Margot Kidder Biography
The film made branded Margot as a major talent, and in the following years she starred in a string of critically acclaimed pictures, such as Black Christmas (1974), The Great Waldo Pepper (1975), 92 in the Shade (1975) – directed by Thomas McGuane, who was also her husband for a brief period – and a somewhat prophetic tale of self-resurrection, The Reincarnation of Peter Proud (1975).
In 1983, Kidder produced and starred as Eliza Doolittle in a TV version of Pygmalion with Peter O’Toole. In the late 1980s, she appeared in introductions for the Discovery Channel’s “Best of the BBC” series of repackaged documentaries, among them Making of a Continent. She has also done extensive stage work, including The Vagina Monologues.
