Audrey totter

Audrey Totter, 95, a blond leading lady of 1940s film noir who starred as a tough-talking dame in “Lady in the Lake,” “The Set-Up” and “High Wall,” died Thursday at West Hills Hospital, said her daughter, Mea Lane. Totter, a Woodland Hills resident, had a stroke and suffered from congestive heart failure.

Although she had a relatively short film career, Totter created memorable movie moments while under contract with MGM from 1944 to the early ’50s. A former radio actress, she had a small part in “The Postman Always Rings Twice,” the 1946 movie based on James M. Cain’s pulp novel. She landed her breakthrough role in “Lady in the Lake,” the 1947 film version of Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe detective story.
