STUDIO
CITY—Actor Elliott Reid, who famously starred in classic Hollywood films such as “Gentleman Prefer Blondes” passed away of heart failure at an assisted living facility on Friday, June 21. He was 93.

 

Reid was famous for starring in films that spanned multiple genres and media including film, television, radio, as well as stage.
