<LAURENCE HARVEY DIES OF CANCER>

THE film star Laurence Harvey, who played Joe Lampton in the film "Room at the Top", has died at his Hampstead, London home.

Mr. Harvey, 45, had been ill with cancer for about 18 months and in May had surgery and cobalt ray treatment in Los Angeles.

During his sickness at home, tended by his wife, the model Pauline Stone, he was visited by many stars, including Elizabeth Taylor, Rex Harrison, and his close friend, the playwright Wolf Mankowitz.

Mr. Harvey had continued to work from his home, preparing a script for a film he planned for shooting early next year. There will be a private cremation at Golders Green, North London, November 28.

The Harveys were married in Hollywood last New Year's Eve and have a young daughter, Domino.
