The Canadian-born star, famed for her work in Russ Meyer's "sexploitation" films, passed away on Saturday, according to her "The Double-D Avenger" co-star Kitten Natividad.
Natividad writes in a post on her Facebook page, "I lost my dear friend Haji... I Love you and miss you so so much... RIP."
Haji, who was born Cerlet Catton, worked as an exotic dancer before she found fame in Meyer's low-budget films, which also included 1965's "Motorpsycho," "Good Morning and... Goodbye!" in 1967, and 1975's "Supervixens." Meyer reportedly picked her for his projects after spotting her dancing in a topless bar in California.
She also appeared in 1970's "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls," which was written by late movie critic Roger Ebert. Haji moved away from acting in her later years, but returned to the spotlight in 2001's "The Double-D Avenger" and 2003's "Killer Drag Queens on Dope."
