Louisa Horton Hears a Death Knell

It's been a bad week for artists with famous relatives...

Louisa Horton Hill, a stage, film and television actress and former wife of "The Sting" director George Roy Hill, has died. She was 87. Horton, who used her own name professionally, died at Lillian Booth Actors' Fund Home in Englewood, N.J., on Friday, her daughter-in-law, Sandy McCormick Hill, said Tuesday.
Horton made her film debut in 1948's "All My Sons" opposite Burt Lancaster and Edward G. Robinson. Other movie credits include the 1976 film "Swashbuckler," starring James Earl Jones and Robert Shaw.
