Silver Screen legend Jean Hale dead at 82

Actress Jean Hall, known for work in the classic “Batman” television series and films like “In Like Flint” has died of natural causes at the age of 82 in Santa Monica, California.

Flint was likely best known for her role in the 1967 film “In Like Flint” starring alongside Oscar winning actor James Coburn and Lee Cobb.

She also appeared on television shows such as “Perry Mason,” “Hawaii Five-O” and others.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hall was married to Emmy winner Dabney Coleman. The article said “the two met while studying acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York — from 1961 until their 1984 divorce.”

The report also shared that Hale was born in Salt Lake City on Dec. 27, 1938, and raised in Darien, Connecticut. Her father, Stanton G. Hale, was a major corporate leader of Mormon heritage, and great-grandfather Solomon Hale owned a ranch with Brigham Young.

Hall attended the University of Utah, majoring in ballet, and later attended Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York.

In addition to acting, Hall was a model and later began her own production company.

The Hollywood Reporter also shared that at the time of her death, Hale was working on a script called “Being Jeannie” based on the true story of a woman who impersonated her in the 1960s, married 10 men across Texas and Oklahoma and stole their money.

She leaves behind three surviving children.
