Jill Banner's early life was somewhat nomadic. Her father died when she was 2, and her mother moved from Washington to South Dakota and Iowa before settling in Glendale, California. Jill attended the Hollywood Professional School (one of her classmates was Peggy Lipton). Her debut film, Spider Baby or, The Maddest Story Ever Told (1968), was shot in 1964 but not released until 1968. When the film finally came out she received rave reviews for her performance as one of a pair of crazed sisters in this dark tale of cannibalism and incest. Between the shooting of the film and its release, Banner did a few films and much TV work. She was regularly used by producer/director Jack Webb (I) in his police shows "Dragnet 1967" (1967) and "Adam-12" (1968), often playing a blissed-out hippie. In the 1970s she soured on the Hollywood life and moved to New Mexico, where she sold real estate. After a few years, though, she returned to California to try to resume her career. On August 7, 1982, she was driving on the Ventura Freeway, between the Tujunga and Laurel Canyon Blvd. off-ramps, when her car was hit by a truck whose driver was drunk. Not wearing a seat belt, she was ejected from the car and hit her head on the center divider. She went into a coma, and died at a local hospital, never having come out of it. At the time of her death she was employed by Marlon Brando and was developing scripts for him.
