I am very Surprised a Dallas actor has managed to die off radar for over two years. Had it been publicised thr Daily Mail and the Mirror would have run articles about it as the headline ‘Dallas star dies’ is a click generating one.

Remarkable work by Ulitzer, yes. Lots of names falling down the back of the sofa there.

 

Trying to put faces to names to some of the less famous here.

 

Sondra James was on TV earlier this year in What We Do in the Shadows. She played the aged mother of the vampires next door neighbour, who it turns out was a close friend of Nadja's when she was a wee girl. Good show, I recommend it.

 

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRn5O0fxnH1yZgy-sOs7vo8A7MhaAd60ajtxKLu_cU9LX-qb3xh

 

Mark Bailey one of the dwindling cast from the Adam West Batman. He played a henchman to Zsa Zsa Gabor! (He's Apollo below)

 

Batman-Minerva01.jpg?resize=630,471&type=vertical

 

Clyde Baldo has been in a number of US TV shows in recent years (Fosse/Verdun and Gotham for example) and has, for me, one of those "oh yeah, that guy" faces.

As well as being Pete's mum on Mad Men, Channing Chase had a recurring role in the 90s in ER and is one of those old faces from back in the day.

Is French actor Georges Rivière (wiki) still alive?

Some sites, including IMDb, claim he died in Cannes in 2011, but a search in the French death records returns no such record. The Georges Riviere who died in Cannes in 2011 was born in 1921 and had different middle names...

He'll be 97 if still alive. His spouse, actress Lucile Saint-Simon (wiki), is 89.

@Lafaucheuse?

Are you asking me because I’m french or because I always come up with obscur names nobody asked for and usually spend hours trying to prove myself they’re still alive without succeeding ?  :sherlock:

 

tricky one because it’s a really common name out here. Not to be confused with Georges Henri Rivière, more famous, curator and author.

anyway, I found both sources claiming he is still alive and others saying he has died in 2011, which if I trust you is not true. 
here is the page of a site dedicated to actors and actress which has no date of death and his page was updated in September of this year : the home page here claims to work with a lot of administrative sources and contact so I assume they would contact them if they had any doubt.

I also found this which claims he wasn’t born in 1924 but in 1920 (an information I also found several times online), which links to this IMDB page that I can’t reach on my phone (idk why) but check it out and tell me if it helped ! 
 

I’ll may check later if I have some more time, let me know if you find something !

Same thing with Sabine André (supposedly the oldest actress, being born in 1913). The site (called the « largest encyclopaedia about European cinema ») claims she is still alive and her page was updated in July after Simonot’s death. Considering they have a lot of sources (mentioned here) and contacts (mentioned here) I would guess they checked before updating her as the oldest actress. 
Again, some might say it means nothing but hey, that’s already something unh !?

I don't know what you're talking about. I only signed up last week. Why would I make 2 accounts? You probably got the wrong person.

1922:
1) Betty White (IMDb) actress – American. Alive, as we're reminded almost daily due to the fact she's fangirled and fawned over by millions.
2) Janis Paige (IMDb) actress – Golden Age Hollywood star. Appearing in a 2021 documentary so must be doing alright.
3) Norman Lear (IMDb) writer and producer – Creator of All in the Family, Sanford and Son, amongst many other things. Has looked withered for years, but as Prince Philip proves, its not the aesthetics that count!
4) Dilip Kumar (IMDb) actor – the "last" of Bollywood's Golden Age stars. Currently giving Zsa Zsa Gabor a run for her money as the world's biggest coffin tease. UPDATE: Died 7 Jul 2021 (aged 98) and now updated on IMDb
5) Bill Fletcher (IMDb) actor – tricky one indeed. Not helped by the fact that IMDb doesn't list a full DOB, so he can't be tracked in records. Appeared in loads of U.S. TV series between 1951 and 1983.
6) Micheline Presle (IMDb) actress – French, part of both Hollywod's Golden era and classic French cinema. Last acting credit was in 2014.
7) Bert I. Gordon (IMDb) director and screenwriter – Filmmaker behind a lot of classic science fiction/horror b-movies such as Empire of the Ants and Earth vs. The Spider. Last directorial credit was in 2015.
8) Eunice Anderson (IMDb) actress – American. Known for portraying old ladies, notably in the film A League of their Own way back in the 90s(!) Last acting credit was in 2013.
9) Joan Copeland (IMDb) actress – American, also the sister of the late playwright Arthur Miller. Last credit was in 2016 but according to IMDb, she's due to appear in two upcoming documentaries?
10) Cate Bauer (IMDb) actress – This one is complicated! IMDb says she was born in 1922 in London, she was actually born in 1929 in New York City, though her mother was English. Her only notable non-stage role was as the voice of Perdita in Disney's One Hundred and One Dalmatians. Played in the DDP for years now, including by two theme teams this year! UPDATE: Now updated on IMDb to say born 1929, and still living in Washington as per the records.
11) Chandrashekhar (IMDb) actor – Another Bollywood name. Last credit was in 2004. If you Google image search "Chandrashekhar actor" there are pictures of him from 2017 where he looks like a resurrected corpse. Surely can't be around for much longer. UPDATE: Died in June 2021 and updated on IMDb to reflect.
12) Margia Dean (IMDb) actress and beauty queen – Golden Age name who appeared in films from 1944 to 1964. Still signing autographs in 2021.
13) Jacqueline White (IMDb) actress – Golden Age name who appeared in films from 1942 to 1952. Made a TCM screening appearance in 2013 and still signing autographs in 2021.
14) Ray Anthony (IMDb) bandleader, trumpeter, actor – last surviving member of the Glenn Miller Orchestra, one of the last living chart toppers of the UK Singles Chart during the 1950s. Here's a clip of him playing the trumpet on his 95th birthday in 2017, what a champ!
15) Alan Scott (IMDb) actor – American. Another prolific face, last credited role was in 1977. Died on Feb 5, 2021 (aged 98). Obituary here – quite a fascinating life. UPDATE: IMDb have now updated the page after contacting them.
16) Bridget Sellers (IMDb) wardrobe supervisor – English, born as Bridget Kent in Kingston (then part of Surrey) and married Ernest Sellers (he died in 1984). Notable credits include Dr. Strangelove and the Pink Panther films. Last one was in 1985. Now, there's a Bridget Sellers who was born in 1922 and died in Surrey on Nov 2, 2013 (aged 91). Is this her? Probably, but because BFI, IMDb etc. don't have a full DOB for her it's not possible to know for sure. Someone would have to order the death certificate and look at the widow information on it to get a concrete answer.
17) Walter Kelley (IMDb) actor – American. Credits in film and television with an appearance in a 1993 episode of Murder, She Wrote being his last. Died on Nov 29, 2015 (aged 93) in California. Death notice hereUPDATE: IMDb have now updated the page after contacting them.
18) Zygmunt Sulistrowski (IMDb) director, producer and writer – Polish Hollywood filmmaker. Last credit was in 1981. Moved to Brazil in 1988. This tends to suggest he was still around in 2006. EDIT: Scratch that. Died in 2007 according to this site on Polish BraziliansUPDATE: IMDb have now updated the page after contacting them.
19) Shirley Johns (IMDb) actress – American. Just a few film credits during the 1940s. IMDb have her DOB wrong – it's 3 March 1931, not 3 March 1922 (born as Shirley Imogene Joan Johnson). There's a record for a Shirley J. Johnson living in Santa Ysabel, San Diego County in 2021. Possibly her but not concrete.
20) Jane Holland (IMDb) actress – Australian, only three credits with two of them being tv movies. Born as Joan Southall in Sydney. Married to legendary Aussie actor Leo McKern, who died in 2002 in Bath, Somerset. She died in England on Jan 27, 2021 (aged 98) so yet another recent death. Her death notice hereUPDATE: IMDb have now updated the page after contacting them.
21) Audrey Strauss (IMDb) actress – Canadian. Better known as the first wife of the late American actor Robert Strauss until their divorce in 1960. Just one acting credit, in Stalag 17, in 1953 alongside her husband. Born as Audrey Bratty in Toronto. Can't trace her sadly.
22) Don Williams (IMDb) singer – last surviving member of The Williams Brothers quartette (of which Andy Williams was the most famous member). Several TV and film credits as part of the quartette. Facebook picture of him here in 2017 (note – using a wheelchair) with Jimmy Osmond at the Andy Williams Boulevard dedication.

What about British actress Annabel Maule, she is marked as having no evidence for her being alive for years, is she alive or not??? (Wiki@Ulitzer95

1) Arlene Dahl (IMDb) actress – One of the few big names from the Hollywood Golden era still alive. Hasn't acted since 1999 but still making appearances as recently as 2018 and returning fan mail as of April 2021.

@Ulitzer95 can you mark it in red, also Cara Williams.

We know. Reported in the Sitcoms thread in June by @markb4. Please use the search function first to see if a death has already been reported.

Also, FindAGrave is not a reliable source. I've had to remove 3 memorials for celebrities on there this year, because they were all still alive. :rolleyes: Golonka got obituaries from the Hollywood ReporterVarietyThe Mirror, and The Sun. Quote news sources instead. ;)
