    Films with entirely dead casts

    Watched the 1954 Finnish movie "Kovanaama" ("Thug", https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0133052/) today. Never before have I seen a movie with so talented actors with the writing being very bad... Some scenes make no sense and nearly all of the characters are made to look dumb. The writer was Aarne Tarkas who had ADHD and alcoholism and died aged 52 in 1976 from a heart attack, possibly caused by alcohol use. Not one of the best movies written by Tarkas. More about the movie and Tarkas on imdb. Some amazing actors, especially Lasse Pöysti (1927-2019, main role, a reporter) and Toivo Mäkelä (1909-1979, criminal boss) Anyways, all of the cast members seem to be dead. With Lasse Pöysti's death in 2019 the only living one of the people mentioned on imdb is Lauri Elo (1928-), art director.

    The Dead of 2021

    Pakistani actor Talat Iqbal dead in the US: https://www.geo.tv/latest/372208-renowned-pakistani-actor-talat-iqbal-dies-in-us He was in critical condition and on ventilator eight days ago but I decided not to mention it in the "hospitalised" thread as he does not have a wikipedia page and I'm not sure if he even has a proper imdb page. However, he must have been famous there as over ten Pakistani news have wrote about his death.

    Eliyantha White, Sri Lankan spiritual healer who "only treated VIP's" and who claimed he could end the pandemic dead from covid aged 48: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/9/23/sri-lanka-shaman-dies-covid-blessed-water-cure Treated Indian cricket stars such as Sachin Tendulkar, invited David Beckham for treatment (unclear if Beckham took the offer) and was also current Prime Minister of Sri Lanka Mahinda Rajapakse's personal physician. White was, of course, also a vaccine sceptic.

    Nazi of SS

    Sonntag died in March 2006 and Bruß in December 2011 according to their Polish wikipedias. Not much new about Schulz or Michnia. Chance they could have died off-radar during the last five to three years? From Prophet's February list now atleast three are dead, as Stork, Oberlander and Berger and possibly also Riss. An "Aksel Andersen" born 1924 died in 2018, however I don't know if this was that Aksel Andersen.

    World's Oldest

    https://gerontology.wikia.org/wiki/Arnold_Hawkins Arnold Hawkins, second-oldest man in Canada and oldest man born there died four days ago aged 110. Had longevity in his family: Grandmother lived to 107, two of his uncles lived to 100+ and sister lived to 99. His wife also lived long, to 96 and wife's sister lived to 106. The five oldest people in Canada currently are: 1. Cecile Klein, 114, I've mentioned her before, oldest and one of the last living subjects of Edward VII. 2. Shige Mineshiba, 112. Born in Japan, quite a miracle how she is still alive: Had a myocardial infection at the age of 87 and has had dementia for around 12 years. 3. Yvonne Delorme-Martel, 111. Wheelchair-bound. 4. Anonymous of British Columbia, 111. 5. Ja Hyung Lee, 111. Oldest man in Canada, born in Korea.
