Well, there's a few more alive if you go through the entire cast list. I get what you say about Wikipedia pages only but it makes all look a bit incomplete. 

I'm biased because of my James Stewart interest but:

 

Rear Window:

Rand Harper (1929), Kathryn Grant (1933)

He was great in Fun with Dick and Jane.

I hope his death brings out an airing for his version instead of the constant showing of that gawd awful rehash with jim Carey.

Sad, loved her a lot. Loved her in Arrested Development. Then she played the same role in Archer. Also a frequent guest actor. Sadly, when I saw her the last time (guesting on Big Bang Theory) she looked already pretty old. Yes, she was, but you knew, she wasn't aging well.

She has a perfect DDP profile picture that I am going to miss.

Died a day after George Segal who played her ex-husband in Just Shoot Me. 

I probably know her best from Grand Prix.

Robert Rodan, chiefly known as Adam in 1968's Dark Shadows, has died aged 83.

That's the third recent Dark Shadows death, following Geoffrey Scott & Christopher Pennock, who both died last month.

Seattle Rep reporting that film, television and stage actor Biff McGuire (wiki) has died aged 94. They don't give a date though.

A frequent face on Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

Well that's one less name for me to cover on the Detective thread next week then...

Edit: Also of note... his widow, English actress Jeannie Carson (wiki) is still alive, turning 93 in May.
2nd edit: Hollywood Reporter obit... but still no death date given.

Mentioned a few weeks ago with the 1923 names.

 

The DDP write ups shall continue, I managed to get a few out during the week there with painkillers (allergy flare up - not anything for anyone else to worry about) but hoping things will be more normal by end of this week.

Walter Olkewicz, a prolific Hollywood character actor who had occasional roles on television series like Twin Peaks, Grace Under Fire and Who's the Boss, as well as a movie appearances in films like 'The Client', has died. He was 72. Olkewicz's health had long been on the decline, something his son had made public a few years ago.
