Farewell to Margot

   Sad to hear today of the passing of actress Margot Kidder, 69, who had a distinguished career as an actor in movies and television, but is best known to comics fans as Lois Lane, paired with Christopher Reeve in four Superman films in the '70s and '80s.

   She was an excellent choice for the role, playing Lois as a tough, no-nonsense reporter who knew what she wanted and had the determination to overcome any obstacle. (I wasn't crazy about the "Lois can't spell" gag.)

   With her unique, sandy voice and an undeniable sex appeal (and great chemistry with Reeve), she was a lot of fun to watch, and she brought an original approach to the character.

   Sad to realize that we've now lost both stars of that classic film - and they were among the youngest actors in the cast! 

   Margot gave us lots of terrific performances along the way - sad to lose her far too soon.
