    Merv Griffin

    Merv Griffin, American entertainment magnate and host of the Merv Griffin Show is apparently in intensive care after his prostate cancer returned in July. He is in "grave condition" at Cedars-Sinai. He will likely be gone in the next couple of days in my opinion.

    1989 Ray Moore

    I do like the offbeat style of this website - and I'm sure that Ray would too! However; dear Ray Moore was only 47 yrs of age when he died - not 55 ! He was a true professional in the world of broadcasting and perhaps the nicest man anyone could hope to meet! I hope your admin. will correct this error. Best regards jw

    Maurice Papon

    Convicted Nazi collaborator, Maurice Papon looked extremely frail on a French language television station today. In 1998, he was sent to prison for complicity in crimes against humanity for his role in deporting 1,690 Jews to Germany as second-in-command of Bordeaux area police during World War 2, only to be released a few years ago due to ill health. At 95, he is now suffering from a number of ailments, including heart disease and is now bedridden. It looks like he will soon be meeting his maker.

    Norah Baring

    Norah Baring, Alfred Hitchcock's leading lady in his 1930 film "Murder!" will be 99 on January 1 2006. I think the only problem we have here is this - does this lady pass the famouseness test? I'm not 100 per cent certain she does. But if we think so, we could have a very good candidate for next year. It's perhaps one for debate. So here are the pros and cons as I see them. The pros: 1 She is a Htichcock leading lady. There were around 50 of them and they all exist as a movie sub-genre in themselves. 2 She is British and will be natural fodder for a Daily Telegraph obit. 3 She starred in Hitchcock's second talkie, very early in his career and will be seen as something of a pioneer. (Anny Ondra, wife of Deathlist success Max Schmeling, was his first and received numerous obits when she died in 1987, despite making only a handful of British films and retiring in 1951.) 4 Virtually all Hitchcock leading ladies get an obit in the broadsheets. 5 In "Murder!", she is a devastatingly stunning brunette (rare for Hitchcock, who famously cast blondes). Her uniqueness to the obit writers is again enhanced. The cons: 1 She retired from films in 1934! (Although this could make her more of an enigma for obit writers). 2 We have no idea of her health although one very poorly put together website is following her longevity with interest, along with other ancient movie stars - http://www.totalblowhole.com/new-4688533-4676.html. Opinions gratefully sought.

    Roy Castle

    What does everyone think about the idea that the late performer Roy Castle contracted lung cancer through passive smoking? Did he really suck that much in through his trumpet, or was it something to do with tap dancing in working mens clubs in the 50s/60s/70s?

    Benny Parsons

    former NASCAR driver Benny Parsons to be treated for lung cancer http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2006/raci...s.ap/index.html would very likely pass the fame test in the US, not so sure he would in the UK. Anyone on this side of the ocean heard of him?

    Robert Anton Wilson

    I searched and couldn't find mention of Robert Anton Wilson, counter culture godfather and friend of Tim Leary. Could be an 'early doors' bidder for 2007. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Anton_Wilson Quote: "On June 22, 2006, Huffington Post blogger Paul Krassner reported that Robert A. Wilson is currently under hospice care at home with friends and family. [1] On 2 October 2006 Douglas Rushkoff reported that Wilson was in severe financial trouble.[2] As of 3 October the front page of rawilson.com contains an appeal for funds. Slashdot, Boing Boing, and the Church of the Subgenius also picked up on the story, linking to Rushkoff's appeal. [3] [4] These efforts succeeded beyond expectation and raised over USD 80,000 which will support him for at least 6 months.[citation needed]"
