Fade Out: Ingrid Pitt 1937-2010

Sad news to report today for fans of classic horror. Ingrid Pitt, most well known for her work in the Hammer films of the 60s and 70s passed on in the early morning of November 23rd due to heart problems.

The beautiful actress got her start in 1964  and continue working in genre films into 2008. Most recognizable either nude or with a pair of fangs in her mouth (sometimes both), Pitt also starred alongside Clint Eastwood in the World War II actioner Where Eagles Dare.

While many of you may not be familiar with her work, she had a devoted following that lead to tattoos and busts of her likeness being created. If you’ve got a few minutes, just do an image search for her, which will hopefully prompt you to carve out 90 minutes and take a look at one of her films. Our thoughts are with her family, of course.
