Hollywood Possibilities

Recommended Posts

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.

 

Looks like that's a point for MBH2.

 

Aside from needlessly pointing that out, I've noticed that out of the mentioned people on this thread, only Robert Wise died and Charleton Heston was placed on the list. Just thought reviving this would be a nice reminded to anyone in need.

Jules Drassin...director...b. 1911

Kitty Carlisle...panalist...b.1910

Bruce Bennett...bit actor...b.1906

 

Old, old Hollywood figures. But might get a three-quarter inch obit somewhere in England.

Kitty Carslisle, as per a news article I posted somewhere on the site, is still giving interviews and performing.

 

In all fairness though, I hope that I'm proven wrong, since she's on my DDP. She's had a long good life.

Tony Martin as Rose? I just might have to watch that movie after all... :D

 

Also, you missed Anita Page (95 going 96), Barbara Kent (99 going 100) and Anita Page (95 going 96) and probably more I can't think of at the moment.

Today is the 96th birthday of film actress Anita Page. I stumbled across her RDP profile, and it's quite a good read for a few minutes - http://www.nndb.com/people/928/000066730/

 

Went to her website, though I couldn't see where you could send her emails that she'd reply to, and I don't feel like doling out $45.00 for an autographed picture (though the pack rat side of me was tempted). Apparentely though, she's healthy and spry.

 

If my inner pack rat gets the best of me, I'll let you know, though perhaps I'll ask for a current picture instead of an old one. :lol:

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.

It's a great idea. There's still a decent cast list that can be assembled.

 

Finally, we'd have a movie that showed modern moviegoers what real acting is.

 

S'pose the only thing that might scupper it is insurance costs?

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

Not quite on topic, but close enough. Article on oldest living TV stars.

 

Setting aside the obvious fact that "TV star" should be more properly translated "American TV star," I'm not sure it's entirely correct, but I'm too lazy check. If nothing else, Charles Lane should be worthy of consideration.

 

Anyhow, just thought I'd put it out there.

Here's the end quote:

''There is one TV legend, though, who’s older than all of them. He’s Frank Stanton, one of the giants of TV history who was president of CBS from 1946 to 1971. He’s still alive, if not quite kicking, at age 98''.

 

Hmmm...sounds like one for the Deathlist. One additional peice of trivia regarding Mr Stanton: It was he who devised the Presidential debates on television. :ghost:

The great man is not so active these days, but interestingly is a member of the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee (along with former vice presidential first lady Joan Mondale). This body of notables meets four times yearly in Washington, D.C and reviews proposals submitted for new US stamp designs.

 

I propose he deserves to be on one himself!

Just seen that Celeste Holm has just turned 90 and is still going. In fact, at 87 she married for the fourth time, this latest husband being an opera singer 46 years her junior. Noted for having won an oscar in 1947 and for never missing a chance to let the world know what a talentless piece of self-centred crap Marilyn Monroe was, not that she was bitter after working with her on All About Eve, or owt.

 

Oh aye, and mebbe we should rename this thread.

 

Thread renamed about 30 seconds after I suggested, now that's service!

Anita Page no longer meriting consideration (I thought there was a specific thread for silent film actors but can't seem to find it).

Cinematographer Gilbert Taylor was looking quite wizened when I saw him on Paul Merton's programme about Alfred Hitchcock, but then he was born in 1914. Might be one to keep an eye on.

Saw a very good Beeb documentary tonight about The Andrews Sisters.

The sole surviving sister,Patty, celebrated her 90th birthday last month.

Cant find any up to date pics of her but, in fairness, she has to go sooner rather than later.
