A troubled soul at times. But was a decent actress that never seemed to be in that much. I suspect her mental health may have caused issues for her career?
Just checked imdb 135 acting credits!?! Well I am surprised.. I think I've only ever really seen her in the Superman films, Black Christmas, 92 in the Shade and The Amityville Horror. Obviously she will have been in other stuff I've seen, but I cannot remember off hand.
If I remember correctly her Bipolar Disorder went undiagnosed for a long time so her "oddness" was blamed on problems with various substances and she didn't get the help she needed for quite some time. If you read about her life it's a wonder she lasted as long as she did. She must have been a strong and tough lady.
I am not that big a fan of the Reeve Superman films but she was the perfect Lois Lane for his interpretation of the iconic Kryptonian.
Superman was one of the first films I saw at the cinema and whilst I don't like superhero films, I have always had a soft spot for the Christopher Reeve Superman films and Lois Lane/Margot Kidder was a huge part of them.
I remember going to a Collectormania with some guy who wanted her autograph a few years back and I kid you not she came onto him!!! I don't think she would have if she'd got a whiff of his breath though! She was telling him that the whole Amityville story was bunk and just made up! Strangely he wasn't very excited by her drawing him closer either! JB
