Terence Young, 79, who directed the first, second and fourth of the James Bond movies, died of a heart attack in France Wednesday. Mixing sex, violence, and offbeat humor against expensive sets and exotic locations, his first Bond movie, "Dr. No," was a box office success and proved a winning formula for the films that followed. Starring Sean Connery as the --ing British secret agent 007, it was released in 1962. He also directed "From Russia With Love" and "Thunderball."

Catharine L. Wright Menninger, 91, widow of Dr. William C. Menninger and a trustee of the Menninger Foundation, died Tuesday in Topeka, Kan. The world-famous psychiatric institute, founded in 1925, later became the Menninger Clinic, then the Menninger Foundation and now uses just Menninger for its corporate name.

Nicky Hopkins, 50, a pianist who played on some of the most popular songs recorded by the Rolling Stones, Beatles and other groups, died Tuesday in Nashville, Tenn. He suffered from abdominal and heart trouble. He also worked with The Who and was a keyboard player for the Jefferson Airplane when the group appeared at Woodstock in 1969.
