    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.

    Françoise Hardy

    It is about time there was a specific thread for this French music icon. She has been fighting laryngeal cancer for years and has recently lost the ability to sing, owing to effects of cancer treatments. In the below recent article, it explains how Hardy now needs help going to the toilet and is in a very fragile state at the moment, according to her son. https://www.public.fr/Elle-a-des-gens-pour-la-toilette-Francoise-Hardy-affaiblie-par-la-maladie-son-quotidien-est-devenu-un-enfer-Un-proche-balance-1750927 And in the following even more recent article, it is revealed Hardy feels too tired to come to see her son. https://www.lefigaro.fr/musique/thomas-dutronc-s-inquiete-pour-sa-mere-francoise-hardy-elle-se-sent-trop-fatiguee-c-est-complique-20221201

    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.

    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.

    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.

    21. Joss Ackland

    I am aware of the British Character Actors thread but I thought it was time to set Ackland up with his own thread. He was born in 1928, so he may be one to keep an eye on. Possibly one for the 2021 DL.

    15. Rosalynn Carter

    5 US Presidents are currently older than the oldest living former First Lady: Carter, Biden, Trump, Bush Jr and Clinton. The Carter's marriage also went for longer than any of the living First Ladies' current lifespans.

    Who Should Be On The 2024 Deathlist

    Despite approaching 96, Dooley is looking and sounding like a man with another 3-4 years left, if you see his latest Cameo videos (latest one claimed to be from October 16). A wiser replacement for Ackland would be Earl Holliman unless he goes before 2024. Another name I saw mentioned earlier in this thread which I similarly disagree with is William Daniels, also highly active on Cameo, looking and sounding like he has another 2-3 years left. In fact, I would not be very surprised if Dooley and Daniels are future centenarians. They'll certainly both get near 100.

    Isn't his cancer in remission?

    Thoughts on 2023 Deathlist

    The 2023 DL is guaranteed to get at least 17 hits. J Carter and MacGowan are guarantees. Many of us also see Jacques Delors as an end of year bonus, and Joanne Woodward, Nigel Starmer-Smith, Ethel Kennedy, Dennis Skinner and Bob Newhart are all seemingly on their last legs, one or two of those are likely to go before 2024 as well. We may well also get a more surprising hit (we've been getting a quite a few surprises this year), like Yoko Ono or Norman Lear. 18-20 hits is thus a most logical result.

    1. Dick Van Dyke

    Set to star on a CBS special, celebrating his 98th birthday
  24. Discovering The Old Crem’s first remembered celebrity death as Princess Margaret, made me think of mine. I believe the first celebrity death I heard about was Don Adams (a time when death didn’t interest me). I distinctly remember watching just a snippet of the Get Smart episode “The Decoy” , when he was gassed by the book. It could have been a re-run, but I seem to recall it as part of his news death report. Following deaths I certainly recall consisted of Steve Irwin, Luciana Pavarotti, Michael Jackson, Tony Curtis and John Barry (I know, very odd selection). From then on, I basically took on my interest in deaths and started hearing about them all.
