    Steve did, but he spelt the name right which may be why you missed it.

    A Night To Remember

    The eve of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic seems a good time to consider the status of the cast of the 1958 film "A Night To Remember". Still thought by many to be the best Titanic film, it is packed with famous names and familiar faces, many uncredited. (I still haven't managed to spot Sean Connery, mind you.) Below, courtesy of IMDB, is the complete cast list (or so it says). I've attached year of death where applicable, and year of birth where no death is indicated. The latter are highlighted in red. Names in green are those for whom no dates are supplied by IMDB. Please note all the data is taken from IMDB and I have not cross-checked any of it, so there may be some errors. I have not included film crew, but note that all the principals (director, writers, producer) have departed.

    A Night To Remember

    Yes, and kicking myself for picking Gerald Harper over her in the Silver Screen Deadpool! She would have won it for me.
  5. That entails making another post, and almost certainly quoting the post being responded to. Reactions are more ... economical.

    Honor was a wildcard for me. I see I had William Frankland as well.

    Could all be a scare story designed to frighten people into obeying the rules. I wouldn't put it past them.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    "Women like her don’t get obituaries" They do if somebody writes one and submits it to the local paper. He could also have sent it to the Guardian for their "Other Lives" obit series.

    Sickest game in the world

    I prefer the abusive rants.

    What are you doing to kill the boredom.

    I've been literally shovelling shit. The need has arisen to enrich the soil in our small veg patch. Across the road there are allotments, and there is a large juicy pile of well-rotted horse manure deposited for the use of allotment holders, of whom I am not one. So whenever the coast is clear I've been scooting over with barrow and shovel. About four more excursions should suffice, I think. Still, plenty more where it came from.

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    Not really, she's been very fragile for some time. I saw her in concert about four years ago and she did the whole gig seated, and needed assistance to walk on and off stage. She was great though. I hope she comes through this.

    Coronavirus death toll 2020

    Could Vitamin D be a factor? About 2m08 he talks about skin colour and that darker skin produces less Vitamin D.

    The Chequered Flag

    Nobody said that. What Lady Fiona said was: With an older parent there is also higher chance of them having downs or being autistic etc. Unless it really was planned and they made sure the fetus didn't have certain medical conditions etc. She was merely speculating that those particular people may have had such thoughts. She didn't say that they should have, or that it was OK. Stop with the straw man arguments, please.

    Morris Minors were very sought after in those days.

    What are you doing to kill the boredom.

    Funny you should say that. When I was at university (proper university, before they renamed all the polys and tech colleges as universities) there was a famous piece of graffiti in the toilets in the library cafeteria. Next to the bog roll, someone had written "Sociology Degrees - Please Take One"

    The Chequered Flag

    I suspect the mothers are the ones mostly to blame in these cases. They will be the ones wanting to have a child, and where there's a lot of money involved, that child will be their pension fund.

    I thought everybody had a degree these days.

    Dead Pop Stars

    It is. To the point where it's just a meaningless and insincere cliché. I am genuinely sad that Bill Withers has died though.
