Dana Wynter, the elegant British actress best known for her role in the original 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers,' has died at the age of 79.

Wynter died Thursday of congestive heart failure at Ojai Valley Community Hospital's Continuing Care Center, said her son, Mark Bautzer.

In the 1956 sci-fi classic, she played Becky Driscoll, love interest of Kevin McCarthy's Dr. Miles Bennell in the tale of a small town being insidiously taken over by aliens who are able to replicate humans.
