Joe Seneca, an actor known for his work in movies about slavery, black leaders and human dignity, died Thursday in New York from an asthma attack. He never revealed his age, but his agent estimated he was in his late 70s.

Mr. Seneca's last movie was "A Time to Kill," the courtroom thriller based on John Grisham's novel. His first big film was "The Verdict," in which he played a medical expert. He also appeared in "Silverado," "Crossroads" and "Mississippi Masala."

Camilla Horn, 93, femme fatale in the heyday of the German screen, died Wednesday in Gilching, Germany. Ms. Horn became a hit with the 1925 film "Faust." Universal Pictures signed her, and she made "Tempest" and "Eternal Love" before returning to Germany.

Elizabeth Williams McDonald, 93, whose late husband founded the Chattanooga Free Press, died Thursday in Chattanooga, Tenn. She married Roy McDonald in 1923, 10 years before he started a shopper newspaper that became the Free Press. She was a member of the board of directors.
