WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Dimitra Arliss, who played assassin Loretta Salino in the classic, "The Sting," has died in Woodland Hills, Calif., a hospital spokesman said.

Jaime Larkin, spokesman for the Motion Picture and Television Fund Hospital, said Arliss was 79 when she died Thursday of complications from a stroke.

Arliss was born Oct. 23, 1932, in Lorain, Ohio and began her acting career in Chicago at the Goodman Theatre. She racked up many television credits including roles on "Dallas," Rich Man, Poor Man," and "Quincy," but her "breakout" role was as assassin Loretta Salino in the 1973 Paul Newman, Robert Redford classic, "The Sting."

She also provided the Armor Computer voice in the two-part 1994 Iron Man episode "The Origin Of Iron Man," BigCartoonNews.com reported.

She leaves a sister.
