Sundance veterans may remember the 2007 documentary "Crazy Love," which told the story of Burt and Linda Pugach -- whose love story made tabloid headlines in 1959, when thugs hired by Mr. Pugach threw lye in the face of Linda Riss.
Miss Riss was blinded. Mr. Pugach was imprisoned for 14 years. When he was released, he divorced his first wife and proposed to Miss Riss on live TV. She said yes.
Linda Pugach died from heart failure Tuesday in a Queens hospital, the Associated Press reported. She was 75.
