Actor Francis Lederer, 100, best known for playing suave, continental characters in Hollywood movies of the '30s and '40s (including director Billy Wilder's "Midnight"), died Thursday at his home in Palm Springs, Calif. His later, extensive TV work included "Mission: Impossible" . . . Samuel Taylor, 87, who wrote the Broadway play "Sabrina Fair" (which became the Audrey Hepburn-Humphrey Bogart film "Sabrina" that was subsequently remade with Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond) and worked with Alfred Hitchcock on the script to "Vertigo," died in Maine on Friday.
