For nearly 20 years Lana Clarkson was the typical struggling actress and model in Hollywood appearing in a multitude of forgettable films such as Deathstalker, Brainstorm, Barbarian Queen and, of course, Amazon Women on the Moon. As she turned 40 and the jobs started to dry up, she took a part-time job as a hostess at the House of Blues in Hollywood where she found overnight fame as the murder victim of record producer and certified psychotic Phil Spector.

In The End

Phil Spector died due to complications from COVID-19 on January 16, 2021 in prison. His passing barely registered in the media.

age: 49

cause_of_death: Homicide - blunt force trauma

claim_to_fame: Show Business

best_know_for: Robert Edward Crane was an actor, drummer, radio personality, and disc jockey known for starring in the CBS television comedy Hogan's Heroes about the hilarious high jinks of prisoners in a concentration camp during WW II. In the early 1960s, he moved from radio into acting, eventually landing the lead role of Colonel Robert Hogan in Hogan's Heroes. The series aired from 1965 to 1971, and Crane received two Emmy Award nominations. Crane's career declined after Hogan's Heroes. He became frustrated with the bit parts he was offered such as The Love Boat, Ellery Queen, Police Woman and the short-lived The Bob Crane Show. Crane returned to performing in dinner theaters when his body was found bludgeoned to death in his Scottsdale, Arizona, apartment while on tour in June 1978 for a dinner theater production of Beginner's Luck. The murder remains officially unsolved. His previously uncontroversial public image suffered due to the suspicious nature of his death and posthumous revelations about his personal life.
