Celebrity biographer Charles Higham dies at 81
Biographer Charles Higham, who wrote about Errol Flynn and other celebrities, dies at age 81
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Celebrity biographer Charles Higham, who wrote about the lives of Lucille Ball, Errol Flynn, Katharine Hepburn, Howard Hughes and others, has died in Los Angeles at age 81.

Friend Todd McCarthy tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/KkEJw3 ) that Higham died of an apparently heart attack April 21 at his Los Angeles home.

Higham was the author of dozens of biographies, many of them sensational tomes detailing political and sexual intrigue.



In 1980's "Errol Flynn: The Untold Story," Higham wrote that the matinee idol was a Nazi spy.

Flynn's ex-wife Nora Eddington Black denounced the allegation, writing the Times that Higham lacked documented proof.

Higham defended the book, but he told the New York Times that he had no documents saying Flynn was a Nazi agent.
