#art/#history - #inktober:
i don't claim to be an aficionado of the 'superman' franchise, but i'm a fan of her humanity. margot kidder was born in the outer reaches of canada's yellowknife in the northwest territories #otd in 1948. she spent nearly 50 years making films hither & yon, but ended up nearer her birthplace - in montana, working with 'billings for bernie'. her mum was a socialist & margot never lost touch with her gauchiste roots. seemingly indefatigable, she fought for the underdogs of the world - & said she preferred the company of dogs to humans - whilst battling her own health demons. by may of this year, she called it quits...on her own terms.
