Hollywood Possibilities

Recommended Posts

Guest IYG

I'm bored and I don't want to study about the Cold War anymore at the moment so I'll make this list.

All of these people are over 85 years old and might be getting close to meeting their maker.

Art Linkletter - born 1912
Joey Bishop - born 1918
John Forsythe - born 1918
Celeste Holm - born 1919
Robert Wise - born 1914
Michelangelo Antonioni - born 1912
Lewis Gilbert - born 1920

Ok, better get back to studying now.

Something I'm sure that will interest you guys here... the current issue of UK magazine GQ has a feature on Hollywood's surviving leading men. They've all been captured by a top photographer. My mind seems to have gone blank, but Mickey Rooney and Kurt Douglas are in there. As well as... Sir John Mills! Poor guy - dead by the time the article came to print!

It would make it interesting if John Mills keeps up the trend and sets the example for other Hollywood types just as many others have done before.

Who's Kurt Douglas? Any relation to Kirk Douglas?

No, I think he meant Kurt Douglas Geotechnical Engineering Lecturer at the University of New South Wales and author of Analysis of Concrete and Masonry Dam Incidents.

There's no mention of Kurt's Hollywood career on that website

He doesn't like to look boastful.

I think Kurt Douglas is a relative of the very famous Eric Douglas.... :o

Just like Margaret Loren, who is the sister of the equally famous Dorothy Loren...

Okay, I meant Kirk Douglas. Let's face it, he's hardly the most famous man in the world these days, is he?

He's not 85 but he has got Alzheimers and prostate cancer.

 

Apologies if it's on another thread but the Possibilities For 2006 thread is upto 37 pages on my preferences and I really can't be arsed going through it all as this is probably going to be merged anyway. ;)

Well Done IYG!

 

Robert Wise was an inspired suggestion.

Bastard couldn't wait a bit longer? I was going to put him on my list next year.

Kirk Douglas b. 1916- will be 90 in 2006.

 

Heston sounds like a good pick

Keep Liz Taylor and Wyman and Olivia on.

Don Knotts - even though he's not 85, he's had complications after having a bowel resection, has macular degeneration and has been deemed too frail to travel.

I'm not going round his for Christmas, doesn't sound like it'll be too lively.

I actually thought he'd be gone by now. When I was in Canada for the summer, they had a column in the entertainment section about how he had to cancel a parade in his honour or something similar due to failing health.

 

Made it sound like he'd be gone in a week, but then again, that's sensationalism for you. Still, there's most likely a base truth beneath all the fluff.

 

Great actor in my mind though, albeit slightly limited in range. If he can hang around for a while longer, good for him.

And for us, as long as it's not too long - January 1st would be just fine.
