Chain Saw Massacre and Eaten Alive Actress Dead at 64

7 August 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ actress Marilyn Burns dead at 64 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre actress Marilyn Burns, the one cast member who manages to survive Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s low-budget 1974 horror cult classic, was found dead on Tuesday, August 4, 2014, at her home in the Houston area. According to her manager, "she was found unresponsive by a family member." The cause of death remains unclear. Burns (born on July 5, 1950, in Erie, Pennsylvania) was 64. The Houston-raised Marilyn Burns began appearing in films in the early ’70s. She had a bit part in Robert Altman’s Houston-filmed Brewster McCloud (1970), starring Bud Cort, Sally Kellerman, and Shelley Duvall, and was later cast in a supporting role in Sidney Lumet’s Austin-shot 1974 drama Lovin’ Molly; however, Burns was ultimately replaced by Susan Sarandon, reportedly remaining in the production as a stand-in for both Sarandon and Blythe Danner. Also in 1974, Marilyn Burns landed the »

Marilyn Burns, Star of Texas Chainsaw Massacre Dead at 65

6 August 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Fay Wray may get the prize as the best screamer in moviedom, but nobody’s screams seemed as intense and as real and as horrified as Marilyn Burns as Sally Hardesty, the ‘last girl’ from the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

If ever there was an actress in horror who will be immortalized for a single role, it’s gotta be Ms Burns. I just saw Texas Chainsaw Massacre in its new souped-up incarnation this past weekend when it was screened at The Hi-Pointe as part of Late Night Grindhouse and was still impressed at what an unnerving performance director Tobe Hooper coaxed from her for the film. Her post-chainsaw career was almost non-existent (Hooper’s follow-up Eaten Alive, the TV movie of Helter Skelter and a couple of cameos here and there were about it). I met her a few times on the horror con circuit and she was a »

Marilyn Burns, Who Starred in ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre,’ Dies at 65

5 August 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marilyn Burns, one of the original “scream queens” who starred in Tobe Hooper’s original 1974 “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” died Tuesday in Texas. She was 65 and was found dead in her home near Houston.

Texas Chainsaw” was her first lead role; in it she played teenager Sally Hardesty, who goes with her brother and friends to the cemetery where her grandfather is buried and ends up as the only survivor of an encounter with the insane family led by chainsaw-wielding Leatherface.

Burns was born in Erie, Penn., raised in Texas and had small parts in films including Robert Altman’s “Brewster McCloud” while she was still in high school, and George Roy Hill’s “The Great Waldo Pepper.”

But she was most known for horror films including Hooper’s 1977 “Eaten Alive,” about an insane hotel proprietor who feeds his guests to his pet alligator. Among her other films were “Kiss Daddy Goodbye” and “Future-Kill. »
