    Remember you can't pick anyone who's already been picked now.

    It's the Queen's reign, not her lifespan. He still qualifies though.

    It's only to be expected with such a long run-in.

    Better still, call herself by her real first name, the much nicer Rachel.

    Looks like Biblio is handed a unique pick with Maradona ..........

    Ion Iliescu

    It just clutters the forum up though. It makes it harder to find references. People need to be exceptionally interesting or regularly newsworthy to merit their own thread. Just being old/ill isn't enough. Most will fit into an existing general thread. The opening post here would be fine in 'Ideas and Possibilities', which is where it belongs.

    Why have you started a thread on him?

    Is that a site for necrophiles?

    Meanwhile, does anyone have a view on my password question a couple of posts up? It makes you wonder if it's worth having passwords at all if we're all being spied on to this degree.
  13. Not if there's nothing to say. In the event that there is any news about her, wouldn't Hollywood Possibilities do?
  14. Shirley Maclaine was born in 1934, but the thread is about Joan Collins, who was born in 1933.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    After all the rave reviews, I was disappointed with The Queen's Gambit. I didn't expect the whole of the first episode to be about a child in an orphanage, and I found it dull. I pressed on, but it just didn't grab me. I thought we would see more of the actual games. I had two attempts at getting to the end of Ep 3, but fell asleep both times, despite the mesmerising presence of Jacob Fortune-Lloyd (he's a terrific scheming slyboots in Medici). After that I gave up on it.

    ISTR that you hadn't heard of her, Willz. But as I expected, instant front page obit on the BBC site. She would have been a good DL pick.

    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

    Fantastic resource. You can only search in 5-year blocks, so without a clue it can be time-consuming, but hey. The GRO births and deaths are completely revised indexes, so not the same as on FreeBMD. There are still errors and omissions though .....
