HAZEL COURT, 82 Star of horror movies

Hazel Court, a British beauty who co-starred with the likes of Boris Karloff and Vincent Price in horror movies of the 1950s and '60s, has died. She was 82.

Ms. Court died Tuesday at her home near Lake Tahoe, Calif., of a heart attack, her daughter said Wednesday.

While she had a substantial acting career in England and on American TV, Ms. 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 a Roger Corman take on the classic Edgar Allan Poe poem.

Mr. Corman directed her in five movies.
