    Eva Marie Saint

    There is an old Eminem and Dr. Dre song called Guilty Conscience, released in 1999, where he is referenced. Funny thing is he had already been dead for 3 years, but it was harder to look that up before the internet. "Look at the store clerk, she's older than George Burns".

    Eva Marie Saint

    I think that's fair, I was thinking about her career as a whole but Titanic really tipped the scale in her favour. Rainer was a bit of a one hit wonder (or two hit if you will, haha), wasn't she? Presle was definitely a huge star in France, I'll give you that, the rest were not in the same category nationally or internationally I think. I'd take Danielle Darrieux any day of the week ahead of Casadesus, for example. Caren Marsh Doll's biggest claim to fame is a movie in which she didn't even appear! That says a lot.

    Eva Marie Saint

    If Eva Marie Saint makes it to her 100th birthday in 3 months, where would you rank her among the biggest movie star centenarians ever? Kirk Douglas, Bob Hope, Olivia de Havilland, George Burns and Glynis Johns are arguably top 5 at the moment. She should be up there on their level. Then we have the tier below, with the likes of Luise Rainer, Gloria Stuart, Marsha Hunt, Norman Lloyd, Janis Paige, Baby Peggy, and so on. Another question, has there ever been a movie with a would-be centenarian leading couple? Because Eva starred with Bob Hope in the 1956 comedy That Certain Feeling.

    People Who Are Dead According To Wikipedia...

    Yep, we can add old Mossin to the list of dead Swedish centenarians.

    Two consecutive top 20 positions? I'm happy with that.

    Marsha Hunt played Bobby Driscoll's mum in The Happy Time (1952). Driscoll died 54 years before Hunt.

    Ideas and possibilities for 2025

    Two Australians to consider... Steve Mortimer, OAM, halfback rugby player, born in 1956. He played for Canterbury-Bankstown. In 2008, he was named one of the 100 best Australian rugby league players of all time. He was diagnosed with dementia in 2021, and his brother Pete is quoted to have said that health problems have accelerated his dementia. Namely, heart attack, pneumonia & bronchitis in the past 3 years. Michael Milton, OAM, the most successful Australian Winter Paralympics athlete ever with 11 medals to his name, starting in 1992 in Albertville. He was born in 1973. He has only one leg and was the Lareus World Sports Awards winner in the disability category in 2003. That year, he broke the record from 1987 of the fastest disabled skier. He also broke a national cycling record in 2007. He represented Australia in the Summer Olympics in Beijing in that sport. In 2013, he broke the world record for the fastest marathon runner in crutches, in 5 hours and 23 minutes. In 2018, another world record but for the distance 5 km in 32 minutes. Health-wise, he got bone cancer when he was 9, which left him with only one leg. In 2007, he got oesophageal cancer. In October 2023, he got cancer for a third time, this time bowel cancer.

    Man, the committee deserves some kind of medal if they, after snubbing her year after year after year, were to get a hit with her on their first attempt.

    Sorry dude, I actually hadn't thought of that. I do like the sentiment of such a record happening organically. I'm sure there will be other opportunities, as I'm sure the committee will pick a lot of dullards in the future.

    Does he have one of the most modest Wikipedia pages ever for a DeathList entry? His biography isn't very long (no personal life, childhood??), there's only 3 references, 2 of which are for the same damn site. And there's that unsightly box right above the article text basically whining that it ain't up to scratch. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigel_Starmer-Smith
