    Thoughts on 2023 Deathlist

    My suggestions to those issues are to make your list from least likely to most likely in advance (maybe today as if there has been a hit already) and to minimise your browser screen before coming to the DeathList site so it doesn’t show you anything you don’t want to see, only the _/50 dead.

    There’s also 12th February 2019 : Gordon Banks

    Thoughts on 2023 Deathlist

    Has now fallen behind the 2019 DL’s opening. If a hit does come this year, a game I sometimes do is I check the list first, so I don’t know who has died, only that there has been a hit. Then I write up the 50 candidates in order from least likely to most likely, put on some suspenseful music and do a Google Search of all candidates from least to most likely until I find the one who died. Usually, I make it to the 10 most likely before the dead candidate is revealed.

    People I Was Surprised To Find Are Still Alive

    Yes, occasionally there is the odd case where a gigantic person lives a long life. Clint Walker is another example (6’6”/198cm), he lived to 90. But generally celebrities over 190cm aren’t known to live as long as those under 180cm. Clint Eastwood has been under six feet for a while now in his old age, so that might be helping him survive.

    People I Was Surprised To Find Are Still Alive

    Wow! American crooner/actor Ed Ames is still going at 95 and was 6'3" (1.91m) in his prime! Also amazed Bess Meisler (Grandma from My Big Fat Greek Wedding) is still with us aged 100!

    @Book May we please see the scores for January? I'm on 2: Gianluca Vialli, Gina Lollobrigida.

    35. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

    Photo of Ayatollah taken this year. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Khamenei_2023.jpeg Looks like one of the healthiest candidates on this year's DL and a safe drop for 2024 at this rate. I bet he won't be carried over next year.

    Gene Hackman

    He is certainly getting frailer but still looking good all things considered for a 92 year old male. He is actually in similar form to Clint Eastwood nowadays, it’ll be interesting to see which of them has the last laugh. Both are worth holding out until the 2025 DL IMO, but I’ll completely understand if their induction is next year. There are many sicker looking and quieter old celebrities. At least Hackman can still pull off a neat signature.

    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    Because he is a household celebrity name who will be 94 next year (which means he perfectly fits DL criteria) and 94 is a dangerous age for anyone, especially a tall male, so much so, that I am finally at peace with Clint Eastwood being considered for the DL now. Not that I know of, but neither was Estelle Harris, as far as we knew, until she suddenly died one day aged 93. Ross also announced retirement from acting a few years ago now. What do others think about these possible additions for the 2024 DL?

    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    In terms of household names from famous American tv sitcoms, how about Marion Ross and John Astin, especially seeing the recent deaths from both Happy Days and The Addams Family?

    Hollywood Possibilities

    Lisa Loring's BBC Obit officially qualifies John Astin as famous enough for DL participation. It even mentions "John Astin, who played Gomez Addams, is the last living cast member of "The Addams Family"."

    20th Century Americans Sitcoms

    A must for the 2024 DL. He actually would have been a much better pick this year than Hal Linden.

    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    For a Hollywood triumvirate: Michael Caine, James Earl Jones, Jack Nicholson

    22. Jean-Marie Le Pen

    Well, as he seems to be doing them weekly now, I reckon he’ll stop after N-714. So that’s 25 to go, I reckon he’ll finally be too weak to do them by August, before he ultimately goes in November.

    Mysterious thread…

    The shooting of Olympic Skier Spider Sabich by Claudine Longet (who turns 81 today). She got 30 days in jail for negligent homicide, as no motive for his murder could be established. However, she was apparently dating her lawyer and future husband at the time, Ron Austin. The Rust shooting incident is also mysterious, but I don't believe Baldwin is at fault, unless he was the one who brought the live bullets to the set. How would he know if there were live bullets in the gun? It is the Prop Manager's responsibility to check these things.
