I see Mr Cole is 80 today....

...and also that some genius put him on the list in 1989...good call....

Should he "minder" out in 2006?

Okay, bit new at all this & finding my feet, so to speak, so bear with me. So this is all about who's going to shuffle off their mortal coil & all that, yeah? No flies on me, buddy!

Well, my first prediction & it pains me to do so as I am a fan, is the wonderful Mister George Cole. As great an actor he might have been in the St. Trinians films & the legendary Minder, he looked at death's door the other night when I saw him on the box. On, not in.

Shane Richie did a half hour slot on Minder, just after Doc Martin, & George was on it with Dennis Waterman. Dennis looked bad enough (I've commented on him elsewhere) but George looked awful. Granted, he is 80 odd but lumme, his bloodshot eyes made him look like the undead. In fact, it just might be possible that George Cole is the first celebrity vampire.

Well that's all fine and dandy and all but we already had a hit with the immortal Lou Rawls (no relation as to my knowledge at least to Bert Rawls who was a postman)

Do you have a pool of death somewhere where these listings of yours arte posted? This Cole character seems interesting as a choice.....

I can see it now..."Cole turns cold" :lol: ;) :( :lol:

Cole turns cold- like it. How about "Cole In The Hole?"

Nope, don't have a list as yet- like I said, I'm a newbie, but old George came to mind after seeing him the other night. In fact, he's been perturbing me since the other night.

Ghastly, quite ghastly.

I watched the old Christmas Carol movie during the holidays; it's surprising any of them are alive this much later apart from the ones who were children at the time.

Speaking of which, apparently the kid who played Master Peter Cratchit (Tiny Tim's older brother) committed suicide about 10 years after the movie was released. No details given about method or motive, though.
"Every process, event, happening - call it what you will; in a word, everything that is going on in Nature means an increase of the entropy of the part of the world where it is going on. Thus a living organism continually increases its entropy - or, as you may say, produces positive entropy - and thus tends to approach the dangerous state of maximum entropy, which is death."

- Erwin Schrodinger, "What is Life?", Cambridge University Press, 1944

I wonder if anyone remembers his "classic" Christmas single:

" 'Old up, 'ere comes Chisholm."

"He's giving me a funny look!"

I saw him in a play a few years ago called "Lock up your daughters". It was the biggest pile of crap I've ever seen & I left at 1/2 time.
Hope he dies soon to spare everyone more rubbish like that.
There were three of us in the morgue so it was rather crowded

Kid was called John Charlesworth & killed himself in 1960, nine years after Scrooge! was released.

Had a quick flick through Rotten.com, imbd & wikipedia, but can't find any reference to it method etc.

As for motive, I think it's fair to say that he wanted to end it all.
