Death in Hollywood–Dall, John (Gay, Cardiac Arrest, 50)

John Dall was gay but claimed in interviews to have had a brief marriage in the early 1940s. No marriage certificate has come to light, and his death certificate records him as “never married.”

At a studio request, Hedda Hopper once linked his name with Jane Withers romantically.

According to music journalist Phil Milstein, at the time of his death, Dall had lapsed into alcoholism and was living with his partner, actor Clement Brace (died 1996).

Dall sustained serious fall while visiting London, in October 1970.

He died of cardiac arrest, a complication of myocarditis, at his home in Beverly Hills, California, on January 15, 1971, aged 50.
