Hazel Court, R.I.P.

I wanted to post this last week but time got away from me:

Hazel Court, an English beauty who co-starred with the likes of Boris Karloff and Vincent Price in "The Raven" and other popular horror movies of the 1950s and '60s, has died. She was 82.

Court died Tuesday at her home near Lake Tahoe from a heart attack, her daughter, Sally Walsh of Los Angeles, said Wednesday.

Roger Corman directed Hazel Court in five movies, turning Ms. Court into one of the classic "scream queens" of that era. She co-starred with the likes of Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Vincent Price, Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre and Jack Nicholson.

Read more at IHT, The Telegraph or The Times. Luckily for us, she finished her autobiography which is on sale now.
