Phyllis Kirk, the star of horror classic The House Of Wax, has died at the Motion Picture + Television Hospital in California. She was 79. The actress died on Thursday (19OCT06) from a post-cerebral aneurysm, according to her former publicist. Kirk shot to fame as a model in the 1940s before embarking on a Broadway stage career. She made her Hollywood debut after signing to Samuel Goldwyn Productions in OUR VERY OWN. As well as her scream queen role alongside Vincent Price in 1953's 3-D masterpiece House Of Wax, Kirk is also remembered as the screen wife of Peter Lawford in hit TV series The Thin Man. She ended her career as a publicist for TV network CBS and retired in 1992 to concentrate on her activism - she was an outspoken opponent of the death penalty.
