Margot Kidder has passed away.
Margot Kidder, best known to most (at least me anyways) as Lois Lane from the 1978 Superman movie has died at 69 years old. According to Time, Kidder passed away at her home in Livingston, Montana.
Noel Neill was the definitive Lois Lane to me up until Superman in 1978, while Phyllis Coates had also did a nice job, Noel seemed more like the comic book version I had grown up with. While I had watched the black and white Superman re-runs a million times, Kidder’s performance was so good she soon became the definitive version to me. Apparently the comic book writers felt the same way and the four color version soon seemed to act more in the vein of the big screen version.
