35 Gorgeous Photos of Margot Kidder in the 1970s

Born 1948 in Yellowknife, Canadian-American actress Margot Kidder began her acting career in the 1960s, appearing in low-budget Canadian films and television series, before landing a lead role in Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx (1970). She then played twins in Brian De Palma’s cult thriller Sisters (1973), a sorority student in the slasher film Black Christmas (1974) and the titular character’s girlfriend in the drama The Great Waldo Pepper (1975), opposite Robert Redford.

In 1977, Kidder was cast as Lois Lane in Richard Donner’s Superman (1978), a role that established her as a mainstream actress. Her performance as Kathy Lutz in the blockbuster horror film The Amityville Horror (1979) gained her further mainstream exposure, after which she went on to reprise her role as Lois Lane in Superman II, III, and IV (1980–1987).

The 1990s were marked by significant health problems for Kidder: In 1990 she sustained serious injuries in a car accident that left her temporarily paralyzed, and she later had a highly-publicized manic episode and nervous breakdown in 1996 stemming from bipolar disorder. By the 2000s she maintained steady work in independent films and television, with guest-starring roles in Smallville, Brothers & Sisters, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and The L Word, and appeared in a 2002 Off-Broadway production of The Vagina Monologues. In 2015, she won a Daytime Emmy Award for her performance in the children’s television series R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour.

Kidder died in 2018, at her home in Livingston, Montana, aged 69, in what was later ruled a suicide by alcohol and drug overdose. Take a look at these gorgeous photos to see the beauty of young Margot Kidder in the 1970s.
