Actress Louise Platt, 88, the last surviving passenger aboard the overland stage in "Stagecoach," the classic 1939 John Ford western, died of undisclosed causes Sept. 6 at a hospital in Greenport, N.Y.
Platt played Lucy Mallory, the pregnant wife of a cavalry officer, on the Lordsburg-bound coach driven by Andy Devine.
Her fellow passengers included John Wayne, Claire Trevor, Thomas Mitchell, Donald Meek, John Carradine and Berton Churchill.
The daughter of a Navy doctor, Platt was born in Stamford, Conn., and grew up in Annapolis, Md. She made her Broadway debut in 1936 and her film debut two years later.
