    Shirley MacLaine

    And quite a bit frailer than no. 31 and older Hollywood legend Angie Dickinson did earlier this year.

    Who Should Be On The 2024 Deathlist

    Shirley MacLaine looks worryingly frail in the article I posted on her thread. One for 2024?

    Jeremy Clarkson

    Shares update for fans concerned about his health after having MRI Scan of head This one deserves a thread of his own, having been plagued with health issues for years, and would not like to be sharing Hammond's thread. Clarkson battled pneumonia in 2017 (which he nearly died from), suffered from two serious bouts of COVID in recent years, and previously feared he would go at 61 like so many others. There is bound to be a lot more news to put here in the years to come.

    Chris Rea has had had more than his fair share of health issues (pancreatic cancer, diabetes, stroke); one to consider.

    The DeathList has already missed 2 James Bonds, it cannot afford to miss another (especially as Lazenby looks so rough at the moment).

    10. Robert Wagner

    Isn't Wagner the last living major male adult lead actor from 1950s Hollywood? Still has a few years left IMO.

    Who Should Be On The 2024 Deathlist

    Looks like Van Dyke and Greenspan will be vacating the top 2 spots on the 2024 DL. How boring and unwise.

    Henry Kissinger

    Although Jimmy now has another funeral to attend, and another reason to stay alive a little while longer

    Congratulations to the six who voted Kissinger.

    Who Should Be On The 2024 Deathlist

    Two names deserving more attention on this thread are Liza Minnelli and Tim Curry. Both have been in declining health for years, and will struggle making 80.

    Last appearances

    If James Dean had not been in that car accident or any car accident, does anyone think he would have made old bones (like Marlon Brando and Paul Newman), or would he have died young anyway of a natural death (like Elvis Presley and Montgomery Clift)? I reckon Dean would have died in 2010, aged 79.

    19. Clint Eastwood

    Agreed, looks better now than he did back in mid 2023. Could even have up to 5 years left judging by those photos, although unlikely to become a centenarian. Still, he would not be a bad pick any longer for future Deathlists.

    Françoise Hardy

    "Not doing well" according to her son Thomas a few days ago

    Ozzy Osbourne

    He could very well be next year's no. 50 on the official DL, following Shane MacGowan's inevitable demise. About time Ozzy makes a return.
  25. The Daredevil

    Billy Connolly

    A gut feeling he will be making his debut on the official DL next year, potentially in position 47 or 48. Still think he has roughly 5 years to go though.
