Mourning for an actress who has been in front of the camera since 1961 - known from "Back to the Future", the series "Fighting the Mafia" and from a role in "Titanic" she has now died at the age of 91.

Elsa Raven died on Tuesday in her home in Los Angeles, as her manager confirmed to the US industry magazine "Deadline".

The actress, who was born in Charleston, South Carolina in 1929, celebrated her 91st birthday in September.

Raven, whose real name was Elsa Rabinowitz, should be known to fans of "Back to the Future" as the "Save The Clock Tower Lady", the fundraiser for the clock.

In 1997 she played the true story based role of Ida Straus in "Titanic", who stayed on the sinking ship with her husband, the German-American businessman Isidor Straus, and died instead of claiming a place in one of the lifeboats.

In the late seventies and early eighties, she played various guest roles in "Quincy" episodes, and she also appeared several times in "Das A-Team".

From 1988 to 1990 Raven was in the series "Amen". In 17 episodes she played the role of Inga.

This was followed by ten episodes of "Fighting the Mafia" and, among other things, appearances in "The Prince of Bel-Air", "Seinfeld", "Behind the Moon Immediately Left" and in 1997 in "Titanic".

Between 1994 and 1999 Raven appeared in 39 episodes of the US soap "Zeit der Sehnsucht". She last appeared in films in 2011.
