Home Celebrity Marta Heflin Dies at 68, Favorite of Robert Altman, Friend of Al...

No one seems to know much about what happened, but actress Marta Heflin died on September 18th. She was 68. Someone put a paid obit in the New York Times but I guess no one bothered to make a real announcement. Heflin was a favorite of late legendary director Robert Altman. She was also a great friend (and I’m not sure but I think long ago ex girlfriend) of Al Pacino. Heflin was always invited to any Pacino opening and treated like a VIP. Her father, Martin Heflin, was a famous PR man. Her mother, Julia Heflin, was a rabble rousing journalist. Uncle Van Heflin, of course, was a famous actor. And aunt Frances Heflin was beloved by viewers of “All My Children” as Mona Kane, mother of Susan Lucci’s Erica Kane. She will be sorely missed.
