Biography

At age 15, blonde British ingenue Jill Haworth was signed to a personal contract by producer/director Otto Preminger. She made an excellent impression in her first assignment for Preminger, Exodus (1960), and went on to co-star in the director's The Cardinal (1963) and In Harm's Way (1965). During the early 1960s, Haworth was one of the most "killable" leading ladies in show business; her characters seldom survived to the final fadeout, and many died in a most nasty fashion. In 1966, Jill Haworth created the part of Sally Bowles in the Broadway musical Cabaret, then returned to England to star in inexpensive horror mellers like It (1967) and The Mutations (1973). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
