Deaths Elsewhere

March 04, 2003

Horst Buchholz, 69, a German actor whose Hollywood credits include a role as a communist heartthrob in Billy Wilder's Cold War satire One, Two, Three, died yesterday.

Dubbed the James Dean of German films for the rebellious teens he played in the late 1950s, Mr. Buchholz moved to the United States and scored his first Hollywood hit with a role in The Magnificent Seven, the 1960 western.

Malcolm Kilduff, 75, the White House spokesman who gave a shocked world the first official word that President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated, died of respiratory failure yesterday in Beattyville, Ky.

Mr. Kilduff was an assistant White House press secretary in 1963 and serving as acting press secretary for the first time on a presidential trip when Kennedy went on a political fence-mending tour of Texas. After Kennedy was shot, Mr. Kilduff appeared at a hastily arranged hospital news conference to tell the world that the president was dead.
