Al Lewis

181 posts in this topic

Like DWB I was also doing a bit of casual DeathList research and think Ive stumbled across an exciting new possibility.

 

It appears that Al Lewis who played Grampa Munster in the 1960s TV series is still alive and coming up to his 94th brithday.

 

I cannot find any news of his recent health or his death but I have found a site where you can book him for a personal appearance - Perhaps he should be the guest of honour at the DeathList Xmas party.

seems we're doing quite well in the Derby Dead Pool. Tied for first, and one of the other people in first is only there because Alisdair Cooke, their joker pick (which counts double), passed on. But why was Queen Julianna, our number 20, not amongst the 20 entries?

 

I do fear the Reaper might have made a slight tactical error, but all in all an excellent effort....

Ronnie - Thre was some sort of method in my madness - I tried to add a couple of our younger selections into our team to pick up more points - eg that youngster Ian Brady

 

Even so our team appears by far the oldest in the Dearby Dead Pool but with enough 4 point scores we should do ok.

If you have sky tv, tune into the biography channel the next time the Munsters are featured. Al looks like his character now and Yvonne de Carlo does'nt look her age (80 I think)

I've heard of him.

 

Damn you Eurocentrics - you'll have hoards of Americans complaining soon.

Regardless of whether he is famous enough or not accross the pond, my choice for the trifecta is GRAMPA AL LEWIS!!

It is a shame that you didnt take the time to realize that there is already a post on Al Lewis and the Moderaters have already turned the idea down. [Topics now merged - DWB]

I'm quite surprised that he made it to the list with the famous enough debate, haven't heard any recent news on him.

:banghead: I remember seeing a twilight zone/outer limits type program (in color) on tv a few years ago where Al Lewis played the part of a grandad who,even though he had just died, refused to accept he was dead and continued exsisting with his family until he started to decompose, until his grandson convinced him that his time was up....maybe this is what has actually happened to him in real life and he just won't die....or maybe I dreamt the tv show-has anybody ever seen it?

Hello

 

Al Lewis is born real 30. June 1908. No 30. April 1910. He is soon 97 year old.

deadoraliveinfo.com says this:

There is some substantial amount of debate as to the true year of birth for Al Lewis. Some sources say 1910, some say 1923. According to an interview with his family members, the 1910 date is a "story" and the real date is 1923. (If anyone has his birth certificate, send it along.)

IMDb and Wikipedia both say he was born in 1910. I haven't seen 1908 mentioned anywhere.

I hope he goes in style like a massive bloodbath in an old folks home with a chain gun only passing away as the shuddering of the said weapon shuddering him to death and the last facial expression on his face being a huge cheeky grin that he used to have :D

Sorry to disappoint, but not many 90+ year olds tend to go out that way, GS.

I may be wrong, so why don't you ask an actuary what the odds are?

I saw a 'Biography' program on A&E about him a while back. They discussed the differences in birthdates. Seems the 1923 date is correct. They even showed his birth cirtificate with that year. If it's true (and it certainly appears to be), he's got to be one of the only film/tv celebrities who lies about his age upward.

Since he's had a sizeable chunk of his body amputated do we get discount if we book him for a live appearance?
