actress.

    I am a 'Seinfeld' devotee; I still check in everyday.......I feel like I should take a day off for a death in the family.

    Joanne Siegel, Widow of Superman Co-Creator Jerry Siegel, Dies at 93 - Heat Vision

    Joanne Siegel, Widow of Superman Co-Creator Jerry Siegel, Dies at 93

    She served as the model for Superman's love interest Lois Lane.


    February 15 1:46 AM 2/15/2011 by THR staff


    Joanne Siegel, the widow of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel who also served as the model for Superman's love interest Lois Lane, died Monday at age 93.

    Joanne Siegel met her future husband and fellow Superman co-creator Joe Shuster in Cleveland during the 1930s when she was a teen, according to Cleveland's Plain Dealer. Shuster contacted her after she placed an ad in the Plain Dealer offering to model, but she didn't realize that she would become the inspiration for Lois Lane.

    There reportedly have been many Cleveland women claiming they were the basis for Lois Lane, but Jerry Siegel insisted it was Joanne, while admitting that some of the other women's traits may have influenced the character as well.


    Early on, Jerry Siegel and Shuster tried to sell Superman to newspaper syndicates but failed. They then turned to DC Comics, which bought the character, who made his first appearance in Action Comics No. 1 in 1938.

    Ten years later, Jerry Siegel wed Joanne following his divorce from Bella Siegel.

    But Jerry Siegel struggled in his career throughout the late 1950s and '60s, finding it hard to come by work as a comic-book writer. In the late 1970s, as Warner Bros. was gearing up to release a Superman movie, the Siegels convinced DC Comics to give the Superman creators a lifelong stipend.

    Jerry Siegel died in 1999. Three years later, the Siegel and Shuster families filed for partial ownership of the character. In 2008, a federal judge ruled that the families do own a large share of Superman, but the litigation against Warner Bros. is ongoing.

    The Siegels' daughter, Laura Siegel Larson, is making the funeral arrangements her mother.

    Duke Snider, a mainstay of the Brooklyn Dodgers outfield, has passed away at age 84. For those of you who remember him, he was a superb fielder and an outstanding batsman. RIP.

    I remember him well. Although I'm a lifelong Yankees fans, I can always appreciate the talent of athletes from completing teams. He was loved and respected in NYC>

    Jane Russell has passed away at 89.
    I'm not good at bringing articles over, so hopefully someone else will.
    Jane was a sex symbol with Marilyn Monroe in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" back when actresses had real figures, busts, legs & shapes, rather than the stick figures we look at now. No wonder eating disorders are so prevalent now.
    R.I.P Jane. You were "hot" when it really was.
