Ingrid Pitt, the star of the Hammer horror flicks The Vampire Lovers (1970) and Countess Dracula (1971), has died at a South London hospital. The apparent cause of death was heart failure. Pitt was 73.

Among the Polish-born Pitt’s other movie credits are the World War II adventure drama Where Eagles Dare (1969), opposite Clint Eastwood and Richard Burton; Peter Duffell’s omnibus horror movie The House That Dripped Blood (1971); and Robin Hardy’s horror classic The Wicker Man (1973).

In addition to an autobiography titled Life’s a Scream, Pitt penned three volumes of horror trivia, among them The Ingrid Pitt Book of Murder, Torture and Depravity.
