Bad luck for one DDP team who picked her!

 

According to a recent IMDb update, Lelita Rosa (b. 1908) died back in 1980 aged just 71.... shit times!

 

makes you wonder how many other people supposedely over 100 that we're sitting waiting to die who have actually been dead for years.maybe half of the deathlist are allready dead and we just didn't know!

Hardly up-to-date. It's from 2009, so 4 years old now. Nice to have them in a list, but the list on this thread is more accurate.

Who do you think will be the last one to die? My guess is Mildred Kornman. Not only is she the youngest from the list, but she also looks to be in great shape. Here are some pictures to prove it.

 

88th birthday. Note, Mildred is the one in the middle.

Also 88th birthday, with her son

Mildred in 1949, at age 24

Mildred in 1966, at age 40-41

That has got to be the most overrated site ever. Everybody always refer to it when talking about the last silent actors and I don't understand why.

 

*Mona Ray died in 1986

 

*Lelita Rosa died in the 1980s

 

*Dorothy Bartlam died in 1991

 

*Lupita Tovar was never in silent films. Her film The Veiled Woman was originally a talkie but only made silent to adjust for cinemas without sound equipments

 

*Baby Ivy Ward is probably dead since a looong time ago

 

*Magda Foy died in 1972

 

*Paulette Dubost was never in silent films.

 

*Jack Murphy died in 1962

 

*Leon Holmes is probably dead since a looong time ago

 

*Nanette Fabray was never in those silent Our Gang films

 

*Arthur Trimble died in 1948

 

If the site was updated last in 2010, why didn't he/she include Yvonne Howell, Jack Totheroh, Bruce Guerin, Vondell Darr, Carol Adams, Peggy Ahern, Jane Margaret Truesdell, Jack Hanlon, Don Marion, Dickie Moore, Fay McKenzie, Mildred Kornman, Lassie Lou Ahern and Maria Riva?

No they're not. And Tovar wasn't a silent film actress...

Problemo - Loni Nest's death is being reported as being a complete hoax.

 

http://monsterkidcla...e-Golem?page=-1 (second comment down)

 

This seems to be becoming an ever more increasingly frequent problem recently with obscure or long-forgotten celebs being reported dead erroneously or just complete fabrications being produced...

 

The comment says she apparently died in Europe "years ago". I see she's already been declared dead on DDP. What happens in a situation like this?

 

EDIT: FindAGrave, IMDb and Wikipedia all have her as dead, plus all her "life details" from the original obituary added. Quite worrying if this is a hoax. Massive problem with memorial pages I suppose.

According to Wikipedia, she is dead...since 1990. Total fail.

One of the last actors from the Our Gang series Jackie Lynn Taylor has died at 88 http://www.sacbee.co...es-tv-host.html

Which silent films was she in?

 

The Our Gang series?

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Gang

NO! Most Our Gang films were SOUND and not SILENT. Jackie's first film came in 1933 in a SOUND film with the fat dude and the thin one. So Guest shouldn't have posted her death here.
