Genie Hinton loved movies. She was an extra on the big screen, but she was a star in her husband Ron Hinton's eyes.
She had quick with wit, was talkative and loved telling stories, which gave her no trouble making friends.
Hinton grew up in Atlanta, where her father worked as an artist for the Paramount Theater painting billboards. She spent most of her childhood in the theater watching movies and meeting movie stars. She would often go straight to the theater after school.
She landed a few roles in commercials, then got a break as an extra in "My Cousin Vinny," the Covington-filmed "In the Heat of the Night" and "Fried Green Tomatoes."
Eugenia Henry Hinton, known as Genie by most, died Aug. 17 at DeKalb Medical Hillandale from complications of a large kidney stone. She was 73. Read the news obituary.
