    Margot Kidder, the actress best known for her role as Lois Lane opposite Christopher Reeve’s Clark Kent in 1978’s “Superman” and its three sequels, has died at the age of 69.

    The actress died at her home on Sunday, according to Franzen-Davis Funeral Home in Livingston, Montana. Born in Canada, Kidder first broke out opposite Gene Wilder in “Quackser Fortune Has a Cousin in the Bronx” in 1970.

    Notable roles outside of Lois Lane, which she played four times, included Brian De Palma’s earliest notable work “Sisters” in 1972, the first true slasher film in 1975’s “Black Christmas,” Robert Redford’s “The Great Waldo Pepper,” 1979’s iconic “The Amityville Horror,” and she served as narrator of the “Wonderful Wizard of Oz” 1980s cartoons.

    Though she never had much big success on screen in the past thirty years, Kidder was steadily working and appeared in several smaller films and shows almost every year between 1969-2017.

    R.I.P.

    The definitive Lois Lane?

    I would say yes.

    Ah, the narrator of the English dub of my favorite adaptation of the Oz books. R.I.P. Margot Kidder.
