The 'Queen of scream' Hazel Court died today in Lake Tahoe Nevada. Hazel was a British actress and appears in some of the Hammer Studios horror movies, and also the American International Pictures Poe movies directed by Roger Corman. A great beauty, she appears with Vincent Price on Super 8mm in the CinemaScope feature 'Masque of the Red Death', still available new from Derann.

Hi Paul, There was only a little coverage of Hazel Court's passing in the British media. 'Masque.. is my favourite film of the Corman series; Hazel Court's screen presence was a lot stronger than that of Jane Asher (just my opinion). regards, Mal

Sad to hear that the British beauty Hazel Court died.Loved her in Curse of Frankenstein,and of course in the Corman/A.I.P movies.. The one i liked was premature burial,with Ray Milland.We can always look back on her movies and remember her..Andy.
