Jean Howard, 89, a one-time Ziegfeld girl and legendary Hollywood hostess, died in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. She had been the girlfriend of MGM chief Louis B. Mayer (who threatened to jump out of a Paris hotel window if she didn't marry him; she didn't, but he didn't, either), the wife of super-agent and producer Charles K. Feldman ("Casino Royale") and a recognized photographer. Her 1989 picture book, "Jean Howard's Hollywood," is still in print.
