About James Hill

He was a film producer in 1950s and 1960s Hollywood, where he often worked with Burt Lancaster, being part of the "Hecht-Hill-Lancaster" production company with Lancaster and Harold Hecht. However, he is probably best known for being the fifth (and final) husband of Rita Hayworth from 1958 to 1961.

He was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. Like Hayworth, he developed Alzheimer's disease. He died in Santa Monica, California.
