Hazel Court, who co-starred with Boris Karloff and Vincent Price in popular horror movies in the 1950s and ’60s, died Tuesday at her home near Lake Tahoe from a heart attack, according to her daughter, Sally Walsh, said Wednesday. Court was 82.
Court was perhaps best known for her work in such films as 1963’s The Raven. She co-starred with Price, Karloff and Peter Lorre in the Roger Corman take on the classic Edgar Allen Poe poem.
Corman also directed her in The Premature Burial, The Masque of the Red Death, The Curse of Frankenstein and Devil Girl From Mars. She also appeared in several of the low-budget Hammer Film Productions horror movies.
Court was born Feb. 10, 1926, in the English town of Sutton Coldfield.
