    Lauren Bacall

    Is still relatively sprightly. Looking at her imdb page she is still making movies. Somebody to keep an eye on but a bit like Olivia Dehavilland I think she will flourish into her 90s. Anybody heard ony news on Joan Fontaine who turned 94 this year?

    The Dead Of 2010

    Legendary British actress Jean Simmons had died aged 80. A little bit of a shock as she made a film last year; and there had been no reports of her ill health. A very good actress in her day!

    Deathlist 2010 Feedback

    Not a bad list! Yet very conservative! I am surprised Anna Wing is so high, she is in good health still! As are Angela Lansbury (appearing on Broadway with Catherine Zeta Jones at the moment) and Olivia De Havilland! My prediction is all three will survive the year. Luise Rainer, Lena Horne and Gloria Stuart all better pics. You need to throw in Lindsay Lohan, or at least one young out there on a limb celeb! However I am sure I will be proved wrong and the Grim Reapers tally shall be high this year!

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2010

    Luise Rainer and Gloria Stuart both turn 100 next year. I think at least one of these two past Hollywood greats should be on the list.

    Vote Banshees Scream

    I for one actually enjoy reading Banshees Screams posts. The posts are sometimes controversial, yet at least they spark debate. To me this is preferable to reading dull dross.

    Hey Teacher, Leave Them Kids Alone

    I teach Religious Education, I hope that this site is still running in many years time (im only 27 so am hoping to be around for a long time) and that I get a mention on this thread when I finnaly shuffle off. It would be such an honour!

    Maggie Smith

    Hopefully she will make a full recovery. Not somebody I had considered, just shows that nobody is safe from the grim reaper, though she appears a long way from death yet. One to watch though

    Academy Award Winners

    Luise Rainer would be a good bet. Double Oscar winner in the 1930s, she is now 97. Also Gloria Stuart is 96, she won best supporting actress for playing Rose in Titanic (1997).

    Who's Going To Be Around For A While?

    Jean Simmons, very famous British actress from the 1940s onwards. Ms Simmons is now in her late 70s but has recently come out of retirement and is filming the lead role in a new film. I can easily see her making 90+.
  10. Has anyone else noted that all the successes for this years list are all men. A fact not surprising considering most of this years selections were male. It clearly shows however that women on the list have a much higher chance of surviving the year and as such are in essence much riskier candidates If i wasnt so damn lazy I would go back over Deathlist history and compare the ratio of male/female hits! Hopefully someone more worthy then me will take up this challenge because I would like to know without doing the necessary work lol

    Deathlist 2006-an All Boys Club?

    I have decided to revive this post as this years death list is even more male orientated then previous lists. I think only 4/50 names on the list are women. In recent years the trend does seem to be to focus on male celebrities, I understand that there is more success with this group but still what is next, an all male list! Instead of reducing the number of women on the list names just need to be selected more carefully. Deborah Kerr and Jane Wyman are two notible names that were missed last year. While Luise Rainer, Gloria Stuart, Joan Fontaine, Anna Wing, and Lena Horne are some names that could/should have made this years list. The women that made this years list seem to have been an after thought, Elizabeth Tayor??, she was swimming with sharks a few months ago! Even Vera Lynn seems an odd choice.

    Deathlist 2011

    A amazying women, at the age of 101 began a Masters Degree at Oklahoma University (well according to imdb, although it could be a leg pull?)

    Deathlist 2011

    Jennifer Jones, I think she could be a good bet. I dont believe she has been mentioned before. She will be 89 next year, and as an Oscar winner she is certainly famous enougth. Seeing as Deathlist usually has one or two ancient HollyWood luminaries on the list, why not take a punt on her. I really hope instead of Olivis Dehavilland the list features either Gloria Stuart, Luise Rainer, Phyllis Diller, Maureen Ohara, Lena Horne or Jona Fontaine. Jane Wyman was really a missed opportunity this year! Btw can anyone thing of any more famous Hollywood actresses still alive from the thirties or fourties, who are over 85!

    Olivia De Havilland

    Just turned 91, seems likely to be around for a few years yet. It will be very intresting to see if her or her sister Joan Fontaine dies first. Clerly some good genes in that family as both sisters despite advancing age are in comparitively good health.

    Who's Going To Be Around For A While?

    Doris Day, although she is in her mid eighties I can see this lady managing another decade at the very least.

    Damn, won't anyone die?

    Poor comprehension this time Mr Macabre, I believe you are confusing XX and XY. (I suggest you Google it). Never mind, I wouldn't expect anything less from a self-proclaimed 5 A A-level, university qualified student, who appears to have difficulty stringing a sentence or two together. I find it a very poor excuse for someone to be too mega-busy to re-read what they post, when they a. Have the time to post on a forum such as this, b. Expect other people to have enough time to read their post when they can't be arsed themselves. c. Expect anyone else to be interested in their opinion if they themselves don't care how their opinion is interpreted, or whether it is even understood. Such a low signal-to-noise-ratio often results in whatever valid information there is being lost completely. I suggest that if you use small words, short sentences, and limit yourself to commas, full stops and sentence capitalisation, even DL members as dim-witted and laggardly as myself will be able to understand your brilliant and lofty memes. I'll also help free up some of your valuable time by offering to not read your posts, so you don't have to worry about me following anything complex you wish to post making sense or following any kind of pesky arbitrary communication, language or grammar conventions. Ah, the wonders of the ignore button. A win-win situation all round. As a super-brainy, superbly qualified and mega-busy person of such eminence, I'm sure you'd agree with this approach, and get on with whatever super-important stuff you're doing. Keep up the good work. It must be hard at the top. I would just like to thankyou for all the compliments, they are much appreciated. But of course you wont be reading this post, but just in case thankyou for finding the time to respond to my comments. To be quite fair, the problem here is that you completly took a comment i made about Miss Whisp out of context!!! Although i did criticise her grammer my issue was that she kept making pointless tirades against other members who disagreed with her views (on Elizabeth Taylor, if my memory serves me correct). I very rarely post on here (27 in two years) and in that time i have never criticised other members apart from pointless ranters. To be quite fair you were the one to post a very hostile response, to a post that was far from incomprehensible. Anyways life is far too short to get involved in futile disputes with individuals one does not even no!So Honez I shall indeed attempt to clean up the grammer and spelling mistakes!! Happy now?

    Damn, won't anyone die?

    I was going to let this go, but when I got to the last sentence, I had to read, and re-read it a couple of times before I understood what you were trying to say. For God's sake, use punctuation if you want anyone to understand your witterings. For someone that once said... your ability/grasp leave a little to be desired.I disagree with the notion that this year's DeathList is a poor one. As has been pointed out before -- it hasn't been a good year for anyone (except maybe those that picked a certain young cancer-stricken girl). In response, my puntuation and grammer may leave something to be desired, but it doesnt seem to have held me back in life. 5 As at Alevel and a very good degree despite the poor english, not bad eh. Most of the mistakes arise out of the fact that i am normally mega busy and dont reread my posts. Anyways you sad cow how can you remember one of my insignificant posts from months ago and then crossrefrence it with something else i wrote almost a year later. Some people really need to get a life, i can picture you now ugly, fat and sat all alone at your computer the anger rising as you read what other people have written. Please get a grip, i suggest getting out more often!

    Damn, won't anyone die?

    Ok ok so maybe not a complete disaster as yet but it has hardly been a stellar year for Deathlist. I kind of think its inevitable, the team had been doing so well in recent years at somepoint they was going to be a setback. I think the overall number to die this year will be somewere around the 6/7 mark. Hopefully all it well mean is that the team realise they cant rest on their laurels and really put alot of effort in picking a set of better characters for next year. I.e Olivia de Havilland was always a no brainer she is in good health as such better to pick the likes of people like Hutton/De Carlo who no longer make appearences in public, usually a sign they are not in the best of health.

    Damn, won't anyone die?

    My my my what a slow start to this year it has been! I no that last year it took the old dears a while to start droping off the perch but this is plain ridiculous! To be honest I wasnt that impressed by this years selection, I mean the likes of Olivia Dehavilland purlease, it just doesnt make sense. Perhaps the past few years of recent success have made the selecters a tad lazy? Therefore a bit of a failure this year wouldnt be all bad and would perhaps rejuvenate everyone for next year? [Merged - ff]

    Ruby Muhammad

    Hmm how disapointing that she has made the list. A boring choice whose age almost certainly guarantees a success for the list. Over half of the top ten are over a hundred with two being over 105 (Brooke Astor). Anyone else think it reads like a bit of a cop out? Furthermore all Deathlist's hits last year were men and with only 7 women on this years list the trend may continue.

    2007 DL Nominations Please

    2006 has undoubtedly been a good yera for Deathlist. However they havent had much look on their old Hollywood film star picks. I cant see either Fontaine or Dehavilland shuffling off just yet. Better picks would be Luise Rainer- Born 1910, double Oscar winner Gloria Stuart- Born 1910, Rose in Titanic Tony Martin- Into his 90s now Lena Horne- 90 this year, apparently in ill health I successfully guessed Jane Wyatt and June Allyson wouldlnt make 2007 but would anyone listen no Other Hollywood maybes would be Esther Williams, Charlton Heston, Kirk Douglas, Doris Day, Maureen O'hara, Cyd Charrisse, Deborah Kerr, Eli Wallach, Phylliss Diller, Googie Withers, Dulcie Grey, Jean Simmons, Kitty Carlilse, Charles Lane, Janis Paige, Jane Wyman, Celeste Holm.

    Elizabeth Taylor

    Ms Taylor looks safe from the grim reaper for some years yet. Recent interviews, swimming with sharks, and a new beau all showing she is in much better health then thought by many. Cant see how she would even be a likely candidate for next years list. Personally im not really surprised that Liz is not near deaths door they have been tales in the press about her iminebt demise since the 1960s. The fact she is/was such a huge star, ageing and one of last few remaining hollywood greats all reasons the press speculate so much about her wellbeing

    Hollywood Possibilities

    Well poor old Jane Wyatt wont be able to make appearence any more, shame. Good innings though 96. Am sure trekkies everywere are in mourning as another of the celebrated caste departs this earthly plain. Oh and before anyone grumbles I realise her death will have been commented on in near misses etc
  24. Mr Macabre

    Hollywood Possibilities

    How exciting would it be if they decided to do a big Holloywood movie starring some of the all time greats. Sort of like Coccoon but with the added element of some hot sex scenes . I reckon Luise Rainer and say Tony Martin would have to be the leads in a story of sex, betryal and intrigue for the over nineties. Full frontal nudity and closeup sex scenes being key elements of the plot.Just too please the older fans they would be some big scale musical numbers were the likes of Cyd Charrisse and Doris Day would hobble on croak a tune and exit. Sound like a box office smash?Come on some one out there must be willing to fund the whole enterprise.

    Brooke Astor
