(Bruce Weber’s article appeared in The New York Times, 2/25.)

Haila Stoddard, an actress who had a long career on the stage and on television and who as a producer brought the works of Noël Coward, James Thurber and Harold Pinter to Broadway, died Monday at her home in Weston, Conn. She was 97.

The cause was cardiopulmonary arrest, said her son, Christopher Kirkland.

Ms. Stoddard’s varied and colorful life in show business, which included radio serials, regional theater, Broadway, television drama and soap operas, brought her semifame, semifortune and a lot of fun.
